Autumn is colorful, and represents change. "Colors outside the lines"

I love this name. It reminds me of a beautiful girl or woman who can stand up for themselves and needs no motivation.

There's this amazing song from a group named "From Autumn to Ashes" which is called "Autumn's Monologue". Even though they are a hard rock band that song is amazing! Also, I think that Autumn is one of the best names I've ever heard.

I think Autumn is a beautiful name. I think it's a name a girl could grow up with.

My name is Autumn and at times I really don't like my name because people get it confused with Adam or Amber. But I love how it's so by itself, at my high school I'm the only one named Autumn and you don't get that too much. I think it is a pretty name and I get compliments all the time for it. I don't know what it means but I like it.

My daughter's name is Autumn, and like another poster she gets called "Adam" and "Amber" a lot. She also hears a lot of "April". Nevertheless, she fits her name with her reddish hair. It is also nice that there are no other Autumns in her school.

Our daughter's name is Autumn Rain, and we have had a lot of people call her Adam also, but I love her name because it is not very common. My husband and I always had very common names and we didn't want our daughters to be like that too.
-- GeminiBear618  11/21/2005
We have one daughter and we named her Autumn MacKenzie. I have always liked the name Autumn. I also wanted something that wasn't too common and that couldn't be shortened. Many people also think I'm saying "Adam" when I tell them her name is Autumn. It irritates me, haha. It is a pretty name though.

My 6 year old Goddaughter's name is Autumn and I just absolutely love it. I would've named my first daughter Autumn, but my best friend beat me to it! I've never thought how people would mistake her name for the ones mentioned by those who also commented. I'll have to ask my friend if she's had any problems like that. My dad jokes with Autumn and asks "how's little Fall doing?" in reference to the other name for the season! She's just a sweetheart and the name suits her well.

My name is Autumn. I'm the only girl at my school with my name. It rocks because when there is 2 other kids with the same name, you get mixed up. But with a name that no one has, it rocks.
-- junebuge2000  2/10/2006
I think this is a really pretty name. I knew a girl back in school with the name Autumn and she did get teased some with it, most people would tell her not to fall down or to make like a tree and leaf, so that is the only thing that sticks in my mind but I still really like the name.
-- Anonymous User  4/25/2006
My name is Autumn and I like it because it's not common. Also there's another girl at my school whose name is Autumn. I thought that was so weird. She's the only other Autumn I've met. It does get easily confused though.

The name Autumn is very unique. But technically, it's just a word, so a person with this name could be kind of embarrassed.

American supermodel Autumn Hyle bears the name.
-- audreyhubley  8/28/2006
It is a very pretty name. I like most names with an m like Emma, Amy, and Autumn.
-- Emma McHnery  8/31/2006
My name is April, sometimes I do get called Autumn. I don't mind because it is such a beautiful name! Granted it is 'just a word' but all names are including mine. By the way Autumn Rain is the best name I have seen in a very long time.

My name is Autumn and my middle name is Rose. I love the sound of it. It's a very pretty name and isn't common, and I like that.

I think Autumn is really pretty. It's the only season name I like. I love it.

My name is Autumn, and I've experienced both the ups and downs of it. First of all, my older sister is Ashley (my parents wanted "A" names) so she always had little note pads and pencils with her name on it while I had to specially order them. While I was constantly mixed up with Ashley, I also was called Amber, ironically my cousin's name, a lot as well. I like the comment about it being "colorful"; I always negatively took it as the season when everything dies. However, now that I'm older, I constantly get comments about how beautiful it is. Many say the name suits me, or that I even look like Autumn because of my red hair and fair skin. I recommend this name if you know your baby will "look" like the fall colors, but beware, I've gotten "Don't fall, Autumn" a lot. Also, beware that those with a southern accent might adjust the pronunciation to sound more like "AW-DUMB", which isn't flattering sometimes. In an era where names are tending to take more of a natural tone, Autumn is both earthy but keeps its elegance. I agree, this name doesn't have any previous association (like celebrities or historical figures) which allows the person to take it as their own. I almost take offense to the comment stating that its just a word - aren't all names "just words"? Hopefully I've done my part in defining it as classy and dignified!

I simply cannot see a boy being named 'Autumn'. This seems very feminine to me, and I love it for a girl. It is a very, very pretty name. ;)
-- Pheadirean  12/15/2006
Autumn is what we call in Britain (and some other places in the world) Fall. Autumn is a season name and in Britain it's like being called Summer or Winter. Nothing is wrong with this, I like the name but here not many girls are called that because of the association and I suppose most American girls have no idea what their name actually means, but then again it is wonderfully pretty and is spelt nice too. Hope it doesn't come stupidly popular.
-- Anonymous User  1/22/2007
Just for the record, the US does use "Autumn" as a season. Autumn vs. Fall tends to be a regional thing, but I have yet to meet a single person in my entire life here that doesn't know what Autumn is.

This name is something you can really grow up with, and grow into, though.

If this name wasn't so common for girls I would really like it on a boy. It's pretty on girls, and I think it would be handsome on a boy.
-- Jasmine  2/23/2007
My name's Autumn and I always hated it growing up. Unfortunately I had a lot of annoying boys on my street calling me everything from days of the week (Wednesday most often) to months (April, or August) to seasons other than mine (Winter). Other "A" names both male and female were up for grabs as was "Bottom" ha ha ha. Also I spent the last 6 years of school with an Otto, and the last 4 with another Autumn. Spelling has also been a problem for me (Atum, Ottom, Otum, Adum, ect.) While I love my name now it was a long time coming for me. Most of my youth was spent dreaming up new names for myself. I always thought it was bland.
-- forty11gurl  3/6/2007
I'd prefer this as a second name, i.e. Kaylee Autumn Smith.
-- Luangi  4/9/2007
I love this name but people sure do pick on me about it. But it is very beautiful and it tells you a lot about the person's personality.
-- autumn_18  6/3/2007
My niece's name is Autumn Faith. I think it's a beautiful name. But I'm worried people won't get her name right and call her Adam.
-- joanie2007  8/5/2007
Such a wonderful name! Quirky but nice. I love Autumn and Summer as names.
-- Anonymous User  8/12/2007
In England, the accent pronounces Autumn very differently to Adam, so it's unlikely to get confused here.

There ought to be a law protecting innocent babies from such stupid names.

I love this name, I think it's so pretty. There is a famous photographer and music video director named Autumn de Wilde.

The name "Autumn" reminds me of a pretty girl, with long auburn hair. It's a pretty nice name in my opinion. :D

I think the name Autumn is absolutely lovely! It makes me think of a girl who is intelligent, beautiful, and down-to-earth.
-- Anonymous User  3/10/2008
This is a nice name, but it doesn't quite have the same charm anymore, now that it's become so common. I hate the fact that some Americans pronounce this as AH-dum, which sounds like a foreign/pretentious pronunciation of Adam. The name can't really blow people away if it's popular, so I'd wait until people don't use it so much anymore.
-- slight night shiver  4/19/2008
I think it is just a beautiful name.
-- arome1226  5/1/2008
My name is Autumn which I used to not like but now I love it. There aren't very many Autumns. I was named Autumn because it was my mom's favorite season. What's also cool is that I was born in the autumn/fall which is totally awesome and I could never see Autumn on a boy but if you like it that's cool. When I think of the name in general I think of a person that is very strong and independent. People who judge others' names which I understand is why you're commenting but maybe those who think it should be illegal for people to name their children Autumn maybe should go look back on their own names and see if their names are all that great but that's just my opinion. I am very glad to grow up with this name and the teasing usually stops around elementary school so it's not a big deal to me.

A famous bearer of the name is American actress Autumn Reeser.
-- Zan11  8/5/2008
I have no clue why the hell someone would confuse "Autumn" with "Adam". I named my daughter Autumn Renea and the only thing people sometimes forget is to add the "n" at the end when they spell it. I don't know where you people are from where it sounds like "Adam". I'm from Tennessee and no one around here pronounces is "AW-DUMB" and this place has plenty of deep southern accents. I've always heard it pronounced correctly.
-- sysie  11/14/2008
The first time I heard this name was when I was little and I met an Australian couple with a baby girl named Autumn. I'd never heard the name before and I thought it was strange. The father kept saying the name in a sing-song way and I loved the way it sounded. I've liked the name a great deal ever since, but given it's apparent popularity (although I've never met anyone with this name since) I'd only name a child this if she was born on the autumnal equinox.

I really think that this is a pretty name. Autumn is one of my favourite seasons as well! There was a girl who I used to go to school with with that name. I LOVED IT!

This name is actually quite lovely, and is the only season name that I like as a person's name. Unfortunately, it seems to be used a lot by white trash.
-- bananarama  8/21/2009
I adore this name. Autumn's my favorite season: The beautiful leaves, the cool but not cold air, Halloween, being able to wear just about anything depending on the day. If I had a daughter, her name would be this.
-- Lait du Chocolat  9/28/2009
Autumn is a nice, clean name. The Autumn I know is a giving, funny, cute girl, who never has anything had to say.

I have a cousin named Autumn. I love the colors of the season but I don't think the name is amazing.

A really nice name :) I can't imagine naming my daughter it though.

Born in 1954, I was named Autumn Michele after my mother whose name was likely Florence Autumn, but she always went by Autumn. In Catholic grammar school in the early '60's the nuns used to always ask "What is your Christian name?" "Michele, sister." Later, I would more commonly get, "Is that your real name?" I don't get either of these questions anymore, as, sadly, the name has come into common use.

When people do not hear me right, I sometimes get called "Adam", but more often (and there is a Facebook Group dedicated to the wrong names we Autumns are called) "Amber".

I love my name and it has imparted to me a strong sense of individuality. It is not a name for the faint of heart.

In trying to establish early use of the name, I can add that my mother, born in Galveston, TX in 1924 was named Autumn and she was told that she was named for a nurse or caretaker. It may have been in some use in the south, perhaps in LA or TX for some time before coming into more general use in the '60's.

I have heard, but cannot verify that the Japanese do sometimes use the Japanese word for Autumn as a name.

I think this name is beautiful. It's the name of my baby niece, and Autumn is my boyfriend's sister's name. She's gorgeous, and she's become one of my closest friends. I love this name!
-- alexandra-eva  7/14/2010
I will call my daugther this :)
Autumn comes from the Latin ''Autumnus'' and was a commoner name back then. Women were called ''Autumne'' and men ''Autumnus''. =D Isn't that marvelous? I will do everything for my to be born on Autumn so I can call her like that! ^_^ I hope they will know to pronounce it in Mexico. They usually say ''Otiumn''.

Violinist and singer Emilie Autumn was born as Emilie Autumn Liddell.
She was given the middle name of Autumn as she was born in September; the Autumn months.

It's rather cute, but at the same time, it's a bit immature and has the slightest whisper of "trendy". Not bad, but not the best.
-- Black_X  7/29/2011
I love the name Autumn. I have only known one person with this name, thankfully she was pleasant. I would like to use it if I have a daughter.
-- GibsonGirl  8/18/2011
I think Autumn Russell would be a good name for a character, as in a rustle in the Autumn leaves.
-- Hushpuppy  9/19/2011
I've always thought that this is very pretty as a name and reflects the beauty of the season. I'm confused how someone could confuse calling a girl named Autumn with Amber (or anything else), or worse- Adam. O.o

I love this name - it sounds youthful, feminine and unique. The only problem is finding a middle name.
-- foreverslowly  6/28/2012
I'm Australian and I named my daughter Autumn. I love this name, obviously. I wanted something different without being too weird. It's not a popular name here and I am yet to meet another "Autumn". With our accent the only confusion of the pronunciation is people thinking I've called her "Awsome"! And the spelling. It's amazing how many people think it's spelt AUTUM. I must admit though, my mother has an American accent and she does pronounce it a little different, Audum, so I can see where the Adam "could" come from. I love the name and couldn't imagine her being anything but Autumn.

Autumn Patricia Phillips (nee. Kelly) who married Peter Phillips the son of Princess Anne and Captain Mark Phillips.
-- Indy  3/4/2013
My name's Autumn and I have a mixed feeling for my name. It gets mixed up with April and Amber all the time. Nobody really knows my name either. Its nice to have because I was born on October 11 and I have a golden red hair color so it matches me. The worst thing with my name was when I went to an Irish camp and my name was translated to Irish and it was fomher (pronounced four. Boring right?!?).

I think Autumn is a beautiful name. I would name my daughter that in a heartbeat. Autumn Rosalie is a gorgeous name. And Autumn is my favorite season.
-- littlered82  7/23/2013
My first and middle name is Autumn Rae. I love my name and have always gotten many compliments on it. I am very artistic and feel that my name captures me perfectly. However, my biggest pet peeve is that people constantly mistake my name for Amber! I don't understand it because they do not sound similar. The other thing is that you can't shorten it or nickname it, unless you want people calling you AUT or even worse Audi.

Richard Hugh "Ritchie" Blackmore, famed British guitarist and songwriter of the bands Deep Purple and Rainbow (and currently of the folk-rock band Blackmore's Night), and his wife Candice Lauren Night have a daughter named Autumn Esmerelda, who was born May 27th, 2010.
-- la-petite-rachel  2/7/2014
I love the imagery that comes to mind with the name Autumn. It is feminine and strong.

The only problem I have with this name is the different pronunciations. For example, I pronounce Autumn as "Aw-dum" (like dumb). This doesn't sound good at all, but most Americans pronounce the T sound as a D sound... I have also heard it pronounced "Aw-dem" and "Aw-dim/Aw-Tim." So, I would not name anyone this personally because I don't like all of the different pronunciations! It's just confusing... but I love the meaning and the feminine quality of the name Autumn : )

Autumn is my youngest daughters' name. I was looking through a list of names, and it just jumped right out at me! I knew immediately it was the one. I had grown up with a few girls named Autumn, and thought it was beautiful, and different. It's a sweet and feminine name. I always got so many compliments when she was little!
