Rosebeth Says:


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?

EW314 Says:


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?

Zelliew Says:
