Parents have turned to the natural world for baby name inspiration for eons, and yes, this does include animal names.
From birds to insects to large predators, the animal world has plenty to choose from for your baby's name. This naming convention is not a new one, nor is it the exclusive domain of celebrities, who often choose kooky baby names simply because they can. So while there are plenty of celeb kids with name like Bear Blu (Alicia Silverstone's son), Birdie and Cricket (daughters of Busy Philips) and Elsie Otter (Zooey Deschanel's daughter), there are plenty left for the rest of us. Many of these names would work great for boys or girls, too, and if you're not sold on them as a first name, maybe they'd work as a middle name.
There are also tons of baby names that have an animal meaning, so if you love animals but aren't feeling the above names, here are a few to check out.
