As the summer season approaches, many parents are searching for unique and meaningful names for their newborns. To help inspire these parents, Natasha Ascott, who owns Muddy Puddles, has revealed a list of 30 summer-inspired baby names that evoke the spirit of the season – and, of course, they are all beautiful.

Celebrities are also wild about flower names for girls. Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom named their daughter Daisy, while Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner chose the name Violet for their daughter.

However, the appeal of floral and nature-inspired names isn't limited to celebrities. Many parents looking for unique and memorable names are drawn to rare and distinctive options that combine tradition with individuality.

Natasha said: “The selected names in this list range from old-fashioned, traditional names such as Jasmine and Violet to quirky, contemporary names such as Juniper and Marigold. Juniper and Marigold are starting to rise in popularity because of their distinctive rhythm and not being ultra-feminine in a traditional sense of sound.

"Rose, Jasmine and Solana also make the list of my preferred names. Ocean, Sunny and June are beautiful unisex names, which perfectly reflect the season while Blaze feels energetic and bold.

"Daphne has a mythological grace while Meadow is serene and reflects the beauty of nature. The inclusion of both floral and nature-inspired names adds a charming and earthy touch, perfect for parents seeking names that are both meaningful and distinctive."
