    Natural Names

    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.

    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.
