Nature Inspired Baby Names

When it comes to deciding on what to name your new baby, some parents can find themselves at loggerheads. You often discover how many people influenced your life (both positively and negatively) when going through the seemingly never ending lists of baby names.

One theme that has grown in popularity over the years is names inspired by nature and its beauty. Earthy names evoke a sense of wonder, creativity and freedom while floral and plant based names often evoke a feeling of fresh, vibrant and vivid imagery. In the past, nature inspired names have been thought of as for girls only – consider names such as Rose, Lily, Poppy. Boys names are definitely on the rise though – especially names that elicit a sense of woodsy, earthy charm such as River, Clay or Everest.    

So, if you are looking for something a little bit different – whether it be a blossoming flower to name your little girl or a deep rooted tree for your little boy – we have created a list of our top 10 favourite nature inspired names to help you out.
