which flower name is your favourite? If you had a couple of daughters would you continue the theme?

We have a Rosie. Not planned to be a flower name, we didn't even think of that! And no dc2 won't have one if she is a girl. It he is a boy I can't think of any anyway!

My daughter is Lily and her cousins are Poppy and Daisy. I also love Iris, Violet and Ivy. And Fleur / Flora.

MrsMcEnroe Fri 05-Apr-13 20:17:42

Oh and yes, if we had another daughter we would have continued the flower theme

Not too keen on themed names, I wanted my daughters to be indivuals rather than part of a set (I was always one of 'the girls' with my 2 dsis) It will still happen but hopefully be less iyswim.

Of the names you have I love Iris and Ivy. I feel Lily, Poppy, Daisy and Rosie as too cutsey lovely for little girls but not really a grown up name. Rose is also beautiful (dd3 middle name) grin

I think most of the commonly used flower names are a bit overdone nwadays but, having said that, I totally love Zinnia and Daphne and would have gone for one of those if ds had been a dd.

I love Tansy as a girls name

Love love love flower names but can't cos surname is Plant. I once met a Poppy Plant though. My favourite is Daisy. Wouldn't have a theme though - especially flowers which makes me think of Hyacinth Bucket. I also really like Fleur.

Flower names are pretty,safe and overdone
Don't dislike as such just they're bit blah
Would I do flower theme no. If I were pushed for flow name I'd say lily

I used Fleur as my dd's middle name and would love to use Dahlia if we have another girl. I love Posy, Violette and Primrose too.

scottishmummy Fri 05-Apr-13 20:29:13

Ah yes fleur is pretty name

I have always thought that Snowdrop ( my favourite flower although I am almost sick of them this year) would be a lovely name for a winter baby but I have previously been told by MN that this is Not On.

tigerdriverII Fri 05-Apr-13 22:32:57

Aaargh thread killer. Come on, people, someone must like Snowdrop!!!

birdofthenorth Fri 05-Apr-13 23:38:00

Love Iris, Rose and Violet; like Ivy too but the rest are too cutesy for me. But no, I'm not hugely keen on matchy sibsets.

tigerdriverII Fri 05-Apr-13 23:41:12

bird. I raise you Snowdrop....

BananaHammocks Sat 06-Apr-13 08:47:44

tiger Snowdrop as a middle name only maybe? I felt bad that nobody was acknowledging you!

BananaHammocks Sat 06-Apr-13 08:49:17

I actually quite like Blossom and Bluebell, but I probably wouldn't go there...... probably...

MiaowTheCat Sat 06-Apr-13 08:49:31

I like the "older" sounding ones - like someone mentioned - ones like Iris, Rose etc... the Poppy, Daisy and the like I find hard to picture on teenagers and beyond - they very much seem to be awesome for little girls, but little girls grow up (more's the pity).

flowers123 Sat 06-Apr-13 13:11:45

My daughters name is Heather and she loves it x

lottieandmia Sat 06-Apr-13 13:12:25

From your list I like Iris.

TallyGrenshall Sat 06-Apr-13 13:13:46

Iris Rose is good

CointreauVersial Sat 06-Apr-13 13:17:53

Personally, I think the ones ending in -y are generally too twee and sweet for me. Poppy, Holly, Daisy......They blend into other similarly sickly names like Milly, Tilly, Molly, Maisy which are all over the place.

Butsome flower names definitely have character. Iris, for example. And Rose is such a classic.

MrsJohnDeere Sat 06-Apr-13 13:31:18

I too like the ones that don't end in y/ie/ee.

Favourite is Iris. Love Fleur, Violet too.

StellaNova Sat 06-Apr-13 13:37:54

My favourite is Rose, but I don't necessarily think of it as a flower name although obviously it is! If I had had a DD she would definately have been Rose. I was thinking of giving her Elizabeth as a middle name so her initials would have been R E D and calling her Rose Red! (probably just as well I only have sons...)

Not that keen on other flower names although I like Daisy - quite like Amaryllis, Jacinthe, Jasmine.

I love Iris and Violet.
