    Hi All

    I'm currently 14 weeks pregnant and we're looking to name our baby after a tree. We hope it will help him or her be grounded and down to earth. Any ideas?

    Thanks, Love and Peace x

    There's Holly, Laurel and Willow, of course. Or Aspen or Elm, maybe? For more unusual names, search for 'types of wood' on Google; some interesting sounding names there I'd never heard of before.

    I probably am, in all seriousness, going to name my first born after a tree :)

    Hre's my short list....
    Ash, Aspen, Banyan, Cedar, Hawthorn, Hazel, Ivy*, May#, Oak, Reid*, Rowan, Sequoia, Tree, Willow

    *Okay not trees per say, but are defined as such in Celtic astrology.
    Couple of articles on the subject:

    #Another name for Hawthorn

    Great article I've found, on trees and how they relate to paganism. Some neat ideas there, and talks about the meanings behind each one.

    Hi Mtnhighgirl

    Actually Linden is our favourite at the moment for a boy and has been forever. We like Willow for a girl.

    Thanks, Love and Peace x
