Pretty and slightly unusual flower names?

Would be a middle name. I thought a flower name would be nice for a spring baby. (Am due in May)

I quite like Primrose but don't know if it's too, well, prim!

I think Primrose is very nice.

How about ' May'? It is the middle name of two of my family members and I think it is lovely. And apt for the timing of your little one.

Blossom nice too

Second for May here. Just re-read my posts and am incoherent, sorry. Sleep, must have sleep.

I like Primrose. How about Marguerite (which is French for Daisy)?

CheerfulYank Sat 26-Jan-13 04:27:11

We may name her Margaret soworn, so Marguerite wouldn't do! smile

I do like May but our preferred nickname is Maggie and Maggie May is a bit...something. smile

I like Maggie May. No I love it.

Ohhhh I like Lavender!

We're having Ivy-Rose if it's a girl (still haven't decided if that's a first name or first and middle name) and a flower middle name could be overkill- but Lavender is now a contender for the potential DD2!

Aster
Laurel
Clover
Flora
Daisy
Delphine
Calla

Not strictly a flower but I love the name Fern.

Primrose is awesome too.

Primrose Shipman

Lavender Patten

Don't do it!

I'd go for Viola or Columbine. [romantic]

Dahlia

So many great choices here, thanks!

Our surname is rather...prosaic. Think a journalist quite convinced of her own gorgeousness. So I don't know if a flowery middle would sound odd? But I love them!

Columbine is beautiful Yak but unusable in America due to the school shooting. sad

TanteRose Sat 26-Jan-13 05:54:47

Primrose is lovely (the Shipman connection mentioned above would be unknown in the US)

Maggie Rose is also spectacular!

I do quite like Maggie May (even though I was sort of joking when I wrote to you before) smile

TanteRose Sat 26-Jan-13 05:56:52

Oh what about Rosalind?

Margaret Rosalind is beautiful

LeMousquetaireAnonyme Sat 26-Jan-13 06:23:43

Sakura (cherry blossom) very apt for a may baby...

Amaryllis. I love it but wasn't right for us to use. I called dd that through most of my pregnancy though. Beautiful flowers too!
I know someone called Primrose and its always shortened to Prim. Not quite so lovely!
