19 Latin baby names inspired by nature
Okay, so by now you probably know that Christina Aguilera gave birth to her second child, a girl, and named her Summer Rain Rutler. Matt Rutler is the baby's daddy, hence the last name and it's pretty obvious that the rest of the baby's name was inspired by nature. I'm sure there are many that find it odd that Xtina chose such a seemingly hippie-ish name for her little girl, but personally I love it. It's like a little mini-poem.
People tend to get freaked out by names that are out of the ordinary, but it's not like Christina named her baby something weird like Hashtag or Liquid Spinach. If anything I think nature is a great place to find inspiration for both girls' and boys' names.

Anyway, this got me to thinking of Latin baby names that are nature inspired and I think I came up with a very beautiful list if I do say so myself.
