22 Celestial Baby Names That Are Beyond Heavenly

As a new mom, choosing a baby name was something that I had so much fun doing, but took pretty seriously. Sure, there are dozens of names that sound cute and adorable when practiced with the phrase, "Come here *fill in the blank!*" But when I researched the definition of some, I wasn't necessarily a fan of labeling my then-unborn child with certain definitions.


Celestial Baby Names For Your Bundle of Joy

While many traditional names are making a comeback, celestial baby names serve as a subtle and notable reminder that your little one is a gift from above. They're angelic, simply beautiful, yet exude strength and dominion. But the best part is that their definition will salute your little one every time you call their name.
