Outdoorsy/woodsy girl names

I’m really into boy names right now that feel earthy and woodsy - the kind of names that smell of campfire, fresh-cut pine, and damp moss. I’d like to add some girl names to my list that fit the same general aesthetic. [name_m]Can[/name_m] you recommend me any of your favourite outdoorsy girl names?

Examples of boy names that evoke this imagery for me include [name_m]Magnus[/name_m], [name_u]Rowan[/name_u], [name_m]Orson[/name_m], [name_m]Otso[/name_m], [name_u]Robin[/name_u], [name_u]Roscoe[/name_u], [name_u]Atlas[/name_u], and [name_m]Ferris[/name_m].

@firefly305 More rugged rather than flowery is definitely what I had in mind! These suggestions are all lovely - my favourites are [name_f]Scarlett[/name_f] “Scout”, [name_u]Ember[/name_u], [name_f]Heather[/name_f], [name_f]Maren[/name_f], [name_f]Runa[/name_f], and [name_u]Fern[/name_u]. :heart: :evergreen_tree:

@Greyblue [name_f]Morven[/name_f] is a new one for me and I absolutely love it! [name_f]My[/name_f] other favourites from your suggestions are [name_u]Kestrel[/name_u], [name_f]Mabli[/name_f], [name_u]Hazel[/name_u], and [name_f]Rowena[/name_f] - there’s something very intriguing about [name_u]Kestrel[/name_u] especially.

Thank you both. :slightly_smiling_face:

@krijesnica Oh, [name_f]Ronja[/name_f] is absolutely perfect! [name_f]Ronja[/name_f] the Robber’s Daughter is like the poster child for this aesthetic now that I think about it. I’m also loving [name_u]Auburn[/name_u], [name_f]Bruna[/name_f], [name_f]Sylvie[/name_f], and [name_f]Maple[/name_f]. :maple_leaf: [name_f]Bruna[/name_f] might be my overall favourite - it sounds particularly woodsy and lovely to me today.

@westem All of these fit the vibe I’m going for so well - I love [name_u]Scout[/name_u], [name_f]Maren[/name_f], and [name_u]Oakley[/name_u]. [name_u]Oakley[/name_u] on a girl makes me think of [name_f]Annie[/name_f] [name_u]Oakley[/name_u] and that’s just perfection.

@EdgeOfTheMeadow :heart_eyes: I don’t even know where to begin - there are so many wonderful suggestions here and a fair few names that are completely new to me that I can’t wait to look into! The ones jumping out at me right away are [name_f]Rufina[/name_f], Carraway, [name_f]Quenby[/name_f], [name_f]Lowenna[/name_f] and [name_f]Ylva[/name_f]. Out of the more delicate names [name_u]Loxley[/name_u] and [name_u]Waverly[/name_u] are also catching my eye.

@Harvest-Endellion I haven’t heard of [name_f]Shasta[/name_f] before - I really like that it’s simple and down to earth yet unique. [name_f]Shasta[/name_f] [name_u]Fjord[/name_u] actually sounds like a great combo to me. :mount_fuji:

@columbiacharm [name_f]Tove[/name_f] is a long term favourite of mine and I hadn’t really thought about it from this angle - it absolutely fits this aesthetic though! I also adore [name_f]Finja[/name_f], Madga, [name_u]Odell[/name_u], Urska, and [name_f]Wilda[/name_f]. :green_heart: There’s something about [name_f]Wilda[/name_f] especially that’s capturing my imagination.

@river_dweller I agree, [name_u]Atlas[/name_u] on a girl is lovely! I remember seeing a birth announcement for an [name_u]Atlas[/name_u] [name_f]Rose[/name_f] a while back - the combo has stayed with me because it sounds so effortlessly cool. [name_f]My[/name_f] favourites from your suggestions are [name_f]Roxie[/name_f], [name_f]Misty[/name_f], [name_u]Andy[/name_u], [name_f]Starla[/name_f], [name_u]Raven[/name_u], [name_m]Ravine[/name_m], [name_f]Eartha[/name_f] and [name_f]Timberly[/name_f]. I’m especially crushing on [name_f]Timberly[/name_f] now - it’s perfectly quirky and fun. :wood:

@18_25 [name_f]Glenda[/name_f] hasn’t been on my radar at all but I actually love it - it has that clunky cool feel to it that makes it sound earthy and adventurous. I also love [name_f]Heather[/name_f] and [name_m]Ashe[/name_m]. :heart:

Thanks all!
