Summer is the season of sunshine, holidays & long lazy afternoons in the garden. Here are our top 10 summer baby names…

If you’re interested in Zodiac signs & your little one is due between July 23rd and August 22nd you could be having a little Leo! Warm, big-hearted & head-strong, the name Leo comes from the Latin word for Lion. While it’s traditionally a boy’s name, we think it works beautifully for girls too!
