Hippie Names: Flowers
Starting off our mega list with some flower power! Check out these fragrant flower names for boys and girls!
Flower names for boys
It’s surprisingly difficult to come up with masculine names in the flower category. But, I’ve got you covered with some truly great male flower baby names!
- Aster // a daisy-like flower // they come in blue, white, and purple and are known to attract butterflies // Greek origin
- Bud // as in flower bud! // a name that’s symbolic of a budding future // also short for “Buddy” and means friend // American origin
- Miller // as in Dusty Miller, a silver-leaved perennial flower // popular as a last name but unique as a first or middle name! // Irish or Scottish origin
- Quince or Quincy // a type of shrub in the rose family // means “apple like fruit” // Latin origin
- Ren // means lotus in Japanese // the lotus flower is a symbol of self-growth and enlightenment // makes a great middle name for a boy or girl

For a boy’s name with some serious flower power, try combining these! Think: Aster Rhodes, Bud Rosen, Quince Miller.
Some of the aforementioned flower names for boys work for a girl too!
Flower names for girls
The options for girl flower names are endless… but… most of them don’t have the boho vibe you’re looking for. (Think: Cynthia, Heather, Florence, etc.)
These hippie girl names for your flower child may do the trick!

Hippie names gone wrong
The name you choose for your child is—needless to say—entirely up to you! If you’re a lover of music, nature, and symbols of peace, and you want to choose a hippie baby name that reflects that, go for it!
That said, be sure to give some thought as to whether you’re saddling your child with a name that will attract teasing and embarrassment.
Think twice before going with a name like “Moon Unit”, for example.
Yes, you read that right. Rock ’n Roll hall of famer, Frank Zappa, named his eldest daughter Moon Unit. Her siblings? Dweezil, Diva, and Ahmet. (Ahmet got lucky!)
Final thoughts on choosing the best boho hippie baby name
Deciding what to name your child is tough! You want to pick a name that you and your partner both love, which is tricky in and of itself. Plus, you want the name to represent who you are as a family, while still giving your child the opportunity to shape his or her own future. This is no easy task!
My best advice to you is to choose a name (whether it’s a hippie name or not) that makes you happy when you hear it and see it in writing.
Jot some names down on a handful of post-it notes. Stick them all around the house. Every time you pass by the name, think about whether it gives you good vibes. Ditch any that don’t.
I also recommend keeping a “short list” of baby names on your phone. Write out the first, middle, and last name combinations. Take a peep at your list every now and then and see if there are any names that continue to give you pause. Cut these from your list. Rinse and repeat until you’ve got it narrowed down!
P.S. If you’re not totally sold on a hippie baby name, check out these awesome name combinations for Aden, Alex, Grayson, Carter, and Theo! Or, get some middle name ideas for Madelyn, Piper, or Aubrey!
