Gender: M Origin of Juniper: Tree name

Juniper is a nature name that we really like. While it's trendiest for girls -- over 400 baby girls were named Juniper in 2013 versus fewer than ten boys -- the most notable Juniper in history was the saint Brother Juniper, a follower of Saint Francis renowned for his generosity. Blessed Junipero Serra, who founded the first of the California Missions, took his name from the earlier Saint Juniper.
