I've been seeing a big interest in the name Plum on the forum recently. Whilst I think it is an endearing name, I myself would never use it... However I could easily see it as a quirky middle on someone else's child. I suggested to a parent that maybe Plumeria might be more usable as it is a flower name and flower names seem to be socially acceptable than fruit names (with some exceptions like Olive of course).
So is Plumeria usable? I think it is pretty and flowery but it is a very frilly name and maybe not a run-of-the-mill flower that alot of people would be familiar with.
I have no interest in Plum but I'm just curious as I like quirky names and Plumeria is cutesy to me.
As usual honest opinions are more than welcome.
Thank you to all who respond

I don't think Plumeria is usable. To me, Plumeria sounds like some sort of disease."Adopting one child won’t change the world: but for that child, the world will change." -- unknown

I'm generally all for weird flower names (I know the cutest little Forsythia) but I find the sound of this really strange. I don't say it with Plum in there. I say it like ploom-ehr-ee-ah. >.< I think it'd be a cool quirky middle, but would be strange up front.
On the plus side, it has lots of cute nicknames -- Plum, Pia, Lia, Ria, Meri, Maria, Lera, Peri...Mother, Hellenic Pagan Priestess, and Resident Greek name expert ^_^
