Botanical Baby Names








Botanical baby names aren’t just for the green at heart. Nature names for babies have a natural meaning, but are great for parents looking for options that are less mainstream (pun intended!). Baby names have long been derived from plants, trees, spices and flowers. It won’t be surprising to meet a few more baby girls named Lily in the world as Modern Family’s own Lily Tucker-Pritchett makes the flowery name a standard household option.

If you want a baby name that links your child to an Earthly meaning, there are oceans of possibilities. Here are our top favorites of botanical baby names.

Aster (Greek): Star; September birth flower
Forrest (French): From the woods
Briar (English): Thorny plant

Saffron (English): Spice; Yellow color
