When it comes to naming baby, it’s no surprise that many parents-to-be look to flowers for ideas. After all, nature is all around us and can serve as the best source of inspiration! Plus, nature, like babies, can be delicate, sweet, beautiful and resilient. There are plenty of flower baby name options out there, particularly for baby girls, including Iris, Holly, Violet and more.
