It’s that time again — the Olympics! If, like us, you’ve been on the edge of your seat waiting for the 2020 Summer Olympics and baby to arrive, then you have come to just the right place. Finding inspiration from Olympians is as easy as breathing; they are as close to superheroes as we can get! So whether you’re looking to inspire baby to be a future Olympian or you want to give them more general inspiration to latch onto, picking a baby girl or baby boy name inspired by the Olympics is a great place to start.

The Olympics have been on quite the journey since their origination in 776 BCE in Olympia, Ancient Greece. These began as a tribute to honoring the Greek god Zeus and were on a 4 year rotation for 12 centuries. However, there was a hiatus, but the first modern era games were resumed in 1896 and has been a tradition since. With so many jaw-dropping feats that have made history throughout the centuries at these games, it’s hard not to feel like these names transport you.

Giving baby this amount of inspiration from day one might actually be spoiling them, but that was the plan anyways, right? By choosing a baby name from the Olympics, baby will automatically have a role model to look up to and a story to their name. Maybe you want baby to understand the multicultural importance of us humans coming together to break records or maybe you truly just loved the strength of Simone Biles. Either way, these Olympic baby names are something to be admired. Enjoy this list of baby names inspired by the Olympics by trying them out to see what fits with your idea of baby.
