The name Griffin is linked to the heraldic use of animals. More specifically, it’s the Greek creature that boasts an eagle’s head and lion’s hind. Fierce!
Linnea is a popular Scandinavian name originating from Swedish botanist Carl von Linne who developed the Linnean system of classifying animals. And you certainly can’t have a zoo without animal classes, yes?
Eva means “life” or “animal,” a suitable name for a baby born into a family of zoo fans.
We can’t forget the king of the animals, yes? Leo means “lion.”
In Greek mythology, Fauna was goddess of the animals. A lovely name for a future zoo director, perhaps?
My personal favorite, gibbons are a species of monkeys with loads of personality. A perfect pick for an energetic baby boy!
Paloma symbolizes peace, a dove-inspired name for a soft-spoken and sweet-natured baby girl.
Not only is the phoenix an iconic bird, but the city of Phoenix has one of the nation’s top five zoos for kids. Bonus points!
Conan means “high hound” or “wolf” – a great Celtic name for those who prefer a more subtle zoo-inspired name!
Pippa means “lover of horses” – perfect for those future pony rides at the zoo!
Wren means, quite literally, “bird” – one of the noisiest, most vibrant exhibits at the zoo! (Besides the monkeys, of course!)
A strong, modern name, Wolf is a great pick for trendy parents who love watching these sophisticated dogs at the zoo!
A soft, sweet bird-inspired name, Lark would be a darling name for your favorite tender-hearted baby girl.
Burly and brave, foxes are fun to watch on the prowl at our local zoo. And how great of a name is “Fox”? So perfectly strong.
Phineas means “a serpent’s mouth,” which I certainly like to steer clear from when visiting my own zoo!
