Floral names

I love floral names, which do you like best of these? I feel I can't really go for Florence, unfortunately, due to a friend recently using it. I'm considering:

Fleur
Flora
Rosalie
Rosa (tho DH will veto this)

Or any other inspiration? Not so keen on Rosemary. Middle name will be Saskia, as it's a favourite family name.

I like Flora or Rosa best

Fleur is a Harry Potter character and Flora is the name of a margarine.

Rosa is my favourite (but I'm not sure it goes with Saskia, as they both end is 'a' sounds), then Rosalie.

I like Primrose but the the inevitable nn of 'Prim' sounds a bit odd. Holly, willow, blossom.

Rosalie is great.

Fleur is pretty cool too.

I'm not a fan of Flora (margarine), and Rosa is quite boring.

They're all lovely names.
Rosalind?
Laurel?

Iris is a pretty but unfussy name. Not sure it runs off the tongue well with Saskia though.

Violet too is feminine but not fussy.

I like Fleur the most on your list.

Fluer and Flora were on our list, both beautiful imo! We also had Posy on the list.

Flora. Beautiful name

Flora is my favourite.

Jooni Wed 18-Jan-17 21:26:14

Flora is lovely, and I like Rosa too. I think something not ending in -a would flow best with Saskia though.

I like all of your suggestions except Fleur. I know one, and when you say her name it's more like a loose sound, if that makes sense!

Barefootcontessa84 Thu 19-Jan-17 11:09:49

What about Rosamund?

Chloris33 Thu 19-Jan-17 17:28:48

Lovely, thank you! I love Ianthe too, though DH doesn't, unfortunately. I love Mirabelle too - I was considering this though worried it's a bit fanciful...

cherrycrumblecustard Thu 19-Jan-17 17:29:43

Flora is lovely. The margarine was named AFTER a spring floral meadow, not vice Versa!

Chloris33 Thu 19-Jan-17 17:31:20

Quite like Rosamund too. And Rosalind, tho not shortened to Ros.

SenseiWoo Thu 19-Jan-17 17:36:02

Jacinta (Hyacinth)?

Of your list, I like Rosalie the best.

Oly5 Thu 19-Jan-17 17:39:09

another vote for Flora
