please hit me with feminine/nature-y/unique girl names!

post #1 of 67
Thread Starter 
Ack! I am sooo stuck for names, completely lost! I really for some odd reason just can't seem to find anything that I like. We're having a girl, and I love pretty-sounding feminine names (such as names that end in 'a'), love nature-inspired, and not-too-popular. Does anyone have any suggestions for me??
TIA!!

I knew a girl named Autumn - not ending with an a, though. Ava, Avalon, Fauna, Hazel, Gardenia, Azalea, Sylvia (an ancient nature goddess), Camilla or Camellia (LOVE that one..), Dahlia, Lilly, Skyla, Wren, Robin, Calla, Jasmine, Olivia, Aurora, Tara, Sierra, Maya (that one's picked out for my first daughter - lol) ...

That was fun Good luck!

I once knew a really lovely woman named Terra (which means Earth). Very pretty name, but with strength to it -- not too flowery.

I have a dear friend named Torreya. People always think it's short for Victoria, but it's not. Her parents are biologists. It's the latin name for a genus of pine trees. Try looking in a botany textbook for more names like that.

Other ones I can think of that are pretty-sounding feminine names (such as names that end in 'a'), nature-inspired, and not-too-popular.
Laurel (tree)
Mica (a kind of mineral), other gems: Ruby, Pearl, Sapphire, etc.
Aurora (dawn)
Iris, Daisy, Gardenia, Magnolia, Holly...flower names
Cedar, Aspen, Cypress...tree names
Delphine/Delfina (dolphin)
Marina, River, Brooke, Rain...water names
Byrdie, Robin, Lark, Wren, Raven...bird names

I love the name Daisy. I'm not sure if I could bring myself to name a baby Daisy (I worry that it wouldn't wear well in north america as a child grew up), but it's a short form for Margaret. I've been thinking about Margaret properly, and Daisy for short.

What about Poppy? I love this name! And Papaya, it's uncommon, but if put to the right little face would be awesome!
