Baby Names Inspired By Healthy Living

20 Baby Names That Imply Health and Wellness

by Brandi Koskie for

As parents we naturally want to give our kids the best of everything. We want to set them up for success right from the start. We weigh nursing versus bottles because we want to ensure they're getting the best nutrients to grow and stress over a million other things so that they are their healthiest. But what about their names? Have you ever considered the role that could play?

Of course, no parent haphazardly names their baby. A lot of time and consideration goes in to naming a kid. And for good reason. 

"A child's name does play an important role in their life. It is their identity to all others," said Lacey Moler of

If you want your child to have a healthy foundation from the start, and exude an air of health, fitness, and wellness throughout their life, consider giving your baby a name that means such things. Lacey cautions that it certainly won't determine their outcome, although we don't think it can hurt.

While naming your son Alan might not secure his destiny as a "warrior," naming your son Barack might just inspire him to become to be presidential. says that Barack means "a valiant warrior who cooperated with the prophetess Deborah to win victory in a battle against overwhelming odds." Sounds about right.

Gwyneth Paltrow's daughter, named Apple, might not expressly mean health, but it is certainly implied. And Courtney Cox's daughter, named Coco, might not be about the nutrient-rich cacao plant but we're happy to pretend that was the inspiration. 

We scoured lists of baby names, and tapped Lacey's insight, to find 20 names that mean or imply some variation of healthy, strength, and fitness. They're beautiful names on their own but could be the start of a long, healthful life for your new baby.
