Tree Names for Babies
by Pamela Redmond
Tree baby names are a new branch of the nature names growing in popularity. They convey roots and strength of character—qualities we want our children to possess—and many carry a bohemian vibe, such as Willow and Juniper.
Along with Willow and Juniper, other tree names for babies that make the US Top 1000 include Aspen, Olive, Hazel, Laurel, Koa, Magnolia, Forrest, and Oakley. Unique tree names we're hearing more of include Ash, Birch, Linden, and Maple.
