Gender: F Origin of Maple: Tree name

If Apple and Juniper, Oak and Pine can be baby names, why not Maple? Why not indeed. We've heard Maple starting to be used quietly, but with its lush sound and attractive image, we predict its use as a first name will grow — and its recent choice by the Jason Batemans — who combined it with the sweet middle name Sylvie — will only accelerate that growth.
