Aspen: The trendy US ski resort gives many parents name inspiration; in 2014, Aspen was the 397th most popular girls name in America.

Aubin: French for "white".

Bianca: Latin for "white, fair skinned", Bianca was ranked number 360 in the US in 2014.

Crispin: While it means "curly haired", this name is perfect for a baby born on a crisp, blue-skied winter day.
