Nameberry’s predictions for  baby names 2013:

Freshest Botanical Names: Wildflowers

Baby namers have started to turn from cultivated gardens and look to the fields where flowers grow wild. Hottest of these at the moment are Clover and Poppy, along with uncultivated tree names Juniper and Maple. For the adventurous, there are choices like Thistle, Dandelion, and Buttercup. The herbal names from The Hunger Games are also influential, but more Rue and Primrose and less Katniss.
