beachbear Says:


Not naming one's child Mimosa is like not naming one's child Gay. There is nothing wrong with either thing to which each word refers...but since those things are societally controversial, using those words as children's names is IMO a terrible idea.

Mhill46 Says:


Except for the fact that at least in America, the word Mimosa is EXTREMELY tied to the alcoholic beverage. It's all anyone would be able to think of. So that is definitely something to keep in mind when choosing a name

Bassilly Says:


Unfortunately, at least in the US, people would see this and think of the alcoholic beverage. Which isn't bad, but a weird thing to be named after. It'd be like naming someone Martini or Daiquiri or MaiTai.

Miri Says:


Mim would be a cute nickname!

Luísa Says:


I know some mothers (mine included) that call her daughters Mimosa. 'Cause in Portuguese, Mimosa can mean "adorable" or "sweet girl".

AnonymousPerson Says:


Mimi would make a sweet nickname.

Vespertinerose Says:


The name's etymology , the flower, and use as a first name all came before the Alcohol, so the statement in regards of the Alcoholic brunch, bears no substantial argument in the end. The name is quite Southern and equal to Magnolia, but still as fussy as a British Edwardian/Victorian era name as Hyacinth.

DryLake Says:


I really love this name. Will probably use it for a future pet-companion or character in a story.
