Flower Names for Girls: Pretty Floral Names

Flower baby names have been growing increasingly popular in recent years. This trend was big at the turn of the last century, and along with other vintage names, flower names are flourishing again. These names are feminine and pretty, depicting fresh life and natural beauty.

Names like Rose, Violet, and Lily are commonly known and well loved. Heather has become such a well-known name that we rarely associate it with its floral origin. Iris is on many family trees, and suffered under the label of “old lady name” until the trendy Jude Law and Sadie Frost chose it for their darling daughter.

Jamie Oliver (known as The Naked Chef) and his wife Juliette opted for cute flower names for their daughters. They named their first girl Poppy Honey, their second Daisy Boo.

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt took a less direct approach for their daughter Zahara, a Hebrew name that means flower. Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise took the same path, naming their daughter Suri, the Persian name for rose.

If you want a floral name that feels strong and confident, Hazel, Bryony, and Garland are very cool options. If you’re looking for something soft yet uncommon, consider Fleur, Calla, or Camellia.

Primrose is an adorable name that will undoubtedly be rising in popularity due to The Hunger Games book series. Ivy, used by Beyonce, will also be rising in the charts.

Less known names that are no less pretty are Posey, Tulip, and Lavender. If these frighten you as a first name, give them a try as a middle name.
