Baby will always be, well, your baby in your eyes, and you can use this Greek name to reflect that. Malva, a girl's name, means "slender" or "delicate." As a Scandinavian name, Malva can mean "soft," giving the name an all-round feeling of gentleness. Baby can look to their name as a reminder that it's okay to embrace their tender-hearted side and that there's strength in quietness. If you're also in the market for a name with its roots in nature, you'll probably appreciate that malva is the Latin name for the mallow family of plants, which, thanks to marshmallows, carries its own feeling of softness.
