Name for today- April 22nd

By Kivanc Nis

Grove

Grove is a boys name.

Its meaning in Anglo-Saxon is a group of trees, it comes from the word Graf which means small thicket of trees.

It makes me think of a lovely place, where there is dappled sunlight and lovely big leaves casting your shadow on the ground.

Other tree related names include, Ashley, Ashton, Beore, Birch, Elan, Elder, Forest, Linden, Oakley, Oren, Quennel, Rowan, Thorne, Wythe.

Variants/Nicknames: Grover.

    Grove is nice. He sounds very calm, for some reason.

    I wouldn’t use it myself (for one, he’s terrible with my surname. I’m much too young to be expecting, however, so that doesn’t make a difference at all.), though I’d be pleasantly surprised to meet one in a sea of Aydens and Jaydens. 🙂

    Grover, on the other hand, still brings to mind the Muppet, but he’s not a bad name at all, either…

    Reminds me of the movie “The Nanny Diaries”. The little boy is called Grayer but the nanny nicknames him Grover and calls him Grove for short. It’s really cute.

    Ashen? Hmmm, that’s a word too isn’t it? Like ‘her face looked pale and ashen’? Maybe not haha I dunno. I prefer Asher/Asha. Apart from that I don’t really like Ash- names (Ashley, Ashlyn, Ashling, etc).
