21 Baby Name Ideas You’re Guaranteed Not To Have Thought Of
Flowers have long been a source of inspiration for families expecting daughters: Rose, Lily, Iris. For parents who love the idea of a botanical name but want something that stands out â€” as well as something thatâ€™s not so, well, girly â€” try on the lovely-sounding name Acantha. The name is of Greek origin and is usually defined as meaning â€œthornyâ€ or â€œprickle,â€ a meaning that might appeal to parents hoping to raise a strong daughter who can hold her own on any front. Mythologically speaking, Acantha was also the name of a nymph who was loved by the Greek god Apollo, giving this a different layer of appeal.
