Maple Origin and Meaning

The name Maple is a girl's name meaning "piece of cloth".

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 choice by the Jason Batemans — who combined it with the sweet middle name Sylvie — will only accelerate that growth.

I named my daughter Maple (Edith). I still love it . It’s nostalgic and warm and simple. We call her Maple Bacon while she’s still little.

Sp25629 Says:


i like this name but i more prefer Mable because i feel like when people say her name they will say maple syrup but no offence too anyone who has this name because its a beautiful name

Skittlewiddles Says:


My sister and I thought of this beautiful word name when we were kids and everyone else thought it was too outlandish. As adults, we still think it would be lovely on a baby girl.

Susette Says:


C'mon people...Maple trees are beautiful, maple syryp is sweet. But the name Maple for a little girl is neither beautiful nor sweet. Sounds like a hillbilly name.

Carolinekalmes Says:


There's something I really like about this name, but I don't think I could actually ever name a child Maple. At most a middle name, but likely more an animal name for me.

Rebecca Says:


That's my daughter and it fits her perfectly. Not everyone's taste I guess.

paulapuddephatt Says:


Kind of cute. It sounds similar to Mabel, and is also a nature name.

Dalmatians101 Says:


I mean, its pretty but I can't imagine someone with that name. Imagine at her mariage ''Maple would you take Steven's hand?'' Doesn't sound that good after all.

autumnreverie Says:


I think of the beautiful trees and yummy syrup.

Haids1987 Says:


I kind of like this. My hometown is Maple Valley, though, so it's kind of a nod to home.

little_me Says:


My neighbours have a cat named Maple. They also have Genie, Mysty, caramello, Minx, Scoobi and a couple more whose names I forget; however, they all have names beginning with M.

TaliaCat Says:


Yeah, better for a puppy than a human

JessicaRK467 Says:


Someone named their daughter Maple Darling? That's so sweet it makes my teeth hurt...cringeworthy

esita Says:


I named my beautiful Golden retriever puppy Maple. It is perfect for her.

clairelaliberte Says:


This would be a cool middle name as I grew up on Maple Street.

Bobcat108 Says:


Some word names work as names, but IMO this one doesn't, & the look of it isn't feminine to me at all. And the teasing potential is way too high between the association w/syrup & the "ape" sound in maple.

mabespark Says:


I think that this is really a very pretty and unique name - more modern and trendy-sounding than Mabel, (my name c:) but not overly kre8tive or OTT.

CocoWhite Says:


When I hear Maple, I don't think tree; I think syrup.
