From the experts:
This flower name was one of the most popular in her class in the seventies and eighties (in the 1989 movie Heathers, every snobby girl in the high school clique bore that name), but now, though still pretty and evocative of the Scottish moors, it has faded in favor of other purplish blooms, having fallen to Number 982 after having been as high as Number 3 in 1975, when it was given to close to 25,000 girls.
