20 plant-inspired baby names you’ve probably never heard of

It’s been announced today that Pippa Middleton has named her newborn daughter Rose.

The 38-year-old sister of Kate Middleton already has two children, Arthur (3) and Grace (1) with millionaire husband James Matthews.

Nature is perhaps on the mother’s mind as it’s also emerged she also  plans to develop her 77 acre farm in a similar manner to Jeremy Clarkston’s Diddly Squat farm with plans for glamping, a farm shop and a restaurant.

It looks as if baby names after florals are back after a brief hiatus in which other nature names emerged like Ivy, River and Rain.

We’ve put together a list of whimsical, memorable baby names perfect for your little bud.

Acacia

In Greek, this name means “thorny.”

This name takes after an evergreen that blooms yellow flowers.

This flowery name comes from the feathery-fronded plant that enjoys the shade.

Zinnia

Cool and edgy, Zinnia is of Latin origin, and the zinnia flower symbolizes remembrance. Roald Dahl knows a good name when he sees it—Zinnia Wormwood is the mother of Matilda in his famous novel of the same name; though she has a questionable personality, her name is pretty cool.
