Willow trees are known for their grace, flexibility and resilience—wonderful qualities (and a lovely name) to bestow on a baby girl. Willow, along with its close sound-alike Willa, have both gained favor in recent years, and are especially nice options for girls if the boy’s name William runs in the family.


  • German: Resolute or peaceful
