Lessie is a gender-neutral name with a couple of sources. It's derived from a Scottish placename once called Lesslyn and is a variation of Leslie. This historic name means "garden of hollies" or "sacred garden," making it an apt choice for nature fans and outdoorsy types as well as those with religious or spiritual beliefs. Lessie is traditionally a surname and became a popular English name for boys over the years. In more recent times, it's been given a fresh and modern lease of life as a girl's name, particularly in America. Gardens are associated with beauty, growth, and serenity, symbolizing baby’s journey as they make their way in life!
