    Thoughts on Verbena? MN?

    I have been name crushing on this name for awhile and the other day, my husband (who is a fellow name nerd) said that this is his number one choice for our next child if it is a girl (not pregnant or TTC as my son is only 5 months old and my daughter is 23 months). Anyway, I have been brainstorming this name with possible combinations and I am drawing a blank. The only thing that has come to mind is Verbena Eve (2 syllable LN ending in field). I'm not a huge fan of biblical names, however, as I am an atheist. I thought I would ask my fellow berries for thoughts and suggestions. I like a wide variety of names. My MN choices tend to be a little less "out there" than my FN choices, but completely out there names are not necessarily a no. No other botanical or nature name unless it is subtle (names like Lily Rose and Wren Winter are just unusable IMO). I don't mind alliteration. No kree'8tif names.

    Verbena has ALWAYS been a guilty pleasure for me. I can't imagine using it on a real baby, but I just adore it. I think Verbena Eve sounds stunning.

    Another possibility I am considering is Nesta. Nesta is the Welsh variant of Agnes, which was my dearly departed grandmother's name.
