Thread: Amaryllis

    Amaryllis

    Okay, I've been kicking this name around a lot and am considering adding it to my list. I think it's pretty, and the flowers are gorgeous. Thoughts on the name? Too out there? What might make a good brother or sister for someone with this name? I do like Evangeline as a possible sister, but I am coming up blank otherwise.

    I like it, particularly for the symbolism behind it and meaning.

    If I were using it as a first name for a child, I'd probably name her siblings other botanical or mythological names.

    I actually just met someone with this name recently. It was the first time I had ever heard of it. She is in her early thirties and goes Lilly sometimes as a nickname. I like it! Amaryllis is different but not unheard of as a word, just creative enough without being crazy.

    I think Amaryllis is gorgeous. It's on my longer favorites list. It's definitely out there, but not unusable. Evangeline is okay, but it sounds a little too different stylistically to be something I'd use personally.

    I love the name Amaryllis and Evangeline Snow would go perfect with it. Both sound whimsy but regal if that makes sense. Some other sisters to Amaryllis could be:

    Georgiana
    Persephone
    Delphine
    Margot
    Calais
    Olivine

    As for a brother I think something edgy and masculine would be nice. Jonah and Amaryllis sound great together by the way.

    Boone
    Hawthorne
    Fletcher
    Sullivan
    Crispin
    Isaiah
    Stellan
    Jethro

    I hope that makes sense, I do know what I think goes others don't.
