Spring is here and new life is blooming everywhere! If you happen to be a pregnant mama, you’ve got new life blooming within you as well – what a wonderful feeling! The moms on the Girls Crochet Headbands team all agree: one of the most difficult and most fun things about having a baby is picking out the perfect name for your precious bundle of joy. It’s such a great responsibility to choose how your child will be known his or her whole life. And the hardest part? Choosing one that both parents can agree on! Well, there’s no time like the present to be inspired in your hunt for that perfect moniker, and since spring is in the air, we were inspired to comb the baby-name-o-sphere to find some of the coolest nature-themed baby names for boys and girls.
Baby Girl Names
Expecting a little girl? There are tons of gorgeous nature names to choose from. Of course, you could go with the season she’s born in: Winter, Spring, Summer, and Autumn are all unique and flattering names for girls. Do you love to garden? Let a favorite plant or flower serve as her namesake. Babycenter.com’s baby names section is a great resource for blossom-inspired girl names like Fern, Ivy, Petal, Daisy, and Clover. Do you love the majesty and power of the weather and the skies? Names such as Solstice, Tempest, Dawn, Sunny, or Nova might suit your heavenly little babe.
Baby Boy Names
If you have a baby boy on the way, we found some great environmentally inspired names for your baby guy on EveryDayFamily.com. Are you into hiking, rock climbing, and camping? Strong names such as Canyon, Cliff, Forest, Stone, or Everest might be just right for your little boy. Prefer to focus on the growing aspect of nature? Consider using plant and tree names like Leaf, Hawthorn, Jasper, Heath, or Banyan. Lastly, if animals are your favorite part of the wild, your baby boy might just be a Linx, Hawk, or Talon.
Naming a new baby isn’t easy, but it sure is fun! How long did it take you to choose a name for your little one, and what was your inspiration? We’d love to hear your name choices in the comments.
