I love Elowyn.
For some reason I'm not a huge fan of nature names on boys. The ones that are out there are just too harsh to my ears for some reason.
Thankfully my husband loves Magnolia and Violet.
I also love lavender but could never use it, our last name starts with an L and it is just too much L.
Azalea and Zinnia are also great faves as well as Luna.
Olive and Hazel I would love to see on twins
Some of my favorites...... <3
