    Humor me for a moment...

    For the past few weeks I've been wondering about Chamomile's suitability as a name. Not as a first name, mind you. I was thinking it would make a sweet middle name to a more modest first.

    Maude Chamomile was my initial thought. After 'haunting' me I've decided to add her to my long (maybe) future use list.

    What do you think?

    Could Chamomile [cam-oh-meel] be a quirky middle name to a modest first name? If you absolutely HAD to use the name, what would you use as a first?

    Thanks!

    Honestly, I do not think I could use Chamomile even for a middle name, it reminds me of having the chicken pox and having to put chamomile on my pox so I wouldn't scratch them, sorry. I do love the name Maude though!

    I get your association. But...I'm thinking you mean calamine lotion.

    Thanks!

    I can never keep straight which is which. I always tell my SO it's because of the German/English thing but I think my brain just doesn't compute that they are two different things. (I'm constantly asking for Calamine tea - lol.)
    For that reason alone I don't think I'd use it as a name. I do see the appeal though. Have you considered Camille or Camilla as a "legit" but very similar sounding name?

    Alaric - Anton - Cedric - Dexter - Erich - Felix - Hector - Hendrik - Leonidas - Victor

    I actually don't like Camilla or Camille at all. Silly, I know.

    Chamomile and calamine sould really similar and so they're easy to mix up. You weren't the only one!
