As any parent or soon-to-be parent knows, there's nothing more precious to look at than a sleeping baby. While all baby names have meaning, baby names with a serene, peaceful, calm vibe can bestow a tranquil energy on your little one before they even arrive.
After the last year we've all had, we could use some serenity and peaceful wishes as new life emerges from this ever-changing world.
'Peace' translates so deeply and meaningfully in so many ways: being at peace with oneself, being the calm in a storm, wishing peace for everyone you know and love, or just general hippie vibes!
If you're into peace, love, and tranquility, then any of these baby names could be the right fit for your baby.
