Or any month name really? Do they have to match their birth month? I would feel kind of strange calling our daughter April if she was born in October, DH thinks it would be "naff" to have them match. Just wondered what the general consensus was.
when i saw it i think it was about 50/50... BUT i kind of think of april as being a more traditional name that is somehow separate from the month name, whereas summer is a bit of a new one... i have a friend called april who is late 30s and her birthday isn't in april, and it never occurred to me that it might be...
i have a cousin April who i have rarely seen. When i was a teen and she was about 5/6yr, i either hadnt met her before or hadnt for years, cant remember. Anyway, i was asking her questions and then i said when is your birthday and she said April and i was like 'oh doh! of course it is'. so upon hearing her name i didnt automatically think her birthday was then, but after i found out it was, i felt so daft asking such an 'obvious' question. i dont think it needs to match. i think Autumn should be born in the Autumn though.
I've never met a month named person who wasn't born in that month (although I have met someone with May as a middle name but she was very late so ended up being born in June after the parents were definitely decided on names)
I also know an autumn-born Summer which I don't find odd.
People will just assume her birthday is in April. I don't think there's too much wrong with it.
May is seen as a name separate from the month all the time, and I think June and April could be too, I love Avril, the french version, and I don't think that would be connected with the calendar at all.
Were all the little Eve/Evie and Dawns around born at dawn or dusk?
I don't think names such as April, May and June have to match the months. April is a sweet name and if you both like it, go with it. (Same with May and June) I think they are all quite strong, traditional names.
