    Story of my life, this. In our case, there's the added element of finding a sweet spot amongst class associations with names - DH is adamant that it can't sound too pretentious. Options that DH and I have come up with for our own list are:

    Felicity
    Georgina
    Philippa (know this is popular in older women, but I don't know any little Pippas...)
    Zara

    Not sure if this helps as you've probably already discounted most of these because they're all still in regular use, but I hear you on wanting something classic and underused. Stalking this thread for the happy mediums!

    Sometimes the English trends frustrate me.. I have friends in America who are sometimes shocked to hear that names like Alice, Florence, Violet, Callum are so popular!

    I like Georgina, although I think I prefer Georgiana, and I think Zara is pretty too.

    Some more unique flower names:

    I have no idea if those are your style, but I thought I'd give it a try!
    Not expecting, just planning and building lists!
