Did you know that selecting a baby’s name is one of the most important decisions you’ll make when you become a first time parent? So many first time moms and dads frantically plow down the pages of Baby Name books in the hopes that the perfect title for their child will pop out at them but reluctantly come up empty handed. So before you find yourself in a tizzy dreading that you’re cute little bundle of joy will be nameless for the first couple of weeks, calm down and take a second to focus on what’s really important to you and your partner.

The meaning of a name relies heavily on the historical significance and then again on any ties it may have to a language such as Irish, German or Swedish dialect. This might be important if you hope to keep a family name in existence or simply want the child to be tightly connected to their ethnic or cultural roots. For other parents, their baby’s name must be thematic after a feeling or positive characteristic such as “hope or “joy”. In this case, a baby book might really come in handy since most of them are organized in this manner.

It might come as a surprise, but choosing a name that is based on a flower is really quite common and not just for girls, but for boys, too! Whether you’re a florist, grower, farmer, designer or simply a person who loves a beautiful bouquet of blossoms, take a peek at these names that might fit perfectly for your flower child!
