You want to give your newest addition a name that captures how much you care for them and symbolizes all the love and joy they’ll bring into the world as they grow. Why not give them a name that means love? Maybe your newest addition was conceived during your honeymoon. Or maybe, they’ll be born on (or near) Valentine’s Day. Regardless of what inspires you to choose a girl name that means love or a boy name that means love, we’ve compiled a list of over 200 names to inspire you.
