Top 50 Nature Names for Baby Girls

Nature is waking up again! Let’s celebrate by checking out which nature names are the most popular for baby girls right now. Ironically the top 50 list below includes all the seasons except for “Spring,” but it does feature lots of springtime things: flowers, birds, trees…

For this list I stuck to names that are also correctly spelled English words. This means that I skipped names that are non-English words (like Stella and Luna) and alternative spellings of words (like Brooke and Briar). I should also mention that several of the above (including Rowan, Robin, and Clementine) do have more than one etymology to choose from.

Here are links to the popularity graphs:

P.S. Nature names that didn’t quite make the top 50 included Stormy, Zinnia, Sandy, and Acacia.

  1. Although they wouldn’t fit your criteria since they aren’t proper English words, I wonder where the variations on the Latin “ver” which means spring — Verna, Vernia, Laverne – rank?
    As for favorite nature names, it’s not in the top 50, but I’ve always thought the name Lark was pretty (and I definitely prefer it to a couple of other ‘bird names’ that are currently far more popular).

  2. Verna would definitely be on the list somewhere, though I’m not sure how far down. I don’t believe there are any other variants of -vern- in the current dataset, at least on the girls’ side, but of course they’re still in use (just rare).
