Okay, so I'm being picky!

We just can't seem to find a boys name we like as much as our girls name (Summer) for our little suprise. We have like 3 girl's names we like, but can't seem to find a single boy's name we like as much.

I'd love any suggestions you can come up with!

Thanks!

I don't think there's many nature-inspired boy names where the nature connection is obvious to most people, but if you look there are plenty nice male names that have a "nature" meaning that is a little more subtle. Here's a few (there were over 400 on the list) that I found on the list of boy names with nature meanings on nameberry.com.

Winter
Arbor
Cedar
Tilden
Linnaeus
Forrest
Banyan
Gardener
Grover
Marino
Ogden
Seward
Sherwood
Yarrow

Sorren - I'm not sure why I feel like it's a 'nature name'...maybe not?

Thanks ladies! My SIL's dog is Forrest- so that's off the plate.

I really appreciate your ideas- we're just waiting for something that jumps out at us! I don't know why the boy name is so much harder. A lot of the boy names based on nature just seem not very masculine.

IMO, the more masculine sounding nature names are those starting with an R

Rock
River/Rio

My BIL and SIL used a nature name but it's one syllable: Cove

I love River (esp since DH and I met whitewater kayaking), but our last name is one syllable starting with R and it just gets all twisted up when you try and say it. It comes out sounding like gobbiligook. I figure if I can't say it clearly it's really not fair to a 3 year old. I do totally love the name though!

I knew a boy once named Teva and love that name. It was pronounced Tay-vah.
