Mimosa, nickname Mimi would be rather cute, actually. Camelia very pretty too.

Jessamine is lovely. Not convinced by most of the others.

Jessamine is my favourite.

I like lots of them! How is Jessamine pronounced? Is it Jessa-min?

I'm loving Marigold at the moment.

I don't think Jasmine, Amber or Jade are particularly unusual compared to the others.

I've taught an Emerald, and my sister was at school with an Amethyst.

I quite like Pearl, Lilac and Jasper. Also like Zinnia.

Knew a child called Celandine. Beautiful name and beautiful child.
