I seem to have a thing for flower names, and I'm looking for some fresh ideas, I know there's lots of lists out there, but I don't know what ones could work as names (Seaflower appeared as a name once...but I can't imagine a little child being called Seaflower, or seeing Seaflower on a class attendance sheet).
The only one I dislike is Rose, as it's too plain, but I do have a thing for 'Rose' names - Rosetta, Rosamund, etc. so suggestions for them would be great too!
haley./twenty./still figuring things out.

Rosario, Rosalyn, Rosaline either line or lean ending
Rosary, Rosemarie....I tend to like the Marie at the end instead of Mary, it changed it more than I thought it would
Rosaria, Roseanne, Rosanna, and Rosette, or Rosetta
Juniper, Jade, Iris, Hyacinth, and Marigold
Calla, Carnation, Chrysanthemum, Begonia
Magnolia, Myrtle, Violet, Lily, and Oleander
Daisy, Hibiscus, Lilac, Zinnia, Dahlia, and Azaelia
Rosabel, Rosabeth, and to be honest, I'm not sure if those are names.

Dahlia is one of my favourite flower names! Such sass and femininity.
Amaryllis is lovely and intriguing, Iris is simple and strong, and Lilac is unexpected.
Bryony is another one of my favourites! I fell in love with it when I read Atonement.
ETA: And how could I forget Magnolia. One of my top names at the moment, it has a familiar sound that is quite elegant, but it still has spunk and character.

I have a huge, huge thing for flower names so I apologize if this post seems long or overblown.
My favourites include:
Azalea, Acacia, Amarantha
Betony, Bryony, Briar
Cassia, Cleome, Clary
Fern, Felicia - Felicia is a kind of blue marguerite.
Iris, Ivy, Ixora
Lily, Lilac, Liatris
Marguerite, Marigold, & Magnolia
Rosemary, Rimona - I think of Rosemary as separate from Rose...? More blue herbal. Rimona is
Viola, Violet, Veronica
Zinnia, Zephirine - Zephirine is cheating, but it's a variety of thornless rose of which I am fond.
Names with "rose" in them: My favourites are Rosamund and Rosalba. And Rosemary but I count it separate.
I didn't know if you'd count translated florals but if you do I'm fond of Cerise, Tamar, Jacinta, Shoshana, Nerida, Rhoswen, Lilwen, Gwenonwy, Ketzia, Rimona, Ione...? That runs the gamut of like six languages though.
