Ok, this has gone too far

My sister has put off naming her orchid for…about a YEAR

Ideas cause I’m taking over naming her.

Haha, that’s awesome! What kind of names is she into?

I have no idea honestly…she is writing a short story with names [name_u]Willow[/name_u], [name_f]Kinsley[/name_f], [name_m]Donovan[/name_m], [name_f]April[/name_f], [name_f]Elsa[/name_f], [name_u]Harry[/name_u], and [name_f]Hallie[/name_f]…that should help?

Haha, I immediately thought you should call it “Our Kid” (British slang for younger sibling) :joy:

I’m not a plant expert but apparently orchids belong to the juss family so maybe [name_u]Jess[/name_u], [name_f]Jessica[/name_f], [name_m]Justin[/name_m], [name_f]Justine[/name_f]?

Other ideas…

Maybe [name_f]Orla[/name_f]? [name_f]Orla[/name_f] the orchid? Or [name_f]Georgia[/name_f] for [name_f]Georgia[/name_f] O’[name_m]Keefe[/name_m] (artist of famous “The [name_f]Orchid[/name_f]” painting) or some variation of [name_m]Carl[/name_m] ([name_m]Carl[/name_m] Roebelen was an orchid collector) like [name_f]Caroline[/name_f], [name_f]Carolina[/name_f], [name_f]Charlotte[/name_f] (famous orchid collector).

I would also love [name_f]Iolanthe[/name_f] [name_f]Petal[/name_f], but I’m not crazy about [name_f]Iantha[/name_f].

I love [name_f]Iolanthe[/name_f] with the pronunciation of eye-oh-lanth-uh instead of yo-lanth-uh. [name_f]Do[/name_f] you think it is okay to pronounce it like that?

I think it’s probably fine, especially as this is for a plant :wink: Although, I’ve always thought it ended as -ee not -uh.
