From pumpkin spice lattes to apple-picking, the list of things to get excited about in autumn is long. But for fall-loving parents-to-be, the season can also provide a bit of baby name inspiration.

According to Pamela Redmond Satran from baby name website Nameberry, the expanding landscape of baby names — from word names to names based on colors — has brought about an increase in babies named after their parents' season of choice.

"Many parents today are looking for baby names with meaning, and the season your baby is born can be a great place to find inspiration," Redmond Satran told TODAY Parents. Autumn names that have become especially popular in recent years include Maple, Hazel, Forrest and Willow. The only Autumn name that sounds a bit dated is Autumn itself, but there are dozens of other choices to take her place."
