Naming children — particularly girls — after precious gemstones have long been a trend: Ruby, Amber, Jade. If the idea appeals to you, but you’re after something off the beaten path, consider Lazuli.

As a name, Lazuli would be of Persian origin, with the meaning of “heaven” or “sky.” More metaphorically speaking, one could say Lazuli means “stone of heaven,” which is just beautiful. Most sources would say Lazuli is a boy name, but others pass it off for girls, so the choice is yours.
