Floral Baby Names

Floral baby names, or names taken from flowers, have been around for hundreds of years, and appear in many cultures and languages. They enjoyed a surge of popularity in England in the nineteenth century, and are often associated with Victorian baby names.

Most floral names are used only occasionally these days, although some names are actually enjoying a 21st century revival. Daisy, Jasmine, Lily, and to some extent Violet, are all experiencing an upswing in popularity, compared to previous years.

For the most part though, the floral names are a quiet group. Still, they have an undeniable resilience and appeal. In 2006 alone, at least half a dozen celebrities chose to give their daughters the middle name "Rose," perhaps indicating a coming resurgence of that, and other floral names.

Our list includes some names that are not English-language flower names as such, but actually mean "flower," (such as "Anthea,"), or have a derivation that is associated with flowers, such as the name "Yolanda". We included such names when we thought they merited attention. Just click on any of the names to see their meaning and origin.
