Too flowery for an American boy? That's the most ridiculous thing I've ever read on here. So names with -son for girls are fine, but a boy can't have a "flowery" name? Seriously?

I think it's a lovely name. If you can give tree names like Laurel, Ash, Cypress and Birch to boys, then why not a name with a flowery meaning too?

I know right love the name, but the description didn't hit me right. Who wrote it?

It is not too flowery for an American boy. The sexist name descriptions have got to stop.
