Meaning:Greenery, foliage
Parents foraging for nature-inspired baby names must not overlook Philis. This feminine appellation derives from the Greek Phyllis, carrying the verdant meanings of “greenery” and “foliage.” Phyllis is a tragic figure from Greek mythology—a classic tale of heartbreak—who transforms into an almond tree after she passes away. Philis may serve as a gentle reminder to baby that even in the darkest of hours, life finds a way to flourish.
