When Henry David Thoreau penned his seminal literary offering Walden, the world took note, and, much like the author, began to reflect on the wonders of simple living in natural surroundings.

Flower names like Lily and Ivy blossomed, while water names like Bay and Lake swelled into consciousness as new parents sought out ways to keep things au naturel. Here are 38 of the latest nature-inspired, creative baby names for girls that have been cropping up all over the registries.
