I’ve written about quite a few nature names here – that means that you’ve requested quite a few! Here’s a quick round-up of some of them.
A is for the tailored floral Aven, the calendar girl Avril and the sea-worthy Anemone
B is for the literary Bryony and the breezy Brisa, plus the British Basil
C is for the spunky Clover and the refined Calla
D is for Dove and Dahlia
E is for the majestic Everest
F is for the flashy Fuschia and the reserved Fern, plus the pan-botanical Florence and Flora
G is for Gemma
H is for Heath
I is for Iris
J is for Jessamine, Juniper and Jade, plus the not-just-for-vampires Jasper
K is for Katrina – but only if a name mostly famous as a hurricane counts
L is for the modern, avian Lark, the gently antique Linnea, and the bewitching Luna
M is for Meadow, Marigold, and Magnolia
N is for Noor
P is for the ladylike Pearl and the intriguing Pomeline
Q is for …
R is for Rowan and all of the Rose names
S is for a set from the sky: the Latin Stella, the French Soleil and the Welsh Seren, plus the exotic Saffron and the weighty Sterling
T is for Topaz
U is for Ursula
W is for Wren
X is for …
Y is for Yvaine (She’s not exactly a nature name, but there’s a link.)
Z is for Zinnia and Zora
Are there any on this list that you would use? Are there any that I’ve overlooked?
X is for… Xia — in Chinese it means “Summer” or “Rosy Clouds”
A is for Alden!
I admit botanical names are my obession. Some on my list are Amarathe, Cleome, Mariposa, Ginger, Lunaria, Sorrel, and Zinnia.
Sorrel is a new favorite of mine! And Amarathe is gorgeous.
The mythology section of Wikipedia article on Amaranth just sold me on the name. Such a cool meaning! But I couldn’t get the husband to even think about Amaryllis so I can guess that Amaranth would get nixed. Sorrel doesn’t need a reason; it’s just cool being itself. I forgot Artemisia which is part of the Latin name for Wormwood which is used to make Absinthe and is the name of a daring female painter during the Renaissance. I also like how Ambrosia is another name for rag weed. Okay, I’m stopping. LOL
I am not sure if these are nature names but here is my list:
V=Vivienne or Valerie
X=Xynia or Xynthia or even Xynette
Y= Yasmin or Ylena
Z=Zyneth or Zylie
I like: Dahlia, Flora, Luna, Katrina, Magnolia, Rose/Rosalind/Rosita, etc, and Ursula.
A= Azalea, Acacia, Amber
D= Daisy, Daphne
W is for Willow!!
More: Olive/Olivia/Oliver, Cherry, Glen, Craig, Lea, Brooke, River, Cliff…
They would never fly with my other half, but I really love Dove and Fern. Dahlia, Flora and Linnea are all on my list (which gets longer every day.)
I accept your challenge and humbly submit the list below:
C = Clementine
D = Daisy
H = Heather, Holly
J = Jewel
L = Lily, Lake
P = Plum
R = Ruby
S = Sunny, Star
Y- Yarrow, Yollanda
Quince! You’re right. I was stumped for a Q name.
I like Yarrow as well is its Latin name, Achillea. The plant has such a cool mythological background.
I really like Fern and Juniper! So love Clover, but too much like the brand of butter here in the UK!
Wow! Great list! Others you wrote about: Vesper, Estelle, Hazel, Marina, Mavis, and Poppy.
Eva, you’re right! I need to do update my tags and categories …
Calla! Love it.
