Inspired by Katy Perry's baby name? Here are 70+ blooming beautiful names


Happy Spring!

Contrary to popular belief, Spring doesn't officially start until well into September, with the actual start of the season in the Southern Hemisphere being 22 September

Nature bursting with new life is truly inspiring and it's not surprising that we found dozens of names all inspired by springtime to add to our ever-growing list of Baby names

For celeb parents Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom, a spring themed baby name just made sense with the couple naming their first child together, Daisy. (See more in the video above)

If you're feeling a similar type of way about naming your next child, check out the list below.
