How to Choose the Perfect Flower Name

There are so many names to choose from, so where should you start? Here are a couple of tips that may aid you in your decision.

When Is Your Due Date?

You can choose a flower name based on the time of the year to coincide with their potential birthday. For example, Azaleas and Heather are spring blooms. You can also look up your baby’s birth flower of their birthday month. April’s birth flowers include Hawthorne, and Poppy for August.

Does a Certain Flower Mean Something to You?

Whether it’s your favorite flower, or a special family member’s favorite, choosing that as a name could bring extra significance to you. My mother loves lilacs; they have always been her favorite flower. She means a great deal to me, so I might consider Lilac as a first or middle name if I were having a daughter.

Are You Looking For a Trendy Flower Name?

If popularity means something to you, then you have some great options. Lily-Rose Depp, the daughter of the actor Johnny Depp, has a great combination floral name. Of course, there is Beyonce’s daughter Blue Ivy Carter. You can even go fictional and choose Jasmine from Aladdin if she is your favorite Disney princess.

Are You All About the Meanings?

Sometimes, we are more focused on what a name represents rather than what it actually is. Significant meanings or symbols can be a huge reason why you choose the name that you choose. Are you more religious? A name that can be found in the bible might be of more importance to you, such as Acacia for a girl. Alder could be a great name for a boy as it is unique, and the alder tree represents strength.
