I think it's a little too medicinal/edible to be used as a realistic name, even in the middle slot.
I would like Cecile or Lucille in the middle much more. Or, more adventuresome: Ancille (feminization of Ansel), Bertille, Cyrille, Priscille, Clotille....
I think you're right. I really examined my name list this morning and decided I can't see myself seriously ever using certain names. It was one of them.

I automatically think of the tea, but honestly I think the middle name spot is pretty fair game for almost anything. Chamomile though to me has a sort of dusty/grandmothery feel to it so I'd be picky about which vintage names I'd combine it with. I do like that it has a sort of soft quality to it.
Not really a fan of Chamomile as a name, sorry. If I had to pair it with something I would go with Ruth. Ruth Chamomile.
I can never keep straight which is which. I always tell my SO it's because of the German/English thing but I think my brain just doesn't compute that they are two different things. (I'm constantly asking for Calamine tea - lol.)

Rita Chamomile is adorable! I had removed Chamomile from my list but I might have to tuck her away somewhere for Rita.
