Flower names for babies were first popular around the turn of the last century and have started to bloom again as modern baby names, with flower names Lily, Violet, Jasmine, and Rose ranking among the top names for girls.

Along with Lily and Rose, other flower names in the US Top 1000 include Briar, Dahlia, Daisy, Holly, Iris, Ivy, Magnolia, and Poppy. Other stylish names with floral meanings include Leilani, Flora, Linnea, and Romy.

Flower names that work for baby girls range from the exotic from Amaryllis to Zinnia to the everyday, such as Daisy, Clover, and Marigold. There are even a few flower names for baby boys, such as Florian and Peregrine.

Flower baby names can suit every taste and sensibility, from the vintage to the modern, the unique to the familiar. Here, a large collection of flower names for baby girls and boys.
