Outdoorsy girl names can’t be tamed, and for that, we adore them. A touch wilder than everyday nature names for girls, these monikers are meant to play in the mud and experience everything life has to offer. Let’s check out some of our favorite outdoorsy names for girls together.

Scout is our all-time pick amongst outdoorsy baby girl names. A word name with endless energy, she’s a confident little girl with the wind in her sails. She’s ready for any obstacle, whether it’s a log on the trail or a mountain to climb. Scout also has impressive literary ties thanks to To Kill a Mockingbird, making her an all-around excellent pick. Outdoorsy girl names similar to Scout are Sailor and Sawyer.

Many outdoorsy girl names are rugged like the wilderness itself, including Timber. Pertaining to wood, Timber is reminiscent of the classic Kimberly yet stands tall on her own. She’s a modern moniker with grit, wearing well on any little one with a love of nature. You could check out Oakley, too, a tree-themed name once worn by the famed sharpshooter, Annie Oakley. Other rugged nature names for girls are Aspen, Maple, and Fern.

Some picks within this genre are what we call cute outdoorsy girl names. They’re a little softer than previous names we mentioned and work well for an artistic little one. Prairie is one of our favorites. Less common than her terrain-friend Savanna/Savannah, Prairie is relatively nickname-proof and adorable. Similarly, there’s Valley, who might honor a special Valerie in your life. We love her modern yet organic sound. Other cute outdoorsy names are Ember, Poppy, and Calla.

Some of us shy away from names that feel too out of the box, but outdoorsy names for girls are more common than you’d think. Just look at Luna. This bright “moon” shines brightly high up on the name charts. Her botanical friends Hazel and Lily keep her company along with Willow and Ivy. Or what about Aurora, as in the “goddess of dawn?”

Whether you’re looking for something bold or a subtle sweetheart, we hope you find the perfect pick for your natural baby in outdoorsy names for girls.
