    Mayflower

    As we were discussing baby names, someone suggested Mayflower to me. At first I thought it was ridiculous, and then I thought "that's kinda cute". So what do you think? Is it usable?

    I posted about this name long ago, or someone else did and I was smitten by it. I remember people had mostly negative reaction to it. The discovery & colonization of America and all...

    I like the concept, but it has bad connotations with the treatment of Native Americans.

    I prefer Wildflower
