With many spending more time in nature over the past two years, it comes as no surprise that names inspired by nature are a baby name trend for 2022. But which are most popular? One survey looked at government data from the US and UK over the last 20 years to find the most popular nature names.

For girls in the UK, the survey found Poppy to be the most popular name, with 43,000 babies given the name in the last 20 years. It was found to be less popular in America, as only 3,000 baby girls were given the name in the same time period. Below, the top 10 names for boys and girls inspired by nature in the UK.
