Nature themed middles

I am not pregnant yet, but have recently started thinking about trying. So, I am obsessing over names. I’ve had the first name [name]Rowan[/name] picked out for a daughter for years now, so that won’t change. I think I have a boy’s name picked too, [name]Morgan[/name]. But I am completely lost when it comes to middle names. I’m not really close to any family, so I’m not using a family name. I really love nature and word names like [name]Harbor[/name], [name]Cove[/name], [name]Marigold[/name], [name]Linden[/name], [name]Bay[/name], etc. but it seems like I keep pouring over the same lists. Does anyone have any original, strange nature or word names?



[name]Sequoia[/name] (I love [name]Rowan[/name] [name]Sequoia[/name]!)
[name]Marina[/name] (“from the sea”)
[name]Luna[/name] (“moon”)
[name]Soleil[/name] (prn. so-[name]LAY[/name] “sun”)
[name]Kaia[/name] (“earth”)
[name]Marea[/name] (“tide”)
[name]Kalindi[/name] (“sun”)
[name]Avani[/name] (“earth”)
[name]Zorah[/name] (“golden dawn”)
[name]Jemima[/name] (“dove”)
[name]Kiona[/name] (“brown kills”)

[name]Kai[/name] (“sea”, “willow tree”, “earth”, and a host of other meanings)
[name]Arbor[/name] (one of my favorites)
[name]Perrin[/name] (“rock”)
[name]Oren[/name] (“pine tree”)

I was going through one of my mom’s flower books and I found a couple I’ve never heard as names before, what do you think?


In principle, I should like longer flower names. Somehow, though, they seem less substantial than the shorter ones. I should like [name]Marigold[/name] and [name]Primrose[/name], [name]Bluebell[/name] and [name]Buttercup[/name]… I should’ve thought of Sunflower, but I don’t like your others. Maybe it’s that the examples I said are compound words or sound like them, because I don’t have the same reaction to [name]Hyacinth[/name], [name]Lavender[/name] or [name]Amaryllis[/name].
