Welcome your new addition between June 21 and July 22 and you'll have a Cancer in your life. Those born under this fourth sign of the zodiac are ruled by the moon, with its associations with fertility and tides. That aquatic link is triply appropriate, given that Cancer is represented by the sea creature the crab and is a water sign. It's not surprising they love being near water. This water element also influences their tendency to be ruled by their emotions and heart.

Imagination and intuition are two of the greatest aspects of Cancerians. They're also sympathetic and loyal and are said to care more deeply about their family and home than any other sign of the zodiac. They're sentimental and sensitive, too, valuing affection and safety. Be guided by these associations as you take your pick from 38 Cancer baby names.
