That was my first thought! I don't understand how this could be a good boy's name, except that "orchid" is often associated with male genitalia and is used a lot in male genital conditions in the medical field, such as "cryptorchidism." But even with the male association, it still sounds very feminine to me, and when I think of flower names, sexist or not, I still think of girls first.
When I first clicked on it in comments I was expecting a girl`s name
Very pretty girls name
No! You have summed it up well
OK for a female, but I can't see it for a male. The world appears to have gone nuts.
Wait. This is an orchid. An orchid with a really flashy, feminine name, too. Am I being a blockhead? Because I really don't see how this crosses over to the boys' side.
Where did they dig up this name?
