Majestic naturey sister names for Aurora

[name_m]Hi[/name_m]! We just found out our second baby will be another girl. Our toddler is [name_f]Aurora[/name_f], named after the Northern Lights. We’re looking for another nature-y name that leans more into the “conjures up images of spectacular nature” more so than floral names. Some that I liked that my husband has vetoed are:

  • [name_u]Jasper[/name_u] (after the Canadian national park)

  • [name_u]Aspen[/name_u]

  • I also like [name_f]Autumn[/name_f], but our kid will be born in [name_u]February[/name_u], so I don’t know if that works

So far the only one we both sort of like is [name_u]River[/name_u], but it’s maybe a little too “obvious” and less “evokes the idea of,” if that makes sense?
Any suggestions for girly/unisex names that are more “mountain/forest” and less “flower?”
Thanks!

i think star names! aurora and luna or stella would be lovely

[name_u]Ocean[/name_u]
[name_f]Aubrette[/name_f]
[name_f]Ondine[/name_f]
[name_u]Everest[/name_u]
[name_f]Jordana[/name_f]
[name_f]Leona[/name_f]
[name_f]Ayla[/name_f]

[name_u]Everest[/name_u]
[name_f]Sylvia[/name_f]
[name_f]Opal[/name_f]
[name_u]Indigo[/name_u]
[name_u]Waverly[/name_u]
[name_f]Sapphira[/name_f]
[name_f]Cordelia[/name_f]
[name_f]Paloma[/name_f]
[name_f]Estella[/name_f]
[name_f]Embla[/name_f]

I think [name_f]Autumn[/name_f] is lovely! Her birthday doesn’t really matter, I know many Summer’s who weren’t born in the summer!

Alternatively, maybe:
[name_u]Artemis[/name_u] - due to the huntress association
[name_u]Auburn[/name_u] - the colour feels very autumnal to me!
[name_u]Aster[/name_u] / [name_f]Astra[/name_f] - the meanings are related to stars
[name_f]Aneira[/name_f] - means “much snow”
[name_f]Bryony[/name_f] - maybe too flowery for you, but it’s technically a plant, not a flower, so I though it might work
[name_u]Briar[/name_u] - same as [name_f]Bryony[/name_f]!
[name_f]Bea[/name_f] - sounds the same as “bee” and brings to mind spring
[name_f]Camellia[/name_f] - a flower, but I think the sound is maybe majestic enough!
[name_f]Celeste[/name_f] / [name_f]Celestia[/name_f] / [name_f]Celestine[/name_f] - reminds me of “celestial” and brings to mind a night sky
[name_u]Cypress[/name_u] - after the trees
[name_f]Dahlia[/name_f] - again, a flower name but maybe elegant-sounding enough to work!
[name_f]Dianthe[/name_f] - means “divine flower”
[name_u]Dove[/name_u] - after the bird
[name_f]Delphine[/name_f] - reminds me of dolphins, but also delphiniums, the scientific name for larkspur flowers!
[name_f]Evanthe[/name_f] - means “fair flower”
[name_f]Eira[/name_f] - means “snow”
[name_f]Estelle[/name_f] - means “star”
[name_f]Flora[/name_f] - doesn’t get more naturey than this!
[name_u]Florence[/name_u] - similar to [name_f]Flora[/name_f], though the nature connection is less obvious
[name_f]Fauna[/name_f] - again, a similar idea
[name_f]Fawn[/name_f] - a gentle animal name with a beautiful pine forest image
[name_u]Fern[/name_u] - plant name
[name_f]Gwyneira[/name_f] - means “white snow”
[name_u]Indigo[/name_u] - brings to mind a lot of blue things in nature, from indigo skies to dark purple flowers
[name_u]Juniper[/name_u] - after the tree
[name_f]Leonora[/name_f] / [name_f]Leonie[/name_f] / [name_f]Leona[/name_f] / [name_f]Leonor[/name_f] / [name_f]Leonore[/name_f] - the lion association!
[name_f]Lavender[/name_f] - a flower name but one that I think is a lot less dainty than others!
[name_f]Linnea[/name_f] - means linden tree or twinflower
[name_u]Linden[/name_u] - after the tree
[name_f]Louisa[/name_f] - another name for lemon verbena herbs
[name_u]Laurel[/name_u] - after the plant & herb
[name_f]Lilac[/name_f] - A flower, but also a colour that brings great nature imagery to mind
[name_f]Lumi[/name_f] - the Finnish word for “snow”
[name_f]Marina[/name_f] - makes me think of beautiful seas and harbours!
[name_f]Maren[/name_f] - means “sea”
[name_f]Mira[/name_f] - means “ocean”
[name_f]Meadow[/name_f] - self-explanatory
[name_f]Olympia[/name_f] - reminds me of mountains à la Mount [name_m]Olympus[/name_m]
[name_f]Olive[/name_f] - olive trees
[name_f]Opal[/name_f] - the gemstone
[name_f]Ostara[/name_f] - after the ancient holiday of the autumnal harvest & it means “dawn” just like [name_f]Aurora[/name_f]
[name_f]Oriana[/name_f] - also means “dawn”
[name_f]Persephone[/name_f] - a name related to the changing of seasons and especially spring
[name_u]Peregrine[/name_u] - like a peregrine falcon
[name_u]Palmer[/name_u] - like palm trees
[name_f]Paloma[/name_f] - means “dove”

[name_f]Scarlett[/name_f]
[name_f]Stella[/name_f]

[name_f]Aurora[/name_f] is so lovely!

I do not think a baby born in [name_u]February[/name_u] is excluded from being [name_f]Autumn[/name_f]. [name_f]Autumn[/name_f] is my favorite season. That’s reason enough for me. I know a sibset of three girls named [name_f]Aurora[/name_f], [name_f]Autumn[/name_f], and [name_f]Ava[/name_f].

[name_f]Aurora[/name_f] and
[name_f]Elowen[/name_f] [name_u]Cypress[/name_u], [name_f]Meadow[/name_f], [name_u]Willow[/name_u], [name_u]Laken[/name_u], [name_u]Arden[/name_u], [name_u]Sky[/name_u], [name_u]Laurel[/name_u], [name_f]Ayla[/name_f], Lindall, [name_u]Rowan[/name_u]

[name_u]Winter[/name_u] or [name_f]Amethyst[/name_f] -nature-ish for a [name_u]February[/name_u] baby.

I love [name_f]Aurora[/name_f] for the exact feelings you’re mentioning.

A favourite name with [name_f]Aurora[/name_f] that evokes nature similarly for me is [name_u]Willoughby[/name_u]. It shares the elegant beauty of [name_f]Aurora[/name_f], and makes me think of willows.

I feel like [name_u]Juniper[/name_u] also fits well. It is both nature/tree and an established name. It feels slightly unisex and goes well with [name_f]Aurora[/name_f]. I also always think of [name_u]Juno[/name_u] as a nature adjacent name, reminds me of [name_u]June[/name_u] and [name_u]Juniper[/name_u]. [name_f]Aurora[/name_f] and [name_u]Juno[/name_u] are darling.

A bit of a wild card idea is [name_u]Brighton[/name_u]. It always feels natural and wordy to me, because of the [name_u]Bright[/name_u]- part. [name_f]Aurora[/name_f] and [name_u]Brighton[/name_u] are amazing.

And a few more random ideas that evoke nature, or are spin offs of nature words: [name_u]Brooks[/name_u], [name_f]Jada[/name_f], [name_u]Oakley[/name_u] and [name_f]Raina[/name_f]. [name_u]Brooks[/name_u] and [name_u]Oakley[/name_u] feelvm very foresty. [name_f]Jada[/name_f] is maybe the least natural of all, but I like the jade connection and [name_u]Jade[/name_u] as a nickname. [name_f]Aurora[/name_f] and [name_f]Raina[/name_f] are beautiful.
