What are your favourite nature names they can be plants, animals, gems, minerals, places, geological features etc.
However the name has to be usable I live in a small town in Ireland, so nothing too hippy-ish or out there. My last name is in my user name. :)
my nature favorites for boys are:
Sage (i prefer it on a girl, though)
Lark / Larkin
Heath and Moss (classically a diminutive for Moses rather than a plant name but I like it for being both) are my most favourite. Followed by Hawthorn, Rowan, and Jasper as some of my favourites.
Animal names are hard without getting quirky. I like Fox, Hart, and Wolf but they are all a bit out-there, though one of those is my 25-year-old brother's middle name and he's always liked it.
The only way I can think of to do animal references without being less than classical is do meanings: Leon, Ari, Caleb, Callum, Ronan, Oisin etc.

Ocean, although it is probably too far out for you. Harbour. Prairie. Pine. Cedar. Bay, although I like it in the middle best. Field.
There might be some nature words used more in Ireland than here in the states. You could get out a map and think it over. Maybe something will strike you.
