For centuries, parents have been drawn to flower names for their little girls, because they strike a perfect balance between romantic and grounded sensibilities. The most obvious examples are Rose and all her variants – Rosalind, Rosamund, Rosetta, Rosa. You’ve probably met one or two. What about parents who love the idea of a flower name and don’t want something as traditional, but want a certain familiar sound?

We are expecting our second little girl in the next few months.
We found the perfect name for our first daughter, Viviana Rose. We call her Viviana, Vivi and Viv. I love the nickname options. We also love that it’s classic with a twist so that it’s out of the US Top 100.
Now we’re expecting another pretty little girl and I need a name that can live up to the fullness, warmth, and femininity of Viviana. It has to feel right on a child, but also appropriate for an adult.
The problem is that we’ve already used our favorite name, and picking another name is just leaving me feeling deflated.
