Meaning:Evening, evening star; Western land
If you imagine your little one being a force of nature, the girl's name Hesper is for you! It takes after Greek Hesperia, which means "evening," "evening star," and "western land." In Ancient Greece, Hesperides are the daughters of nymphs known as "Daughters of the Evening." They're forever tied to the beautiful golden light of sunsets, lending the name a cozy, thoughtful quality. If you have a green thumb, you could also choose Hesper for its relation to Hesperis. This lavender-colored flower is known for its gorgeous scent that grows more potent at dusk.
