Underrated Flower Names

I so wish [name_u]Larkspur[/name_u] was considered “usable” for a boy. I don’t see any reason why I shouldn’t. It’s robably my #1 guilty pleasure.

This is a tree not a flower, but Larch. Maybe not irl but definitely in fiction.

‘Underrated’ flower names are my guilty pleasures!

There was a book I read in the seventh grade based on the twelve dancing princesses and all the girls were named after flowers, some of my favourites were: [name_f]Azalea[/name_f], [name_f]Clover[/name_f], [name_f]Delphinium[/name_f], [name_f]Evening[/name_f] [name_f]Primrose[/name_f], Goldenrod “[name_f]Goldie[/name_f]”, Hollyhock “[name_u]Holly[/name_u]”, and [name_f]Jessamine[/name_f]

Some others I love that I believe are severely underrated are: [name_f]Calla[/name_f] [name_f]Lily[/name_f], [name_f]Edelweiss[/name_f], [name_u]Larkspur[/name_u], [name_f]Lavender[/name_f], [name_u]Lotus[/name_u], and [name_f]Peony[/name_f]

Dahlia is my favorite :heart_eyes:

I also love [name_f]Violet[/name_f] but I dont think its underrated - been quite popular.

I also like [name_u]Aster[/name_u], [name_f]Iris[/name_f], and [name_f]Calla[/name_f].

I feel like I want to like [name_u]Lotus[/name_u] - would be a cool but brave name.

I knew a family growing up in the 80’s and their kids were named Dande [name_m]Lion[/name_m] (a girl), [name_f]Clover[/name_f], and [name_u]Levi[/name_u]. I thought they had the most amazing names ever! Dande just went by Dande without the [name_m]Lion[/name_m]. I think Dande [name_m]Lion[/name_m] would be a super cool boy name!!
