Nature names disguised

Hello :slight_smile:

Looking for names with nature themed meanings, but disguised as traditional names.

Examples:
[name_f]Esther[/name_f] means ‘star’
[name_f]Sylvie[/name_f]/Sylvia means ‘from the forrest’
[name_f]Margaret[/name_f] means ‘sea pearl’

What else?

Thanks :slight_smile:
