Flowers? Boy Names?
These are two things that might not seem to go together to some people, but these 55 flower inspired boy names are seriously cool!
We actually LOVE the idea of using a flower inspired name for a boy’s first or middle name. With unexpected inspiration, these names are meaningful, whimsical, and interesting to both say and hear, and are well suited for any sweet baby boy and modern mom.
Many of these names are so unique, in fact, that only 9 of the 55 names on this list have ever ranked in the top 1000 baby names in the U.S.
If you love nature inspired baby names or uncommon names, you’ll definitely want to save this list! We have also included a few well-known flower names for boys as well, in case you are looking for something that is inspired by nature but are looking for something a little more traditional.
What are Good Flower Names?
A good flower name will be unique, but still recognizable for a first or middle name. This list is full of names that walk this delicate line.
These are just a few of our favorite names from this list:
Each of these names is both scholarly and strong and isn’t one you’ve heard over and over. Flower inspired boy names strike the perfect balance of beautiful, uncommon and cool!
You could also go with a more popular flower boy’s name, such as Trevor, Jarred, or William, all of which fall inside the Top 1000 baby names for 2018. There are a few others, all noted in italics beside the name.
But in all honestly, lots of the names below could easily be on our huge list of the most handsome boy names as well!
Name Origins and Meaning
Knowing the meaning of a name adds depth to the naming process. And, if you find yourself unable to pick, a name’s meaning can help you be more decisive.
It’s also really fun to tie a name to its origin (the location in the world where the name was created). If you like to travel or your family history is linked to a certain part of the world, you may find that a name from that location is more special to you.
Your children can have a name that tells a story and gives them more meaning and a deeper connection to the world around them in later years!
