If you want your daughter’s name to have a connection to nature—and Huckleberry or Shrub just won’t do—consider Willow. It brings to mind a long-limbed, lissome tree with a sweeping canopy of green leaves that stands out in a field. What parent doesn’t think their beloved child stands out from the crowd? The word, which has English roots, translates to “slender" or "graceful,” and it’s what actors Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith named their daughter in 2000.
