Do you envision your litltle girl traipsing barefoot through the forest with a crown of flowers on her head? Then we offer for your consideration Fauna, who is not only one of the fairies from Disney’s Sleeping Beauty, but also an ethereal first name for a pair of nature-loving parents. In Roman mythology, Fauna was the goddess of earth and animals, and it’s also an English word that refers to all the of the animals in a particular area or time period. It doesn’t get more green than that.
