Narcissa Origin and Meaning

The name Narcissa is a girl's name of Greek origin meaning "daffodil".

This Greek flower and mythological choice doesn't make it into the pantheon of possibilities because of its association with narcissism. But narcissa is December's flower of the month, so Narcissa and Daffodil theoretically make perfect names for December babies.
