    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

    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.
