30 nature-inspired names perfect for your summer baby

Hey, Ivy. Hey, Robin. Nature’s proud displays have inspired us to compile the cutest baby names for your impending summer baby.


These nature-based monikers are organic, fresh, and, let’s face it, completely adorable (without being too kooky). Springtime has long been a symbol of innocence, purity and fresh beginnings — which is exactly how your tiny one comes into the world.

Derived from trees, flowers and beautiful things created in the natural world, these names are guaranteed to blow the animal baby name trend from a few years back right out of the water! (Hear that, Bear?)

Chaps

 

1. Bud – after Spring’s first display of rebirth.

 

2. Robin – after the sweet and trusting bird.

 

3. Denver – meaning “green valley”.

 

4. Atwell – meaning “lives by a spring “.

 

5. Weldon – meaning “hill near a spring”.

 

6. Bradwell – means “from the broad spring”.

 

 

7. Xavier – meaning “bright”.

 

8. Neville – meaning “new town”.

 

9. Maxwell – after the Scottish word for “Magnus’ spring”.

 

10. River – your little flowing river.

 

11. Byrn – Welsh for hill

 

12. Heath – a devastatingly handsome moor.

 

13. Aster – the Greek word for a star (for your little star).
