Nature Names

I'm hoping for a new idea than the hundreds of nature names I've researched. We have a Lilly (Lillian) and I'd love to use another nature name.

I like Magnolia and River for girls, but don't know if they're too "out there." I also like Ivy and Sage, but my husband does not. I'm at a loss for boy nature names. We have a very masculine last name.

While I know that nature names aren't everyone's cup of tea, any help would be appreciated.

Re: Nature Names

  • I LOVE Magnolia. It's on my list. I think of River as a boys name, probably because of River Pheonix.

    Iris, Willow, Violet, Rose, Briar, Sky, Luna, Juniper, Rain, Brooke, Wren, Fern

    Do you have a heritage that you could draw on, eg an Italian word for something from nature?

    Boys are tough. I'm drawing a blank sorry.

  • Thanks! No name worthy heritage here, I'm mutt and my husband is German. I love Briar, but it's difficult with our last name. I also like Bryce for a girl (like Bryce Canyon).

    The only boys names I can think of are Stone, Hunter, Kai( means ocean)
    And to add to the girls i like Fawn

  • I think for girls pretty much any flower name would work.  One of my most guilty pleasure names is Winter (judge away).

    For boys maybe Reid, River, or Forrest.

  • I love Winter too! This baby will be born in July, so that might be odd.

    Sage and River are both unisex to me.

    Dawn is my favorite girls nature name. I also like Sierra and Rose.

    My name is Misty. I like it but I wouldn't use it myself.

  • No new suggestions, but I like these:
    Girls - Violet, Ivy, Iris, Sage
    Boys - Aspen, River
  • Nature names are my favorite, I have most of them on my current name list.

    River and Bear are my top boy names, more than likely we will be choosing one of these. My favorite nature girl names are Lake and Meadow at the moment.

    I also really like Stormy, but as an 80's kid, it keeps reminding me of my favorite My Little Pony toy.

    I love nature names too. I think all my kids may end up with them. :) I could see you having a boy named Bear. I love LOVE Fox, but I can't convince DH to go for it (not that I have the guts to actually use it) but if I get to have a boy every, I totally plan on calling him Fox or Little Fox. Also, congrats @tealowl on your BFP! I was ridiculously excited for you when I heard you were KU. I imagine you having the coolest little kid. :)
