Hippie Baby Names From Nature

Nature is where it all starts. It’s where we come from and it’s where we will return.

To honor the blessings that nature has bestowed on us all, you could choose a fitting hippie baby name from the first lot of names based on flowers, or the second of names from plants and trees.

Flowers may not be powerful or strong, but they are beautiful and life-giving. Without them, the world wouldn’t be as colorful – and plants wouldn’t get pollinated!
