What would you name 3 children using botanical and/or animal names?

You can pair an animal or botanical name with another name not in these categories, or use a combination. For example:

Fox [name_m]Emmanuel[/name_m]
[name_u]Laurel[/name_u] [name_f]Acacia[/name_f]
[name_u]Tobin[/name_u] [name_u]Sequoia[/name_u]
[name_f]Rosemary[/name_f] [name_f]Celeste[/name_f]
[name_u]Falcon[/name_u] [name_m]Amias[/name_m]
[name_u]Halcyon[/name_u] [name_f]Anemone[/name_f]
[name_f]Coral[/name_f] [name_f]Eliza[/name_f]

I’d go with:

Tobin [name_u]Sequoia[/name_u]
[name_f]Zinnia[/name_f] [name_f]Charlotte[/name_f]
[name_f]Linnet[/name_f] [name_f]Eglantine[/name_f]

Never thought I’d incorporate [name_f]Eglantine[/name_f], but there it is.

Is [name_u]Ocean[/name_u] botanical or animal?

Oh oops, I thought you said nature and not specifically botanical. [name_f]My[/name_f] bad

Sable [name_u]Laurel[/name_u]
[name_f]Rosemary[/name_f] [name_f]Linnet[/name_f]
[name_u]Lark[/name_u] [name_u]Hyacinth[/name_u]

Boy names aren’t my specialty. :woman_shrugging:

I love botanical names so it would be:
[name_f]Daisy[/name_f] [name_f]Olivia[/name_f]
[name_f]Amelia[/name_f] [name_f]Violet[/name_f]
[name_u]Everett[/name_u] [name_u]Sorrel[/name_u]

And if I had to use an animal name:
[name_f]Daisy[/name_f] [name_f]Amelia[/name_f]
[name_u]Everett[/name_u] [name_u]Sorrel[/name_u]
[name_u]Elias[/name_u] [name_u]Falcon[/name_u]

My top three girl names in general are…

Daisy [name_f]Aviva[/name_f]

Guinevere [name_f]Pearl[/name_f]

Olive [name_f]Bernadette[/name_f]

I already have two botanical & a gemstone! And I also have [name_f]Clementine[/name_f] on my short list. If I were to do three boys, I’m thinking…

Colm [name_u]Phoenix[/name_u]

Finn [name_u]Basil[/name_u]

River [name_u]Koa[/name_u]

Fox, [name_u]Larkspur[/name_u], and [name_u]Peregrine[/name_u]

Mary [name_f]Lavender[/name_f]
[name_f]Eve[/name_f] [name_f]Clementine[/name_f]
[name_u]Joan[/name_u] [name_f]Rosemary[/name_f]

Tamarack [name_u]Fox[/name_u]
[name_u]Sequoia[/name_u] [name_u]Wolf[/name_u]
[name_f]Daffodil[/name_f] [name_f]Otter[/name_f]

Violet
[name_u]Wren[/name_u]
[name_f]Iris[/name_f]

Phoenix
[name_u]Sage[/name_u]
[name_m]Wells[/name_m]

Hmm…
[name_f]Lilia[/name_f] [name_u]Wren[/name_u]
[name_f]Primrose[/name_f] [name_u]Dove[/name_u]
[name_f]Iris[/name_f] [name_u]Lark[/name_u]

Robin [name_u]Foxglove[/name_u]
[name_u]Briar[/name_u] [name_m]Hawk[/name_m]
[name_u]Florian[/name_u] [name_u]Kestrel[/name_u]

This is fun :grinning:
[name_u]Gabriel[/name_u] [name_m]Fraser[/name_m] ( like the fir tree and it also means strawberry)
[name_u]Elias[/name_u] [name_u]Fox[/name_u]
[name_f]Tabitha[/name_f] [name_u]Holly[/name_u]

Assuming usability isn’t a concern… :slightly_smiling_face: :herb:

Hemlock [name_u]Oak[/name_u]
[name_u]Florian[/name_u] [name_u]Birch[/name_u]
[name_u]Basil[/name_u] [name_m]Elwood[/name_m]

Erica Alchemilla*
Rosebay [name_f]Linnea[/name_f]
[name_f]Magnolia[/name_f] [name_f]Fern[/name_f]

*discovered Alchemilla today in Llewellyn’s Complete Book of Names - it’s a herb more commonly known as lady’s mantle. The Latin name comes from the belief that collecting dew from these plants could help in the alchemists’ quest to turn base metals into gold. I find it endearingly clunky.
