Night time is the right time for baby names! Perfect under a crisp harvest moon, these names have serious “night owl” appeal.

It’s easy to be moonstruck with the lovely Luna. Penelope Cruz, Uma Thurman and Constance Marie have all chosen this luminary name for their daughters.

Nicole Richie & Joel Madden brought this name to light when they chose Sparrow James Midnight for their son in 2009.

Layla or Leila
The most popular of all “night names” (U.S. top 40 and climbing), Layla and its variations  have us on our knees — just like the titular character in the famous Eric Clapton song.

Want to get straight to the point? No name represents the shimmering night sky quite like Star! If that’s too literal for your tastes, Stella or Aster shine just as bright.

This streamlined classic is currently as popular as the day …or night…is long.

Vesper Lynd may be the ultimate Bond girl, but this name is masculine enough to work just as well for a boy. Plus its meaning (“evening star”) is pretty awesome.
