Meaning:Windflower; Daughter of the wind
Instill confidence and wonder in baby with the feminine name Anemone. This bold choice pays tribute to a clever ocean dweller in the same family as coral and jellyfish. On dry land, there's also the flowering anemone plant similar to the buttercup. The word itself hails from Greek and means "windflower" or "daughter of the wind." In ancient Greek mythology, Aphrodite transforms wounded Adonis into a crimson flower whose petals blossom in the wind, hence the name's meaning. While some may say Anemone is hard to pronounce, they don't know your little sprout! It's a celebration of nature's beauty and the mysteries of the deep.
