Naming babies has never been something has come easily for me and my husband. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that we are the most indecisive people on the planet, easily throwing back the “I don’t know, what to do you want for dinner?” comments back and forth for hours, but whatever the issue is, baby naming = agonizing.
We struggled for months to pick names for our first daughter; we didn’t find out what we were having, so we doubled the trouble with picking two names, just in case.
With my second pregnancy, so great was our inner turmoil and indecisiveness in choosing names that we settled only a girl’s name. We hadn’t found out (again) what we were having, so we were actually taking a great risk in only choosing a girl’s name. Our conversation surrounding names went a little something like this:

There is something so captivating to me about a name that can be used as a boy or a girl name. The names that can be used for either seem to be the most unique to me. When we were naming our son this was sort of a theme for me. I wanted a unique but classic sounding name. I have put together a list of names that are captivatingly classy and unique but also can be used for either gender. This list is sure to be a favorite for the parents out there that are waiting to find out what their bundle of joy will be!

I have a bit of a thing for nature inspired baby names and my running list of baby name favorites is filled to the brim with them. My daughter’s name is Fern, so while we’ve been hunting for baby names, I loved the idea of coming up with another nature name to pair with hers. The problem? Everything I came up with sounded oddly like an Etsy shop. Case in point: one of my girl’s name favorites, Flora. “Fern & Flora”? Definitely Etsy-esque. In our search for a name for baby boy, we’ve finally come upon one that we love. While my husband isn’t ready to let me share it just yet, we’re 95% settled and I can let you in on a hint: the name we chose has a nature meaning. I love that it’s not a typical “nature name,” but it’s kinda fun that it still fits into the nature theme in a secret way. It got me inspired to search for more baby names that have secret nature meanings. There are some really great ones I definitely added to my list of favorites as back up!
