    Some Unusual Flower Names

    I was going through my long lists of nature names and came across some Latin flower names and I thought I'd share. I think all of these are usable, but I'd love to hear opinions or any unusual flower names you have.

    Cataria -- with the nn Cat or Kitty. Could also have Tia or Ria or Cata.
    Indivisa -- Could have Indi, India, Nia, Dia, Via, Sia, Disa, Nisa, Niva...
    Lunaria -- This is my favorite. Could have Luna, Nia, Ria, Lara
    Nolana -- Could have Nola, Nana, Lana, Noa
    Setaria -- Could have Settie, Etta, Ettie, Tara, Tia, Ria, Sia, Seta, Sera...
    Stellata -- Stella, Lata
    Tiarella -- Tia, Ria, Lia, Rella, Ella, Elle, Ellie
    Tithonia -- Tithie, Toni, Tona, Nia, Tia, Thia
    Velutina -- Vel, Vela, Tina, Tia, Via, Lia
    Venosa -- Ven, Vennie, Vea

    So, thoughts?

    I really like the flower name Dahlia. I'm not sure if that's considered an usual name though. I've never seen it used before. :3

    "While some of the brightest of our celestial bodies are actually extinct now, their energy long since cooled; miraculously, because they float in the heavens so far away from us now, their beautiful light will continue to shine on us forever, and the glow will be so bright, it'll warm your heart, it'll make your eyes glisten, and it'll make you think to yourselves; what a concept"

    I once used Corylus Colurna for the name of a character in a story I wrote long, long ago. It's Latin for Hazel which is what he went by. And yeah, he was a guy, lol.
