    Flowers with potential to be a name

    Hi berries,

    I am trying to compile a list of offbeat flowers/floral names that could have potential as a name for a girl (especially as a middle)

    So far I have:

    Alyssum
    Celandine
    Celosia
    Linaria
    Phlox

    Feedback and suggestions very welcome!

    I quite like Celandine.

    My favourite offbeat flower name is definitely Zinnia.

    I actually know a Lobelia! Suits her perfectly and have known her so long I forget it's a 'not a name' name!

    Leuca is a species of flower/plant I think and is a nice (and possibly feminine) alternative to Luca.

    Not sure if this counts, but my favorite underused plant name is Amaranth. I love the meaning (one that doesn't wither)
