Thistle and other unusual nature names

Thistle, [name_m]Thorn[/name_m], and [name_f]Tansy[/name_f] are GP names of mine and I was wondering what other unusual nature names y’all like, GP, strictly middles, or not and what genders you like them best on

I heard [name_u]Cypress[/name_u] on a little boy once and loved it, I saw a reality show once with a father called [name_m]Thorn[/name_m] and his daughter [name_u]Briar[/name_u] and there was a berry I remember that used [name_u]Nightingale[/name_u] as a middle name for their child.

Not technically nature, but the same vibe:

Snow is one of my very favorite nature names. I would love to use it in the future, but I don’t know if I’m courageous enough to do so. haha I also enjoy [name_u]Sparrow[/name_u], [name_u]Dove[/name_u], [name_u]Rue[/name_u], [name_f]Fawn[/name_f], and [name_m]Talon[/name_m]. There are others, but these are the less common ones I like. For me, [name_u]Snow[/name_u], [name_u]Dove[/name_u], [name_u]Rue[/name_u], and [name_f]Fawn[/name_f] are definitely feminine. I can see [name_u]Sparrow[/name_u] going either way, although it leans slightly feminine for me.[name_m]Talon[/name_m] always sounds very masculine.

I love [name_u]Snow[/name_u] as a middle, a berry named her daughter [name_f]Thea[/name_f] [name_u]Snow[/name_u] a while ago and i still find it so beautiful.

Sparrow, [name_u]Dove[/name_u], [name_u]Solstice[/name_u], and [name_f]Maple[/name_f] are on my middle name list, all for girls but [name_u]Sparrow[/name_u] and [name_u]Solstice[/name_u] could be unisex imo.

I also love the idea of [name_u]Evergreen[/name_u] on a girl


Ffion for girls.
[name_u]Heron[/name_u] for boys.

I know a girl with the middle name [name_f]Sunshine[/name_f] and I’ve always loved that

Lets see…
[name_u]Aspen[/name_u] (b/g)
[name_f]Cinnamon[/name_f] (g)
[name_u]Ember[/name_u] (g)
[name_f]Emerald[/name_f] (g)
[name_f]Fawn[/name_f] (g)
[name_m]Heath[/name_m] (m)

[name_u]Red[/name_u] (b)

[name_u]Teal[/name_u] (g)

I’ve had [name_u]Thistle[/name_u] on my list for years! And [name_u]Cypress[/name_u] is a recent love of mine!

[name_u]Skylark[/name_u] (type of bird)
