    Time for Spring Names!

    Which of the springy names do you like best in this poll?

    Being a gardener, I am a sucker for plant names and loving color and gems, for those as well.

    They seem to wear better year-round than some of the more autumnal and wintry names (Christmas, November, etc.). Though some can sound too childlike as a girl ages.

    Any thoughts or additions?

    Iris, Azalea, Lilac, and Jonquil are probably my favourites of these for feeling like spring.

    I love Lily, but not as a nickname for Lilac. And lilies don't feel as spring to me as a lot of these other flowers, I guess because a lot of the kinds I like bloom in late summer? I'd probably only use Lilac as a middle name though, because it feels so sweet and pastel.

    I miss the pink spring magnolias, so I nominate Magnolia.

    Aviva is a name that means 'spring,' I've always liked it.

    Cerise means 'cherry' and the cherry blossoms are an amazing part of spring. I don't really like Hyacinth (as a name, love the flower) but I like Jacinta.

    I like Rain, actually. Makes me think of fresh spring rain bringing everything back to life.

    Azalea is gorgeous. I used to feel fairly neutral about it but it really is so beautifully exotic, and definitely a perfect spring name.
