Florida Inspired Baby Names?

[name_m]Hi[/name_m] all,

We’re looking for some [name_f]Florida[/name_f] inspired baby names, SO is from [name_f]Florida[/name_f], the [name_m]Orlando[/name_m] area in particular. In terms of boys names, we’re open to anything but names ending -son are out due to his last name. He spent a lot of time near [name_m]Melbourne[/name_m], Fl as a kid as well, if that helps.
So far I have got:

[name_f]Avalon[/name_f] - He grew up in an area with [name_m]King[/name_m] [name_m]Arthur[/name_m]-esque place names.
[name_f]Azalea[/name_f] - He mentioned there’s an [name_f]Azalea[/name_f] [name_m]Park[/name_m] there.
[name_f]Clementine[/name_f] - After the iconic state [name_u]Orange[/name_u] [name_f]Blossom[/name_f].
[name_f]Moon[/name_f] - Because of [name_m]Apollo[/name_m] 11 the state gem is Moonstone.

Any other ideas? Thanks! :slight_smile:

[name_f]Luna[/name_f] - also means moon
[name_f]Ayla[/name_f] - it means moonlight, close enough?
[name_f]Lucine[/name_f] - it means moon
[name_f]Stellaluna[/name_f] - means stars and moon
[name_f]Selene[/name_f] - means moon godess
[name_f]Flora[/name_f] - sounds like [name_f]Florida[/name_f]
[name_f]Florence[/name_f] - same as [name_f]Flora[/name_f]
[name_f]Delphine[/name_f] - according to Google dolphins are a state symbol
[name_f]Blossom[/name_f] - again according to Google this is [name_f]Florida[/name_f]'s official state flower thing
[name_f]Hana[/name_f] - Japanese name that means blossom
[name_f]Sunshine[/name_f] - It is the “sunshine state” after all
[name_f]Solana[/name_f] - it means sunshine
[name_f]Tamara[/name_f] - it means palm tree, and wikipedia says the sabal palm is [name_f]Florida[/name_f]'s official tree
[name_f]Palmira[/name_f] - sounds like Palm
[name_f]Marjani[/name_f] - [name_f]Florida[/name_f]'s stone is the agatized coral, and [name_f]Marjani[/name_f] means coral
[name_f]Coralia[/name_f]/[name_f]Coralie[/name_f]/[name_f]Coraline[/name_f] - same as [name_f]Marjani[/name_f]
[name_f]Kailani[/name_f] - It means “sea and sky”. Enough said, considering [name_f]Florida[/name_f] is surrounded by sea, famous for its beaches and that its anthem is " “[name_f]Florida[/name_f] (Where the Sawgrass Meets the [name_u]SKY[/name_u])”
[name_f]Sema[/name_f] - Means sky, inspired by the anthem
[name_f]Ciel[/name_f] - same as [name_f]Sema[/name_f]
[name_u]Alani[/name_u] - It means “orange tree” and oranges are florida’s state fruit

[name_f]Hope[/name_f] that helped, it took a while!

I would also like to add [name_f]Thalassa[/name_f] because
a) it means sea
and b) it kinda sounds like Tallahassee :slight_smile: !

[name_f]Juno[/name_f] ([name_f]Juno[/name_f] [name_m]Beach[/name_m])
[name_u]August[/name_u] (St. [name_m]Augustine[/name_m])
[name_f]Mimi[/name_f] ([name_f]Miami[/name_f])
[name_u]Ever[/name_u] (Everglades)
[name_f]Lucy[/name_f] (St. [name_f]Lucie[/name_f])


I love the word/name [name_f]Florida[/name_f] itself.

Maybe you could use [name_f]Flora[/name_f] or [name_f]Florence[/name_f] since they have the same beginning as [name_f]Florida[/name_f]. :slight_smile:

for a boy or girl there’s [name_u]Merritt[/name_u], after [name_u]Merritt[/name_u] Island which isn’t too far from both [name_m]Melbourne[/name_m] and [name_m]Orlando[/name_m]
