    Blue-Ivy
    Jay Z and Beyonce have kept notoriously mum about the meaning behind their baby girl's name, but we like to think they were inspired by the blue skies and beautiful foliage of spring.
  • Skylar 3 of 21
    Skylar
    Trendsetter Rachel Zoe may have given her son a name that means scholar, but we love the nature-inspired nickname Sky, which brings to mind lazy spring afternoons spent flying kites and gazing at the clouds.
  • Lily Anne 4 of 21
    Lily-Anne-O'Donnel
    NCIS: Los Angeles heartthrob Chris O'Donnell and wife Caroline Fentress decided to start off their budding brood 12 years ago and named their first daughter a moniker full of flower power! Since then, the couple's family has grown to 5 kids.
  • Petal Blossom Rainbow 5 of 21
    Petal-Blossom-Rainbow
    Celebrity chef Jamie Oliver couldn't have picked a more spring-centric baby name for his daughter, Petal Blossom Rainbow. With older sisters Poppy and Daisy, we're sure the Oliver girls were the prize picks of their kinder-garden!
  • Sparrow James Midnight 6 of 21
    Sparrow-James-Midnight
    Spring is finally here: The sun is shining, the flowers are blooming, and birds are chirping! What better way to celebrate the birth of your little guy this spring than by giving him an avian moniker like the one Nicole Richie and Joel Madden chose for their second-born?
  • Violet 7 of 21
    Violet
    When Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck announced the name of their first daughter, it sparked Willy Wonka reenactments everywhere — “Violet, you’'re turning violet!” Blueberry-bloating and bratty kids aside, we like Ben and Jen'’s choice of a throwback to this classic, floral name.
  • Lily-Rose 8 of 21
    Lily-Rose
    Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis wanted double the flower power for their little girl, so they called upon the power of the hyphen to get the job done.
  • Poppy 9 of 21
    poppy
    Jamie Oliver, also known as the Naked Chef, named one of his daughters Poppy Honey, which is actually quite a sweet name (literally and figuratively) when compared to their second daughter'’s name, Daisy Boo — yet another kid doomed to hide her middle name from her classmates.
  • Iris 10 of 21
    Iris
    Jude Law and ex-wife Sadie Frost got colorful when naming their daughter after this vibrant purple flower, which also happens to be Greek for “rainbow.”
  • Sunday Rose 11 of 21
    Sunday-Rose
    Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman'’s daughter'’s full name, Sunday Rose, kind of sounds like a country song. Did Keith name his daughter with a future hit in mind? We smell a croon-y, father-daughter ballad in the making ... get your tissues ready.
  • Bluebell 12 of 21
    Bluebell
    Former Spice Girl Geri Halliwell named her daughter Bluebell Madonna after the tiny springtime flowers she loved so much. She told Hello! magazine, "“This is an emotional, spiritual, physical adventure that's going to last a lifetime."
  • Willow 13 of 21
    Willow
    The best thing about Will and Jada Pinkett-Smith’'s eldest daughter’'s name? It makes for a great pun every time the baby cries: “Look — it’'s a weeping willow!” Sure, you may not find that funny now, but just wait ‘till you'’re in the sleep-deprived trenches of new parenthood.
  • Daisy 14 of 21
    Daisy
    We love this youthful, sunny name that Meg Ryan chose when her daughter was born. However, the full name, Daisy True Ryan, is a little bit more questionable.
  • Suri 15 of 21
    Suri
    In order to fall in line with the hippest of the hip celebrity baby-naming parents, Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise spiced up the commonly used “Rose” by taking its Persian translation.
  • Birdie 16 of 21
    Birdie
    Actress Busy Philipps of Cougar Town admitted on The Bonnie Hunt Show that she named her daughter Birdie after Lady Bird Johnson — and because she wanted her to have a unique name. We just hope Birdie doesn’t suffer an onslaught of "A little birdie told me!" jokes.
  • Jasmine 17 of 21
    Jasmine
    In 2008, Nigel Barker, handsome photographer from America’'s Next Top Model, welcomed new daughter, Jasmine. What girl wouldn'’t want to be named after a beautiful white flower and a Disney princess?
  • Mae 18 of 21
    Mae
    After Jen Scheft was rejected by Andrew Firestone on 2003's season of The Bachelor, and her own shot at being the Bachelorette failed to bring about a long-lasting romance, she finally had some luck in love when she met her husband, Joe Waterman, on a blind date in 2008. Although their first daughter was born in the fall, they named her Mae Elizabeth — a simple spelling twist on a beautiful spring name.
  • Tallulah 19 of 21
    Tallulah
    Bruce Willis and Demi Moore'’s teenaged daughter carries the name Tallulah, which has a Native-American origin and means “leaping water.”
  • Charlie and Dolly 20 of 21
    Charlie and Dolly
    Rebecca Romijn and her husband, Jerry O' Connell, used flower-inspired middle names for their twin girls: Charlie Tamara Tulip and Dolly Rebecca Rose Romijn-O’Connell. Try to say THAT 10 times fast!
  • Zola 21 of 21
    Zola
    Eddie Murphy’'s little girl’'s name, Zola, means “lump of earth.” That's an interesting pick, for sure! But what we love even more? This little girl's middle name: Ivy.
