Meaning:Early moon; May
If baby is up when the moon is up, consider the shining feminine name Satsuki. This Japanese moniker is certainly one to moon over. Satsuki means “early moon” and will encourage baby to keep dreaming, day or night. Interestingly enough, the name has a second meaning—Satsuki is the traditional Japanese name for the month of May. Now, whether baby is born in May or not, this name evokes images of springtime or summer, growth, and joy. The name Satsuki was also made popular by the character from Studio Ghibli’s My Neighbor Totoro, which you can watch with baby! So, give this name a chance—we think the man in the moon would agree.
