'New' Nature Names

Probably not new to Nameberry's svelte baby name experts, but some usable nature names I haven't seen catch fire yet.
  1. Echo
    • Origin:

      Greek mythology name
    • Meaning:

      "echo or sound"
    • Description:

      Echo, the pretty, resonant name of a legendary nymph, was the heroine of Joss Whedon's sci-fi series Dollhouse. Nick Hexum, of the band 311, named his daughter Echo Love.
  2. Herron
    • Onyx
      • Origin:

        Gem name
      • Description:

        Unlike Pearl and Ruby, this is one gem name suited for boys, the final x making it sound strong and virile. Musician Iggy Azalea chose the name Onyx for her son.
    • Peridot
      • Origin:

        Arabic
      • Meaning:

        "a green gemstone"
      • Description:

        Peridot is the gem of the month of August, a vibrant green mineral, said to be good for helping people put the past behind them, and an interesting, undiscovered jewel name. It was regarded in ancient times as the symbol of the sun.
    • Shade
      • Origin:

        English word name
      • Description:

        Nice sound, but double meaning -- shady glen or shady character.
    • Shale
      • Origin:

        Word name
      • Description:

        Slate, Stone and Steel are on the rise, so why not Shale?
    • Storm
      • Origin:

        Word name
      • Description:

        Windswept and dramatic, but perhaps asking for trouble. Quite popular in Denmark and Sweden, where it derives from Stromr, which is a fairly common surname. Storm Thorgerson is a famous bearer of the name - he designed iconic album covers for Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, the Cranberries, Anthrax, and Pink Floyd.
