How about Dill?

I love the name Heath.

There are multiple men named Moss I know, but I suspect it started as a contraction of Moses/Moishe rather than a literal plant reference. I like it anyway.

I don't know any Jarrahs in real life, but I don't mind it. I learned it on EB within the last week so probably everyone knew it already.

I like Hawthorn but EB says it reminds them of some suburb somewhere. I like Linden.

I know many Ilans/Elans (and female Ilanas), which means "oak" and an Oren which means "pine tree."

I have seen Huon mentioned on baby name sites but I don't know if anyone actually names babies Huon.

I like Forest with one r better than with two, which for some reason is pulling up a KKK reference in my mind.

I appreciate that Hawthorn probably brings images of hedges to you, la di dah - but would not be a nature name in Australia - not because it is a suburb, many suburb names work fine as names - but because it is an AFL football team (based in the suburb of Melbourne)

Our friends just called their baby boy Leif and pronounce it 'Leaf' - I see that's already been suggested.

Another friend was going to use Onyx for a boy but had a girl.
