    Affadilla? What do you think.

    My Great great great great Aunt's name was Affadilla. She worked to help free slaves prior to the civil war. Do you think her name is usable today or is it just too daffy?

    I think it would be a cool name in the middle spot with a great story. Its a little much for a first name, IMO.

    Not a fan at all. Sounds like a strange nickname for Daffodil.

    I think it would make for a wonderful middle name with great honoring purposes behind it. While I wouldn't say it is unusable as a first name, it does seem a bit out there for me. On the other hand, the significance it has for you makes it hard to resist, so who knows. It has lots of nickname potential, I'm sure.
