I have many interests and an inability to make up my mind about which one to focus on. That's how I came up with my name: ControlledChaos1.

Some of the most beautiful names I've ever heard have come from parents who have decided to use Mother Nature as inspiration when deciding on a name for their baby. Coming up with such earthy names is fairly easy, as all you really have to do is take a walk along the beach or a stroll through a park, but if you're trying to come up with a name that is unique and somewhat underused, then it may take a little longer.

While the list of names below will contain some names that you may have heard before, I will try to come up with suggestions that you may not have ever heard of. It will be up to you and your partner if you decide to make use of it. No matter what you choose to call the new life you're bringing into the world, I know it will be out of love. Thank you for paying a visit... and congratulations!

The earth has its music for those who will listen.

— George Santayana

Mother Nature from Disney Fantasia

A beautifully done piece that reminds all of us of just how cruel and kind Mother Nature can really be, but in the end, always strives to create life. I dare you to watch this video and not feel that your emotions have been put through a blender by the end... creating something wonderful and delicious. All set to the music of Hans Zimmer. Such a shame these types of short films aren't being made that much anymore, isn't it?

The Beauty of Mother Earth

If you are an avid fan of spending time in the natural world, and I assume you are since you want to give your child a name associated with the wilderness, then the video above will be a joy to watch. Beautiful scenes set to beautiful music may not get you excited, but once you start watching stuff like this, and you have the time, most people will watch it to the end. Enjoy.

Unique Names Versus Normal Everyday Names

A unique baby name will all but guarantee that your child will stand out all of his or her life, but give careful thought on how unusual the name is, as they will be the ones who will have to live with it. If the name is unusually weird, it should definitely have a story behind it; an interesting story having something to do about the circumstances of the birth. How weird is too weird will have to be up to you, though. Take your time when naming.
