  1. I looove Silver. I think it's a great idea, for a boy or a girl. My other favorites: Pine, Alba, and I have a burgeoning love for Spruce now.

    Sylvia/Silvia/Sylvie are all time favorites, always. They're all classy, beautiful and timeless. I love both the feel and sound of them

    Evergeen is super interesting...not sure how I feel about it yet.

    I didn't realise Alba was a nature related name. Makes it more appealing than if it was just a celebrity surname! I also really like Spruce, Fraser and Fir from this list.
