Willow will she blow far and wide…

WILLOW

With Pink announcing the birth of her daughter Willow Sage Hart, will there be a rush of baby Willow’s born in New Zealand?

************

Meaning

Taken from the name of the tree which is derived from the Middle English wilwe (willow). Willow trees are noted for their flexibility and graceful appearance, hence the adjective willowy, which means “gracefully slender and lithe,” qualities seen as desirable feminine attributes.

From A World of Baby Names by Teresa Norman.

****************

Alternatives

Willa, Willia, Wilhelmina, Willamina, Willo, Wilma, Willona.

*********

Rankings

Willow entered the New Zealand top 100 for the first time in 2010, making spot  #83.

USA #290 for 2010, previous years, 313, 407, 429 & 524. Entered in 1998 at #853.

********

Community

Here in a community I post  in is a Mother with a Willow – Her son is Jett and her daughter Willow Saige, another person commenting in the thread has chosen Willow for her unborn daughter several months ago.

Another forum I have recently started to visit, a poster asks about Sage for a boy and gets mixed reactions.

Willow is actually on my short list but I think its sure to rise status will deter us 🙂

Featured name from the NZ top 100

Oliver

Oliver was runner up in 2009, he made a sizeable leap from #8 in 2008. Oliver was placed #34 in 1999, slowly gained to #26 in 2000. He hung between 14-16 from 2002-2005 then gained two to #12 in 2006.

Oliver is an international favourite too.  He was #2 in England and Wales and Norway for 2009.  #7 in Sweden, further back to #24 in Scotland and in Ireland sitting outside the top 50 at #62 but climbing quickly as placed #121 in 2005 and #84 in 2008.  In the USA he just slips inside the top 100 at #98, the highest ever is #103 in 1910.
