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 🙂
