Conspicuously named hippies I have met.

Some of these were children named by hippy parents, others were hippies who re-named themselves. Some of them are actually pretty common within the subculture.
  1. Aja
    • Origin:

      Spelling variation of Aya or Hindi
    • Meaning:

      "goat"
    • Description:

      Sounds like and is often confused with Asia, though it has an air of retro cool via the seminal Steely Dan album. Or, pronounced eye-ah, it can be an alternate spelling of the international favorite Aya.
  2. Apple
    • Origin:

      English nature name
    • Meaning:

      "apple"
    • Description:

      When people talk about unique baby names, Apple is often one of the first examples they mention. Apple made international headlines when Gwyneth Paltrow chose this wholesome fruit name for her daughter. Many have called it ridiculous, but we have to admit, we find it appealing enough to list as one of our top cute baby names. Rocker Bob Geldof named one of his daughters Peaches; Banana Yoshimoto is a hipster writer. Another choice in this genre is the luscious Plum, though for different reasons, neither Prune nor Cherry will fly.
  3. Cedar
    • Origin:

      Word name
    • Description:

      Fresh and fragrant nature name more apt to be used for a boy.
  4. Coyote
    • Dream
      • Origin:

        Word name
      • Description:

        Possible middle name inspiration. Has been used as a first by musical couple Sole and Ginuwine, and basketball star Allen Iverson.
    • Hawina
      • Juniper
        • Origin:

          Latin tree name
        • Meaning:

          "young"
        • Description:

          Juniper is a fresh-feeling nature name -- it's a small evergreen shrub -- with lots of energy. A new favorite of fashionable parents, Juniper joins such other tree and shrub names as Hazel, Acacia, and Willow.
      • Maple
        • Origin:

          English tree name from Latin
        • Meaning:

          "piece of cloth"
        • Description:

          If Apple and Juniper, Oak and Pine can be baby names, why not Maple? Why not indeed. We've heard Maple starting to be used quietly, but with its lush sound and attractive image, we predict its use as a first name will grow — and its choice by the Jason Batemans — who combined it with the sweet middle name Sylvie — will only accelerate that growth.
      • Paxus
        • Pheonix
          • River
            • Origin:

              Nature name
            • Description:

              River shares the tranquil feeling of all the water names, and seems to have pretty much escaped its past strong association with River Phoenix and his unfortunate fate. Actor Joaquin Phoenix named his son with actress Rooney Mara after his brother River.
          • Sassafras
            • Skyblue
              • Turnip
                • Yukon
