My great grandmother on one side was named Violet Pansy, and I had a great grandmother on the other side named Myrtle Clara. My aunt was given Violet as a middle name, and her daughter gave it as a middle name to her daughter. I always liked Violet, and since I was my great grandmother's caregiver feel a connection to it. I also like Rosemary since I could combine my grandmother's name and a favorite flower, and Lily.

Umm… Alyssa and Melissa are not flower names. Alyssa is a form of Lisa, which is a diminutive of Elizabeth (dedicated to God) and Melissa means honey bee. Nice try, though.

Viole... Violets.Mommy

We have a Violet, she is 5 now. It's funny that people love the name now because boy did everyone hate when I named her Violet. I almost changed it to Delaney out of peer pressure. Luckily I didn't...she is such a Violet.

They're okay. Rowan has always been a girl name to me. Lena pointed out the ones that don't have anything to do with flowers already. 

manda... manda8894

I know someone who named one daughter Azalea and the other Delilah. I thought they are both pretty names. I aalao have a brother-in-law named Heath

Katie... KatieJumonville

Alyssa is derived from Asylum, which is a flower.

My oldest daughter's middle name is Rose, after her great grandma's middle name.
