    Rare Nature Words/Names

    So I have this deep interest in nature names. I love some of the ones we see around everywhere (Rose, Aurora, Sterling, River etc). I also love some more unusual nature names (Star, Koa, Oaks, Zephyr etc). But the category that I’m am especially intrigued by recently is rare nature names and words that can be used as baby names. To give you an idea of what I’m talking about, these are some names/words I have discovered recently, that I feel fall into this category.

    Alpenglow
    Bryluen
    Cerulean
    Drumlin
    Esker
    Fen
    Jadeite
    Kyanite
    Marram
    Mazarine
    Moonglade
    Moonwake
    Silverberry
    Tamarack
    Tamarisk
    Tourmaline
    Winterberry
    Wulfram

    So I am coming to you for any more ideas that would fit into this category of names. Preferably rare nature words and names, that we do not hear or use alot in common usage. It also can be nature words in another language besides English. Any ideas anyone?

    Also feel free to comment on the above list, whether you think the names are usable IRL, etc. Unfortunately though, most will never be a reality for me as my SO will veto names he’s never heard pretty quickly, but I’m still so in love with this style!

    You mentioned some names of gemstone, so if that counts as nature themed then I love Alexandrite and Obsidian as names too!

    @aldridge I maybe have a fairly loose definition of nature names, so yes I count gemstones! Obsidian is so awesome.

    @greyblue I love Redwood! I had never considered that one as a name before, but I love tree and foresty names so it fits right in to my style.

    @elifsu Lunaria and Larimar! What wonderful names, I had never heard of them before but I looked them up and they seem both usable and stunning.
    And please feel free to share any more great finds you make in the future .
