In a summer that welcomed celebrity offspring named Luna and Cricket, nature names are a wild card. Nature names gather inspiration from the birds and the bees, flowers, trees, the sky, and water. The recent wave of nature names for girls are more unpredictable. This summer, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian headed in a new direction with daughter, North. George Lucas reached new heights by calling his daughter, Everest. Go organic or au naturel with one of these nature names for girls.
