    Cute as a middle, but wouldn't use it as a first.

    I associate it somewhat with the Cate Blanchett character in the movie The Shipping News (based on the novel of the same name). The Petal in the movie was a crazy narcissistic slut, which is interesting considering the name is so sweet and delicate. She was also beautiful, tho, and could be very charming.

    The other association I have is the town where my in-laws live, about ten minutes from where I sit, Petal, Mississippi.

    Neither one of these things would keep me from using it, and I actually really like it as a middle name. I think it's very wearable, especially as a middle.

    Petal can be used but only as as quirky middle name.
    All the best,

    A little too cutesie for me. Would make a good name for a pony, puppy, bunny, kitty. Would also work in the middle name spot.
