If you're expecting parent, there are lucky baby names for your little monkey.

According to Chinese calendar, this year, starting with Chinese New Year on February 8, is the year of the Fire Monkey. If you're expecting parent, there are lucky baby names for your little monkey.

Aidan

Small monkeys are considered cute, so diminutive names are appropriate. Irish for "little fire," Aidan is especially appropriate as 2016 is the year of the Fire Monkey.

Clementine

Since fruit is a mainstay of a monkey's diet, botanical names are a good fit. Quite fittingly, the small citrus is believed to have originated in China.

Apple

Laugh all you want, but Gwyneth Paltrow may have been on to something, as her daughter was born in 2004, the most recent monkey year.

Berry

So the boys can share in the bounty, this variation of Barry might also pay tribute to President Barack Obama's last year in the Oval Office.

Wei Wei

Like the outspoken Chinese artist, the name Wei Wei contains the Chinese character for "king," which is considered lucky for people born in the Year of the Monkey.

Rani

This Hindu girl's name means "queen."

Gibbons

This English name sounds stately, and it's also a type of monkey.

Ansgar

Names with meaning stemming from tools or weapons are appropriate for monkey babies, as primates display great skill in using tools like humans. This Swedish boy's name for "spear of God" hits the bull's-eye.

Goldie

Since monkeys belong to the metal family in the Chinese zodiac, this name is perfect for your fair-haired daughter.

Kim

In Vietnamese, this name means "gold." But stay away from the variation Kim-Ly, as it means "golden lion," which is too close to the monkey's nemesis, the tiger.
