    To be honest to sound truly Hunger Games to me I would include a lot more unlikely botanicals repurposed as names, like Katniss and Rue and Primrose and... etc.

    But there are some cool names here. I will go with the ones I especially like.

    If you don't hate me for it I will also come back with a list of new plant names afterward.

    Noemi - Dark hair, very long. Dark eyes with long lashes.
    Victory - Medium brown hair, wavy. Extremely light icy-blue eyes, the sort that look almost clear, with darker striations.
    Fiona - Fionas are always redheaded in my imaginings, but Fiona does not seem very Hunger Games to me at all.
    Ingrid - Slim, almost pointy looking, hair up in a bun like a ballerina, but harder than you'd expect. No pushover.
    Ursula - Tall, curvy, a bit soft-looking but quite strong underneath that softness. Blue eyes, brown-sugar hair, upturned nose. Looks younger than they are.
    Azure - Good name, like this a lot. Not sure what an Azure looks like though, leaning towards short very black hair with bangs.
    Ruby - This is just a trendy name where I live. So I picture a cute toddler and nothing else. I would probably make a Ruby a main character's grandmother or baby sister rather than the main character themselves.
    Leanne - A fat woman who's fifty with improbably drawn on eyebrows.
    Araceli - Eyes two different colours. Thick hair that's a very dark brown to almost black but with red notes in it.
    Liberty - Hair up in a braided bun with ribbon braided in. Strong looking in a tall lean way, not too blocky.
    Opal - Blue-gray eyes. Very pale skin, blue veins at eyelids and temples. Very china-doll looking. Dark hair.
    Ivy - Golden brown hair lit with red. Gold-green eyes. Muscle definition.
    Astrid - Do you know the sort of hair that is very light but so cold and lacking yellow that it doesn't really read as blond so much as icy greige-taupe? I picture an Araceli in Hunger Games as looking almost desaturated. White skin, greige hair, gray eyes. Beautiful but strange looking.
    Barley - Ha, a plant name and pretty perfect for the setting. Picture reddish hair cut short, a wide generous mouth and a stubborn chin.
    Blythe - Blond, eyes that change colour in the light.
    Fern - Soft curly hair that's long and not too perfectly ringleted. A bit wild-looking. Freckles.
    Amethyst - White skin, dark hair, pale limeade green eyes, small mouth. Looks softer and sweeter than they are, no muscle lines.
    Blaze - Very short hair. Excellent bone-structure. Lean body, no fat anywhere, and no softness.
    Zakia - Short but a bit chesty. Black hair. Huge dark eyes.
    Mara - Copper brown hair.
    Laurel - Ice blond, green eyes.
    Aurora - Small girl, short. Pixie haircut.
    Asha - Black hair, dark eyes, beautiful dark skin. Tall and graceful. Hair might be in long meticulous dreads.
    Bryonie - Bryony would be much nicer spelt this way, and a plant name. I picture tall with light brown hair sun-streaked to blond, and long coltish legs, a very thin girl with long skinny limbs and long skinny nimble fingers.
