Cottagecore names like Daisy, Cyprus, Fawn, Finch, and Lupin are inspired by plants and animals, while River, Storm, and Autumn refer to the nonliving parts of the natural world. We see names inspired by rural occupations like Archer, Shepherd, and Sawyer, as well as literary references or names from ancient mythology, like Atticus and Daphne, that make us think of curling up by the fire with a good book.

Today’s new parents find themselves trapped in quarantine, staring out apartment windows onto empty urban sidewalks. Perhaps a desire to escape this bleak reality and the hope for a better future draws today’s parents to the cottagecore aesthetic.
