Meaning:palm tree, city of palms
Palmira is a Portuguese and Spanish girl’s name that means “palm tree” or “city of palms.” Arguably the sultriest of all trees, palms are known for growing in hot, humid climates. They bring to mind luxurious tropical island getaways, sparkling blue waves lapping against white sand beaches, and cocktails served in coconuts. However, much like baby Palmira herself, palms aren’t just a pretty face. These evergreens can grow in almost all environments, including rainforests and deserts, and are prized for their durability. They have also been widely cultivated as a food source throughout history. Baby Palmira will undoubtedly be frond—er, fond—of having such a strong and sensual tree as her namesake.
