Nature Names

Names like: Skye, River, Blossom, Forrest, Olive, Sage, Lily, Iris, Sparrow

What it says about you: Naming your child after one of Mother Nature's many miracles probably means you're a free spirit who appreciates the world around you. Of course, the green movement -- and all of its eco-conscious, recycling, composting parents -- has contributed to the explosion of nature names. "Flower names have moved beyond the sweet Victorian-tinged Rose, Lily, Violet and Daisy to more exotic blooms such as Azalea, Camellia, Lilac, Magnolia and Zinnia," Rosenkrantz says. "Plus there's a whole new flock of bird names like Wren, Lark, Starling, Dove and Hawk." But the eco-movement isn't the only reason for the trend: Many of these nature names -- especially flower names like Rose, Lily and Iris -- are also part of the granny-chic category, and the parents who choose them may be more hipster than hippie.
