Ideas for summer baby?

I really like [name_u]Dove[/name_u] or [name_f]Petal[/name_f], but I’m wondering if those names will age well. Last name starts with S and is also a palindrome.

I could maybe see [name_u]Dove[/name_u], but not [name_f]Petal[/name_f]-- it kind of has that [name_f]Blossom[/name_f] sense to me. What about [name_f]Paloma[/name_f], [name_u]Columba[/name_u], [name_u]Wren[/name_u], or [name_f]Lark[/name_f]?

I agree with the previous poster. I can envision [name_u]Dove[/name_u] but not [name_f]Petal[/name_f]. What about another nature or seasonal name such as:
[name_f]Aurora[/name_f]
[name_f]Briar[/name_f]
[name_f]Camellia[/name_f] - Floral name
[name_f]Flora[/name_f]
[name_u]River[/name_u]
[name_u]Seren[/name_u] - Welsh word for star
[name_u]Skye[/name_u]
[name_f]Soleil[/name_f] - means sun
[name_f]Willow[/name_f]
[name_f]Zara[/name_f] - no one has this name and I don’t know why. It’s gorgeous and so unusual yet totally easy to pronounce. It means “to blossom”

I second [name_f]Aurora[/name_f] :slight_smile:
Here are some names from the Nameberry post “38 [name_f]Secret[/name_f] Nature Names for girls”
[name_f]Anthea[/name_f] “flowery”
[name_u]Blair[/name_u] “dweller on the plain”
[name_f]Cordelia[/name_f] “daughter of the sea”
[name_f]Daphne[/name_f] “laurel tree”
[name_f]Indra[/name_f] “possessing drops of rain”
[name_f]Leilani[/name_f] “heavenly flower”
[name_f]Sefarina[/name_f] “gentle wind”
[name_f]Sylvia[/name_f] “from the forest”
[name_f]Yara[/name_f] “butterfly”

I agree that I think [name_u]Dove[/name_u] would age better than [name_f]Petal[/name_f].

Some nature names I like:
[name_f]Magnolia[/name_f]
[name_f]Nova[/name_f]
Azelie
[name_f]Ivy[/name_f]
[name_f]Luna[/name_f]
[name_f]Briar[/name_f]
[name_u]Prairie[/name_u]
[name_f]Plum[/name_f]
[name_f]Primrose[/name_f]
[name_f]Clover[/name_f]
[name_f]Hazel[/name_f]
[name_f]Iris[/name_f]
Meridian
[name_f]Sapphira[/name_f]

Alinta - means flame, so quite a strong summery meaning
[name_f]Suvi[/name_f] - Finnish for summer
[name_f]Viridiana[/name_f] - green

I personally love love love [name_u]Dove[/name_u]. I can’t say I’m a fan of [name_f]Petal[/name_f] though.

[name_u]Dove[/name_u] is better than [name_f]Petal[/name_f], but honestly I can’t see either being very wearable [name_m]IRL[/name_m]. I like the suggestions of [name_f]Paloma[/name_f], [name_u]Wren[/name_u], [name_f]Briar[/name_f], [name_u]Seren[/name_u], [name_f]Willow[/name_f], [name_f]Ivy[/name_f], [name_f]Hazel[/name_f], [name_f]Luna[/name_f] and [name_f]Iris[/name_f].

[name_u]Juniper[/name_u]
[name_f]Wisteria[/name_f]
[name_f]Florence[/name_f]
Leto (means “summer” in Russian)
[name_f]Gardenia[/name_f]
[name_f]Ivy[/name_f]
[name_f]Zinnia[/name_f]
[name_f]Daisy[/name_f]
[name_f]Lavender[/name_f]

I do like [name_f]Daisy[/name_f] a lot and [name_f]Aurora[/name_f] and [name_f]Suvi[/name_f]. [name_f]Lily[/name_f] is great, but too common. Maybe Sayuri it’s Japanese for “small lilly” (baby is a quarter Japanese)

Aww my favorite combo [name_f]Aviva[/name_f] Joule would be perfect except that’s more spring than summer

[name_f]Aviva[/name_f] I like that and it’s a palindrome

[name_f]Paloma[/name_f]! It means [name_u]Dove[/name_u]

[name_f]Dawn[/name_f]
[name_f]Soleil[/name_f]
[name_u]Rae[/name_u]
[name_f]Oceana[/name_f]
[name_f]Azul[/name_f]
[name_f]Pearl[/name_f]
[name_f]Genevieve[/name_f]
[name_f]Isla[/name_f]
[name_f]Kyra[/name_f]
[name_f]Terra[/name_f]
[name_f]Meadow[/name_f]
[name_u]Vale[/name_u]
[name_f]Aviva[/name_f]
[name_f]Posy[/name_f]

I like [name_f]Meadow[/name_f] too. There’s just too many beautiful names to choose from :slight_smile:

Are you OK with fn & surname both starting with S?
If so, do consider initials when adding a mn.

[name_u]Juniper[/name_u] [name_f]Rose[/name_f]
[name_u]Juniper[/name_u] [name_f]Daisy[/name_f]
[name_u]Juniper[/name_u] [name_u]Dove[/name_u]

[name_u]Juniper[/name_u] [name_f]Rose[/name_f]
[name_u]Juniper[/name_u] [name_f]Daisy[/name_f]
[name_u]Juniper[/name_u] [name_u]Dove[/name_u]

I have been thinking about that. When looking at boy’s names I picked [name_m]Amadeus[/name_m] Stockton until I realized those initials were very bad lol
