Hyacinth Origin and Meaning

The name Hyacinth is both a boy's name and a girl's name meaning "blue larkspur; precious stone".
Though it may not be as sweet and gentle as, say, Violet, the purple-hued Hyacinth still might hold some appeal for the parent seeking a truly unconventional flower name.

In Greek mythology Hyacinthus was a Spartan youth accidentally killed by Apollo, from whose blood sprang a beautiful and fragrant flower, and it is also the name of several saints.
