    Beyond Rosemary & Rowan – Herbal/Botanical Names?

    I'm looking for some new ideas to add to my nature names list. Given my aromatherapy and herbal medicine studies, I'm really drawn to herbal names, especially the Latin ones, such as Myristica (nutmeg), Piperita (peppermint), and Vivendel (honeysuckle) for girls or Siderion (vervain) and Trillium (nightshade) for boys. In addition to the scientific names for various plants, I'm also interested in unusual botanical word names like Vetiver, Belladonna, Neroli, and Nightshade.

    What I don't want:
    Lily, Rose, and Violet – flower names that are quite common
    Rowan, Hazel, and Willow – don't get me wrong, I love tree names, but I'm looking for fresh new ideas, not the typical suggestions that can be found on every nature name thread.

    Can't wait to hear your woodsy, earthy, flowery choices!
