When it comes to nature baby names, the floral side is often overlooked for boys. It’s a shame, because these are some of the coolest choices out there. Ranging from occupational finds to literal plant picks, flower names for boys are as diverse as they are stylish. Don’t be fooled into thinking they’re all soft, either, as there are several tough-guy options in their ranks.

Flower names for boys contain actual plant names, of course, like Poppy. These work well with nature name darlings like River and Colt. Moss is a standout in this aspect, as he has botanical chops with an effortlessly cool feel. You can also find names in the group that are parts of a flower, like Leaf. You could also try a flower’s name in another language, like Aciano, the Spanish translation of cornflower. He has a chic feel you can’t help but love.

Not all floral names for boys are obvious, though, with some having a flowery meaning beneath the surface. There’s Fiorello, a handsome Italian pick meaning “little flower.” He’s similar in feel to Giovanni and Leonardo, but he has a rarity that the others can’t compete with. Another all-star is Rhodes, a surname-style choice with the gorgeous meaning of “where roses grow.” He’s an especially clever pick if you’re seeking to honor a Rose with your son’s name.

Flower names for boys may seem to all be as delicate as the flowers they represent, but you’ll be surprised what strength lies among them. Hawthorne is a prime example. He may be the name of a small white flower, but his thorny aspect gives him a rugged feel, while his surname styling gives him prestige. Occupational lovers will delight with Gardener, a flowery find similar in style to Mason.

Whatever your style, there’s a masculine flower name waiting for you.
