Earthy names encompass any and all names inspired by nature and planet earth. This includes animal-inspired names like Fox and Bjorn (which means “bear” in Swedish), tree names like Aspen, Elm, and Forrest, and names taken from natural landforms, like River and Bryn (which means “hill” in Welsh).

It’s no surprise that earthy names are growing in popularity during a time in history where so many people are quarantined in their city apartments. Earthy names fit in with the cottagecore aesthetic, which is based on nostalgia and a love for the natural world. Cottagecore names are trending now, presumably for this exact reason.

It may also be that a growing appreciation for the natural world is a small silver lining of todays’ pandemic-world. With playgrounds and public indoor spaces closing their doors, many families are rediscovering the wonders of nature. A forgotten pond or grove of trees now serve as spaces to play and gather with immediate family members out of doors. Dinner out and a movie may not be an option but a picnic and a day in the woods works pretty well for now.
