Gender: F Origin of Bluebell: Flower name

Bluebell is one flower name that is used very quietly. Geri "Ginger Spice" Halliwell joined her former Spice Sisters in creative baby-naming with this adventurous -- some might say outlandish -- choice. Distinctive and charming? Or better suited to a farmyard animal? Your call.

Used to some extent as a first name when flower names were in vogue at the end of the 19th century. Now rare in Britain, perhaps because it became a favourite name for a cow before numbers and code-names became the norm in farming circles.
