  1. Reblogged this on My Inner MishMash and commented:
    So many cool names here. 🙂 I really like amarantha and Azalea. I remember that when I was younger I wanted to call my future daughter Amarantine in honour of Enya’s album, and then I realised there is a name amarantha and fell in love with it. I also love our Polish form of Azalea, which is azalia, though it’s rarely used as a name.
    Which are your favourites?

  2. Hopping over from My Inner MishMash to add my comment here too. I like Acacia. I like the synesthetic colors the word creates, as A and C are each a different shade of yellow.

  3. I would use Amaryllis.
