Thread: Josephine Zinnia?

Thanks, ladies! All the little issues with it seem a bit nitpicky to me--none of them really bother me if Josephine Zinnia really is the one--but I'm still not sure it is. And @mischa, it's actually Mirielle (MEER-ee-elle), not Mireille (mee-ray). It would be in honor of my great aunt, Muriel Cathleen. She went by Cathie, but I find Mirielle to be a sweet, more modernized version of Muriel. I like that it has the same beautiful meaning as Mireille, though. I like Mirielle a lot, but for some reason, I just can't get into Josephine Mirielle. I feel like I can't really get behind most combos with Josephine, actually. Josephine Zinnia is the closest I've gotten, and it's quite close to what I'm looking for, but at the same time, I don't really think it's "it." I would really love to know what "it" is, though, because this is getting frustrating.

Josephine Zinnia. I'm just not sure it's clicked, and I'm not sure it will click, completely. Not like some of my other combos have. I love my other combos so much, and I know without a doubt, that "this is it"--and I just don't have that with Josephine Zinnia yet. I feel like it may come with time, though, so I'm hoping it does, because I adore Zinnia, and I think it'd be so stunning to meet a little Josephine Zinnia!
I have thought about another quirky flower name... but so far, none have clicked to the degree that Josephine Zinnia does. I do like Camellia a lot (although I'm not sure about Josephine Camellia), but I have a coworker with the name, and I'm not sure I want to go there.
