    Nature Names in Disguise?

    Rowan's name is perfect in my opinion. It's a nature name that doesn't have that overtly hippie vibe to it like Willow or River. That got me thinking, are there other names like that? I would love to find a name that is directly related to nature/water but isn't obvious. I think Indigo works? But I've had people say it sounds very "granola" Can you think of any names that fit the criteria?
    My cherished daughter, Rowan Jane. ~b. 10/2011~

    Brook comes to mind as water but not obvious. Also, I know its not exactly chic these days, but Heather is definitely a nature name. Laurel is the other one I can think of.

    Rowan isn't really a disguise to me, just a subtle, more obscure tree name. Here are some others...

    Trees
    Hazel
    Laurel
    Holly
    Cassia
    Daphne


    Flowers/vines (subtle ones)
    Jessamine - Carolina Jessamine is a favourite flower of mine.
    Bryony
    Rosemary
    Viola
    Veronica
    Marguerite
    Betony
    Erica
    Cicely
    Iris and Ivy are not subtle really but they are classic, without being as popular as Rose or Lily.

    Gemstone
    Opal
    Coral
    Pearl
    Ruby
    Emerald

    Animals
    Phoebe
    Robin



    Do classic names with nature meanings of other languages count? I'd put forward Susannah, Giselle, Phoebe, Branwen...? But these are maybe TOO subtle to count as nature names?

    I like names that have a nature vibe to them, without being too blatant. I like a lot of the months and seasons, and there's a variety to choose from! May, June, August, Summer, Autumn, Winter, January, April, etc.
