Olive is a feminine given name of English origin, meaning "olive tree". The name is derived from the Latin word "oliva" and is associated with peace due to the symbolism of the olive branch. In Greek mythology, olives symbolize peace and friendship, as the goddess Athena used an olive tree to bring peace to the region. The name Olive has been popular in English-speaking countries since the 1800s, along with other tree and plant names for girls. It experienced a decline in popularity in the latter half of the twentieth century but has seen a resurgence in recent years, partly due to the popularity of the related name Olivia. Today, Olive ranks as the 158th most popular female name in the United States and has been chosen by several celebrities for their daughters.
