Butterfly Baby Names

I love butterflies - they always seem a bit like flying flowers - and I was wondering if their names could be used for naming humans! I know of the [name]Julia[/name] butterfly, and the [name]Virginia[/name].
Im curious to see what other names anyone can come up with, including things like translations of ‘butterfly’, such as [name]Mariposa[/name] in Spanish. :slight_smile:

Parvaneh ( par va nuh) is butterfly in Persian
[name]Nova[/name] is a girl’s name of Native American origin meaning “chases butterfly,”
[name]Cassius[/name] [name]Blue[/name] [name]Butterfly[/name]. Caparina; a type of butterfly.

Types of butterfly not already mentioned:
Eurema (one species that visits my garden is the Eurema [name_f]Brigitta[/name_f] - a whole girls name right there! There is also Eurema Zoraide)

i think [name_f]Vanessa[/name_f] is a really pretty name! it is a species of butterfly that is very feminine and lovely!

[name_f]Butterfly[/name_f] itself is also a name, although it may be a bit too hippyish for your liking.
