What are your thoughts on using Autumn (as mn in my case) for a Spring baby?

Similarly using April/May for a baby not born in that month? Not planning on using these but I guess the principal is the same!

Personally I don't think it matters what you call your children and when. If someone made a point of saying oh know you can't do that I'd do it all the more LOL but that's just me.

I wouldn't do it, but plenty of people do. Friends called their daughter Augusta and she was born in January. The name itself doesn't mean August but they got fed up with all the comments and having to explain themselves.

For a Spring baby how about a flower name? Violet, Rose, Lily, Primrose, Iris, Daisy, Capucine etc., etc. (presuming they all flower in Spring?!) and my favourite Flora.

Well I'm guessing she was conceived in the autumn?

I think it would be fine and I personally wouldn't care. Autumn is a lovely name btw

I know a Summer born in October. As far as I know no one ever bats an eyelid.
