Paying homage to the natural world you love so much is easy with earthy boy names. Rugged and adventurous, these picks have organic appeal. Let’s meet some together.

Many of our favorite earthy baby boy names are those that come directly from the forest, like Forest himself. A classic choice, he’s not too common today, and despite his earthy roots, he’s surprisingly versatile, wearing well on a mischievous child or a polished adult. Amongst the forest’s greenery, you’ll find plenty of other earthy male names, including Alder, Pine, and Fern.

Like the world itself, earthy boy baby names include a diverse range of awe-inspiring places beyond the forest’s edge. There are the soaring heights of Cliff and the secluded specialness of Cove. You can head out west with the might of Canyon or venture toward the sea with Bay. Honor your baby’s gentle nature with Brooks or match his constant motion with the flow of River. The possibilities are endless.

Earthy names for boys aren’t one-size-fits-all, either. Sure, they’re all rooted in nature, but they have different connotations. Jasper is a precious stone with a high-society air to him, while Clay has clawed his way up from the riverbank as a gritty, artistic pick. Basil leans British, while Ranger feels as American as apple pie.

Some of the coolest earthy boy names are those with hidden natural meanings. For instance, Bjorn is a Scandinavian sweetheart meaning “bear,” while Lennox means “many elm trees.” The popular Logan means “small hollow,” and Dylan means “great tide.” One of our favorites here is the Polynesian prince Keanu, who translates to “the breeze.” Such a relaxed meaning perfectly fits a calm baby and will hopefully ring true throughout a little one’s life adventure. Other epic meanings include Aziel’s “flower,” Zevi’s “my wolf,” and Silas’ “man of the forest.”
