Bird Names for Babies

Bird names.jpg?ixlib=rails 3.0

Bird names for babies are one of the hottest of the hot nature categories, all the way from Birdie to Wren. Bird names can work as unique first names or meaningful middle names and are appropriate for both girls and boys. While many bird names come straight out and announce themselves, as Robin or Hawk, others are more subtle, carrying bird meanings: Paloma, for instance, means dove.

Along with Paloma and Wren, other bird baby names in the US Top 1000 include Arden, Ava, Callum, Gavin, Jay, Jonas, Mavis, and Robin. Up-and-coming bird names to listen for include Adler, Astor, Dove, and Lark.

If you love nature names and animal names, you may want to search more deeply into the new genre of bird names for babies.
