Hey, Ivy. Hey, Robin. Spring is shortly about to spring up, but despite the chilly weather, nature’s proud displays have inspired us to compile the cutest baby names for your impending spring 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 babe 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 last spring right out of the water! (Hear that, Bear?)
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.

1. Poppy – after the cheerful red flower.
2. Claire – after the French word for “bright and clear”.
