    WDYT of Rhodora?

    I was studying for the SAT 2 Lit exam that's next week when I came across the poem "The Rhodora" by Ralph Waldo Emerson. It made me wonder why Rhodora isn't considered as a name option for girls along with other flower names. It has the -dora ending like nameberry favorites Pandora and Isadora, and its first syllable is cute as well. The poem gives it some literary depth and the flower's beautiful. I was surprised when I searched it on here to see that it's only been mentioned once. So, what do you think?

    Actually I kind of like it. I had no idea that it was a flower...or a poem...in fact I had never heard of it before. I could definitely see it working, though I do prefer Rhonda or Rhoda. I would never personally use any of the three, but I would like to see them used.
