Nature-Inspired Baby Names for Parents Who Love The Great Outdoors

Whether you’re searching for a baby name that evokes something clear, clean, and beautiful or a baby name that implies grounded and natural, a name that is inspired by the natural world is a lovely choice. 

Many earthy names are gender-neutral as well, so if you are creating a single list of names, we hope you’ll find something you love here. We did not separate these names by gender — that’s up to you!
