Fave nature names for boys

I’ve asked this same question over on the girls forum, but very interested in knowing your thoughts for boys too. What is your favorite nature name for boys? I’m defining nature as broad as you like here. [name]Keen[/name] to find some new faves for my future children.

Current favorites are [name]Beech[/name] and [name]Raven[/name].

Buteo (prn Byou-[name]TAY[/name]-oh) The genus name for a group of hawks including [name]Red[/name]-tailed hawks
[name]LOVE[/name] [name]Raven[/name]! They are my favorite birds :slight_smile:
I know there are more, but I’m too sleepy to remember them :wink: I love nature names! I fear I’m a bit of a hippie. I doubt I’ll get to use any of these names, even in the middle spot, but I can dream right?

[name]Heath[/name] - a hardy, shrubby, beautiful plant.
[name]Rowan[/name] - A tree.
[name]Jasper[/name] - a stone.
[name]Onyx[/name] - Also a stone.
[name]Wolf[/name] - I love this, but can’t use it, its one of my brother’s names.
[name]Linden[/name] - Another tree name.

The others I like aren’t in English.


some are obvious, but some I’ve included because they have nature meanings

These are mine that I’d actually use someday includes word and animals of nature:

[name]Sirius[/name] - the star
[name]Doon[/name] / [name]Dune[/name]
[name]Zephyr[/name] - wind
[name]Nile[/name] - the river
[name]Caspian[/name] - the sea
[name]Cayenne[/name] - spice

I might be missing some

[name]Bay[/name] - mn only for me
[name]Jasper[/name] - sort of counts
[name]Quince[/name] - it’s a fruit
[name]Silas[/name] - means “wood,” so it totally counts. :slight_smile:

Hmm. I’m not a huge fan of nature names for boys, it seems, but I do like these:

[name]August[/name] (eh, probably not a nature name but it was the first thing I thought of. Nature, seasons, etc… I’d make it work. haha)
[name]Brooks[/name] (I think it should count, haha)
[name]Bear[/name] (absolutely love this!)
[name]Fox[/name] (eh, iffy about it, but I feel like my list should be longer. haha.)

[name]Hawthorne[/name] (although [name]Hawthorn[/name] is a rather nice suburb in my city, so I find it unusable)
Babar (means lion - but I forget in which language!)
Behar (means summer in Albanian)


I’ve always liked the name [name]Sorrell[/name].
