Iris

rainbow
ORIGIN: Greek
POPULARITY: 411
Picture this: A Greek goddess sprinkling the clouds with seawater to create the first rainbow. That was the work of Iris, whose name rightly means “rainbow” but is more commonly used today to describe the colored part of an eyeball and a flower. Giving baby girl a name straight out of the garden is nothing new—there’s Lily, Violet, Daisy and many more that have been around for centuries, but Iris has been consistently on the popularity charts since the 1800s.
