What can inspire deeper gratitude than your baby’s impending arrival? Finding the perfect name for your little pumpkin! Here’s a bounty of baby names inspired by Thanksgiving:

Shakira & Milan
Pop singer Shakira’s hips don’t lie and neither do we: Both her and her son Milan’s names mean “thankful”.

The originator of the now-popular -en names trend (think Caiden, Hayden, Jaden, etc.) is a classic Hebrew name meaning “to give thanks”.

Asher means “blessed”, so there’s no better name for a baby born during the season of counting one’s blessings.

Meryl Streep, Kevin Costner, Mark Wahlberg and Elisabeth Hasselback are just a few celebrities who have chosen this gracious moniker for their daughters.

It’s the way Swahili speakers say “thank you,” as well as the first name of singer-songwriter Ashanti and Atlanta Falcon cornerback Asante Samuel.
