Fall Foliage Names: Colorful choices from Aspen to Zinnia
The Japanese and Fall-Blooming Anemone are autumn flowers that retain a spring-like palette of pink, white and pale purple in contrast to the deeper tones of other seasonal flowers. Anemone is a Greek nymph name that’s beginning to pop at the most extreme edge of the appellation garden, along with Azalea and Amaryllis.

Marigold and Juniper are two of my favorite names! So glad to see them on this lovely list.

I like Ash, Birch, Aspen, Maple, Hazel, and Juniper but wouldn’t use them. I have Marigold is one my list and Sage is on my sister’s.

Such a lovely post and gorgeous images!!
My favourites are:
Sage (I love this as a middle name for a boy combinations like Jasper Sage are great)

I’m Amazed you could overlook “Autumn” itself. I think it’s one of the most beautiful words in the English language – and while I’m never sure if a bit /too/ artsy to inflict on a real child, I would be permanently tempted.

I’ve like Aster for a couple of years now, so I’m glad to see if spotlighted here. I don’t know that Aspen is that rare, since I’ve met at least one at work.
@Fox: I’ve met a little Autumn and she was just the cutest. I was skeptical when I first hear people were using it as a name, but it does work on a real child.

I like Lily and Hazel. Juniper I quite like too, it reminds me of the song ‘Jennifer Juniper’ that my dad used to play for me when I was younger (yes, I am one of those many Jennifers from the late 70s). I could never name my child Marigold though, as in British English ‘Marigolds’ are what we call those yellow rubber gloves used for washing dishes 🙂

This post is just wonderful. The pictures are gorgeous and the topic is so whimsical and lovely. Way to nail it, Nameberry!
I like Hazel, Aster, Juniper, Lily and Maple, and I would like to see Ash and Sage on someone else’s kids.
Although I love the flower anemones, the first thing that comes to mind when I hear that word are the little sea creatures that look like a flower but close up when you touch them. I spent a lot of time poking them at the aquarium as a kid… I don’t think it’s in the realm of reality, honestly.

The photo on Juniper is NOT of a juniper tree. Why not?
I love most of these, especially Hazel (my niece’s name!).

I love Maple, Hazel and Sage.

I love Hazel (always have since I was little), Juniper, Lily, Maple, Sage, and Zinnia. I like the name Marigold but it makes me think of an old lady, not a little girl, i’m not sure why.
