I am an avid promoter of unique baby names, stemming from almost three decades of being Sarah M., as opposed to just Calla or Mallow. But no, I carry my last initial or last name and turn my head a million times in every store I go into, always thinking someone is talking to me or calling my name. When creating lists of baby names (which I do even when I am not pregnant), I look to things around me, especially that in nature. Sure, I have never put “Grass” on my list or “Weed,” but I contemplated momentarily, “Rock” and “Stem.” However, one common theme that often makes it onto my list is names of flowers. And not just the common flower names like Violet, Daisy and Rose, but other more unique flower names. Sure, I always skip Honeysuckle, Bluebell and Dogwood. But, if it doesn’t sound ridiculous, I jot it down and say it outload a few times before deciding if it makes the final cut.

Cane (from Indian Cane)
Spear (from King’s spear)
A flower baby name is beautiful and unique. Of course, names like Rose or Lily are a bit more common, but they give off the sense of loveliness. A flower baby name will immediately connect your child to the awe inspiring aspect of nature. And if you are afraid of giving your son a flower baby name, think again. Read through the list provided and notice how masculine the names sound. Galax and Spear are unique, masculine and lovely. I cannot see why a boy would not be happy with a name like that. Having a name like Spear would be a lot more original and manly than a name like Jacob. Spear has presence and individuality.
Another idea is to create a flower theme when naming your children. Some people enjoy using all “D” names for their children. Instead, consider using all flower baby names. For instance, if you have two girls and two boys: Mallow, Willow, Spear and Cane would complete a theme of flowers and beauty. This is also a wonderful ideas for creating uniting with twins or multiples.
Whether you are having a boy or girl, flower baby names will provide inspirational beauty and uniqueness.
