Fly away from the norm with Nest, a sweet name for girls reminiscent of a bird’s home. This Welsh name has two possible origins—the first is a derivation of the Greek Agnes, bearing the lofty meanings “pure,” “chaste,” “holy,” and “sacred.” Nest may also stem from the Italian Onesta, from the Latin hŏnestus, meaning “honest” and “honorable.” A quirky appellation replete with compliments and a warm sense of home, Nest is a stand-out choice for your baby bird.
