Waverly is an English gender-neutral name that means “meadow of quivering aspens.” This evocative name conjures images of delicate white trees with shimmering yellow leaves, trembling in an autumn wind. In fact, this scene is so visually stunning and iconic that in Celtic mythology, it is believed that an aspen waving in the breeze was the tree’s way of communicating with the Otherworld. As such, Waverly is a great choice for baby if you want a unique name that will nurture a love of the natural world and a deep appreciation of beauty!
