Fall inspired baby names are often based around lots of trees and flowers. Nature always plays a big part in seasonal names, but many fall names kick it up a notch. Because of this, you have a lot more options for gender swapping. A name like Birch fits for anyone. 

Another place to look for fall-inspired names is the calendar or astrological charts. September could be a cool name, or maybe if your kiddo is born during Libra season, making that a middle name (or a first name!) You can also look to the colors of fall for name inspiration. You might not want to name your little one Red, but Cerise is a shade of red and a beautiful option for a baby name. Or something that goes with the color gold, yellow or orange. Shades of green also work too, like Emerald.
