Hippie Baby Names ~ Groovy Picks for Your Bohemian Flower Child

Were you a “flower child” or were your parents part of the whole hippie era? During the mid ’60’s, hippie fashions, names and values were a huge part of our American culture and took everything from music and television to fashion and baby names (yes baby names) by storm.

Flower, Storm, Ocean, names inspired by nature or those having a very carefree, earthy feel to them were popular and I’ve noticed that quite a few of them are beginning to make a comeback. Celebrities are notorious for choosing unique names for their little ones and more than several have chosen bohemian names for their child.
