Floral names instill an inescapable image of natural elegance far more powerful than any hidden meaning. While baby girl flower names are seemingly dainty, they’re also bold and brave, unapologetic in their embracing of Mother Nature and her offerings. From the well-known Rose to the unique Fleur, flower names for girls come in all shapes and sizes.

Flower names for girls may seem like a new trend, but parents have been loving floral girl names for centuries. If we check the history books, we see plenty of flowery women dotting the pages, from Australian women’s rights activist Rose Scott to author and poet, Violet Tweedale. While there are vintage darlings like Lily and Daisy coming back around, there are still plenty of flower names for girls with a modern edge like Zinnia and Calla.

Of course, baby girl flower names do seem soft at a glance, but they are hardly delicate. Flower names for girls won’t overshadow natural talent or achievements. Look at Lily Parr. She was a professional English women’s football star way back in the early 1900s when women weren’t often seen in such roles.
