Origin: Australian Aboriginal/Old English

Meaning: Wattle valley.

Variations: Wattle Valley

Wattle is an Australian tree and a member of the acacia family. It can grow quite tall or present as a bush. Its leaves are a grey-green and they are bejewelled with bright yellow flowers that resemble small, fluffy balls. The Australian Aboriginals use the wattle for many things including tea (from a part of the roots). The seed pods can also be collected for its seeds and eaten raw, dried or made into a flour.
