30 Lovely Baby Names Inspired by Plant Life

My husband and I have been eagerly waiting to get started on our garden. We live on a farm now, so we’ve got BIG plans for it — growing all kinds of veggies, herbs, fruits, and flowers. Some of my favorite baby names come from the garden. Check them out!

1. Abiliene – A beautiful garden-inspired girl’s name, meaning “grass” or “green-cover” in Hebrew.

2. Amir – I love this sweet boy’s name. Amir is Arabic for “treetop.”

3. Aster – A gender-neutral name derived from the aster flower…

4. Birch – I think this would be the COOLEST middle name for a boy!

5. Bogart – Unusual, maybe. This boy’s name means “orchard.”

6. Cedar – I have a friend whose son’s name is Cedar. Such a unique name and perfect for your little outdoorsman.
