Baby Name Expert Shares 20 Summer-Inspired Names for Girls

If you’re expecting this summer, you may be looking at baby names and wondering where to start. Should you go with a traditional name, something sentimental, a family name, or venture off the beaten track?

So if you’re searching for a moniker that reflects the season, Editor in Chief of Random Names, Mia Bardot, has selected her favourite names inspired by flowers – and, of course, they are all beautiful. 

Celebrities are also wild about flower names for girls.

Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom have a little girl named Daisy, and Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner share daughter Violet. But of course, flower and nature-inspired names don’t have to be favoured solely by celebrities. In fact, many parents seeking something truly unique and memorable are turning towards rare and distinctive names that offer a blend of tradition and individuality. This trend is particularly noticeable among those who appreciate the beauty and uniqueness of less common floral names.

Below are Random Names’ summer-inspired monikers. The possibilities can go on and on, but Mia wanted to make sure to give only the right amount of inspiration by gathering 30 of her favourites.


Mia Bardot commented on the list:

“The selected names in this list range from old-fashioned, traditional names such as Lily and Layla to quirky, contemporary names such as Juniper and Marigold

The latter are starting to rise in popularity, especially in the Pacific Northwest. They have a distinctive rhythm and are not ultra-feminine in a traditional sense of sound.

Azaleas, Dahlias, and Magnolias also make the list of my preferred names” she says. “They are extremely feminine in style.”

“The beauty of flower names lies in their versatility, offering endless possibilities and the ability to fulfill a wide range of goals and styles” she said.
