Very beautiful name!
All I want to do is tell Gardenia what to do tonight...
From the song "Gardenia" by Iggy Pop, Gardenia reminds me of a character similar to Penny Lane from "Almost Famous."
I absolutely love this name!
This is a winner all around. Gardener for a boy (nickname Den), Gardenia for a girl. How cool is it to have the word garden in your name and be named for a scrumptious smelling flower?
I love it. Unusual flower names are the best!
This name is so beautiful. I plan on naming my child this. :)
I've met a nurse named Gardenia...totally makes the name usable in the real world for me! On an unrelated note, the other nurse assigned to our room was named Chester. Such refreshing names!
