Starting a family can be pretty exciting, especially for couples who are in the early stages of family planning. Many couples tend to fuss over or even argue about the possible names for their baby. If you are expecting a child or planning to have one soon, you can start to keep in mind the possible names for him or her!
Some couples name their children after their parents or grandparents. Some choose a name that symbolises something significant for them. If you are someone who wants to name your child something unique and with meaning, you should try out baby names derived from flowers.
If you are someone who loves flowers or enjoys gardening, you can also consider naming your baby after your favourite flower or a flower that you think represents him or her.
Here is a list of floral baby names provided by Little Flower Hut that you can choose from for your little one. These names are not only unique and sweet, but each also holds a special meaning!
I. Baby Girls
1. Alyssa – This name comes from the alyssum flower – one of the sweetest flowers and a Greek moniker. The name itself symbolises ‘rationality’ or being ‘rational’.
One of the famous people who have this name is Alyssa Milano. She is a well-known feminist who spoke up about sexual harassment and started the #MeToo movement. Your child will definitely be thrilled to be named Alyssa because not only does it symbolise strength, it also symbolises the advocacy of equality.
2. Azalea – This flower comes in the vibrant shade of pink and usually blooms during springtime. This flower is considered to symbolise vibrance and boldness.
3. Aster – This Greek name means ‘little star’. Perfect for your newborn who will be a new light in your life. This flower is also known to attract butterflies.
4. Briony – The name means ‘to sprout’ because this plant or vine tends to sprout wildly in an upwards direction.

2. Cedar – Of French origin, this name came from a tree called cedar which was believed to be the home of important gods and is even believed to be a gate to different realms. The perfect name for that mystical touch.

7. Sage – This name is of Latin origin and it means ‘wise’. This name is perfect for those who wish to welcome their baby into a soothing and positive world, blessed with wisdom.
8. Sorrel – Other than this plant being made into tea, it also means ‘reddish-brown hair’. You would know when to name your child this.
