Carnation Origin and Meaning

The name Carnation is a girl's name meaning "complexion; coronation".

A popular flower, but as a name we don't expect it to reach the heights of Lily or Violet. Its origins are not entirely clear: it may come directly from the French word carnation "complexion" (because of the flower's pale pink color), or it may be a corruption of English "coronation".
