The hippie culture of the 1960s brought us a group of people with free spirits and who didn't conform to conventional values and fought for what was right.
This group promoted peace of Earth and exposed the 20th century to an appreciation of nature and beauty. Hippy names are often associated with these two topics and have integral links to being spiritual and creating a love for all people and also love of themselves.
