evergreen climbing plant
The climbing evergreen plant known as ivy makes a simple, charming name for a girl. Derived from an Old English word, Ivy represents fidelity (ancient Greeks gave newlyweds an ivy wreath to symbolize their faithfulness to one another). It also symbolizes eternity and, as anyone who has ever had the plant climbing a wall of their home, the notion of it sticking around forever feels accurate. On the celebrity front, the name garnered lots of attention when superstars Beyoncé and Jay-Z named their daughter Blue Ivy in 2012.
