Anemone is a floral name that relates to the ancient Greek myth of the famous love story of Aphrodite and Adonis, in which Aphrodite transforms her wounded lover's blood into a flower, the crimson anemone, whose blossoms are opened by the wind--accounting for its other name, windflower.

This makes an interesting, if challenging, choice for someone seeing an exotic flower name.
