Autumn makes us think of drinking cups of hot chocolate, and carving out pumpkins for Halloween. It makes us think of crunchy yellow, orange and brown leaves, and running through piles of them in the park.


Sure, the weather's never amazing, but we're all wrapped up warm in scarves and coats anyway - and hey, it's not yet quite as bitter as winter.

For many, autumn is the best season ??? So, if you're due to give birth in September, October or November, why not give your little one a name suitable for those cosy fall months?

Here are just some of the boys and girls names we really love for autumn:
