21 Baby Name Ideas You’re Guaranteed Not To Have Thought Of
Naming children â€” particularly girls â€” after precious gemstones have long been a trend: Ruby, Amber, Jade. If the idea appeals to you, but youâ€™re after something off the beaten path, consider Lazuli. Lapis Lazuli is a beautiful, vibrant blue gemstone, and the name Lazuli itself is the root of the word azure, a deep blue color. As a name, Lazuli would be of Persian origin, with the meaning of â€œheavenâ€ or â€œsky.â€ More metaphorically speaking, one could say Lazuli means â€œstone of heaven,â€ 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.
