Nature names for girls are all the rage as parents seek to unplug from modern trends and tap into Mother Nature. They’re also a way for parents to show their appreciation for natural beauty. That isn’t to say that nature baby girl names are only for hippies, however, as plenty of natural names like Rose and Savannah enjoy widespread appeal and popularity.

Nature inspired girl names have been growing in use over the years with more and more unique options creeping up on the charts. Names like Olive and Sage don’t seem all that out there anymore, ushering in a new wave of options like Gem and Soleil. These names work well with today’s styles but maintain an exotic flair on their own.

Not all nature baby girl names are as obvious in their roots like Delta and Aurora who have more subtle connections to Mother Nature. Such names are a gentle nod without being too over the top for conservative parents. They age well on their wearers and sound distinguished in a crowd but certainly not strange.
