Giving your baby a name from nature is a wonderful way to share your love of the outdoors with him. Some nature baby names are used often — others, not so much. These baby names, from Mother Nature herself, are a little more off the beaten track.
Nature baby names are often unique, with an interesting sound and melody. Some sound hippy-ish, and some are simply hauntingly beautiful.
These baby names are not all easily categorized as either girl or boy names. Some, like Ivy, are more girly, but Sage would make a great name for a boy or a girl. Still others, like Forest, are usually given to boys, but there is no reason it has to be a boy name. Some of these baby names can give a fun lift to a family or traditional first name. If you’d like to liven up a baby’s full name, but are determined to give him the first name Matthew after his father, these hip nature baby names would work really well as a middle name choice. What about Matthew Fox, or Anna River? Your baby is yours to name, and these choices are calling you.
