Bohemian names are all the rage these days. If you’re looking for a unique, creative name that is sure to be a conversation starter, then this list of 12 bohemian names might be just what you need! These popular baby names have been around since the late 1800s and early 1900s. And while they may not be as well-known today as some other cultural trends in naming, like Biblical or royal names, they’re still great choices for parents who want to give their child something different.
Sophie Lauren: Sophisticated and strong, this bohemian name is a lovely choice for girls.
Ophelia: If you’re looking for something dark but not too serious, try Ophelia! It’s also pretty close to the modern day Olivia which makes it easy to remember if your daughter ends up being named that one day. Thalia: This Greek name means “blooming.” Plus it starts with an ‘T’ so most people won’t pronounce it wrong at first glance like they might with other more complicated names on this list! You can still go by Thalee or Tahl-ee though if you want something shorter. In Latin America, she goes by Talia.
Oona: This Irish name is pronounced “ah-nah” and it means ‘beautiful little one.’ If you want an alternative to the more common Olivia, this might be a good choice! Octavia: Another Latin name perfect for those who love nature, Octavia’s meaning comes from her being eighth in line of succession to Rome’s throne. The first few letters make up our modern day word ‘octopus’ which has nothing on its darker past as a powerful Roman wine! Octavia also makes great company with other names like Tessa or Vivienne so no matter what your last name will end up being, there’ll be something here for everyone.
- Jasmine: It
- Ivy: Meaning “life.”
- Jade: Meaning “generous and kind person.”
- Amber: Meaning “fossilized resin from the sap of trees.”
- Opal : Meaning “variety of precious stone that shimmers with every color in sunlight.”
- .etc. etc. (list goes on)..

We wanted to create a mix of more popular names and some less-known options.
The beauty in these is that they are all great for parents who want something outside the box. Some may be too trendy or weird for your kid, but we’re betting on most people’s love for nature combined with their desire for uniqueness!
So without further ado, here are our 12 favorites: Olivia – A timeless name meaning olive tree and often considered to represent peace and purity. This girls’ name has been steadily climbing up popularity charts since 200 (no pun intended) although it was actually one of the top 100 baby girl names in 1900 as well! It is also an honorable mention on this year’s US Baby Name list. Luna – A Latin word for moon, this name means “moon” in Italian and Spanish as well! While Luna is most likely not your run-of-the-mill girl’s name, it has been steadily climbing up popularity charts since the 1990s with a peak of #78 on US Baby Name List last year (2017). It also ranked at #137 on 2018 baby names so far.
Kali – The Hindu goddess personifying death;
she is often depicted holding a skull and wearing a skirt made from human arms who would destroy her enemies with time or beheading them herself. This girls’ name was relatively unheard of just under 100 years ago but now ranks at an unusual spot around #400 (#385 on baby name list).
Siri – Norse goddess of the sky and war, in modern times it is also a personal assistant Apple created to answer your questions or give you directions. This girls’ name has been steadily rising up popularity charts and now ranks at #88 among US Baby Names for 2018. As popular as Siri may be with our electronic devices, this Scandinavian-derived female given name was unheard of just over 100 years ago when its rank was less than 300th place! It reached an all time high ranking of #86 last year (2017) but so far in 2018 has dropped back down to around 400th place as well.
Thalia – Thalia means “the blooming one” which is derived from the Greek word “thaleia” which means the same thing.
Thalia is another name that’s been steadily rising in popularity and this year it ranks at #121 on US Baby Name charts, up from a ranking of just over 200 for most of the 20th century.
Kaya – The female given name Kaya comes from Arabic origins but also has roots in Native American names as well. It made its way into modern culture through author Margaret Laurence who wrote about an Ojibway girl by this name in her novel ‘The Stone Angel’. This girls’ given name can be spelled either with one or two letters depending on location (Kenya vs Kaya). In 2018, Kaya ranked at #171 among popular baby names in the US, up from #682 in 2006. Gwyneth – The name Gwyneth first appeared on a Welsh census of women’s names sometime in the 1100s and is derived from Welsh ‘gwenith’ meaning “white.” Today it ranks at #60 among top girls’ baby names in America with around 3400 new babies born each year going by this moniker. While there are variations that can be spelled Gwenevere or Guinevere which stem from European legends, these versions have never caught on as commonly when compared to the original spelling. Iris – This ancient Greek word means rainbow (and also was adopted into Latin) and has been used for centuries as not only a given name but also more recently
