Meaning:Dry; Flower
Waiting for baby-name inspiration to blossom? You might recognize the girl's name Azalea from the flower, and that's for good reason! Azalea is of Greek origin and means "dry." But this definition doesn’t need to be of any concern. The floral name chosen by Swedish botanist Carl Linnaeus in the eighteenth century was because the colorful blooms thrived in well-drained, sandy soil. Giving baby a name like Azalea not only pulls inspiration from the beautiful appearance of the flower but will also teach baby to persevere, no matter the conditions.
