So my latest name crush is Magnolia. There is just something about it I'm loving!

Maybe in the middle name spot...

Lucy Magnolia

Blythe Magnolia (Blythe is another name crush)

Or could I be brave and use it in the first name spot? ph34r.gif

So what do you think of Magnolia as a baby girls name?

I know someone called Magnolia, Maggie for short. I do prefer Lucy as a first name to Magnolia though so I would go with Lucy Magnolia Surname.

I like it but, in my mind, it only seems to suit Southern Belles.

Love it! It's been on my radar for a while now. Would have to be brave to put it in the fn spot, but I think its amazing in the middle and goes with most names.

I normally love flower names but Magnolia- not so much. I like nn Maggie- what about Margaret?? Or Magdalene?

I like it.

I knew a girl called Magnolia, she got Maggie as a nickname, which is cute too.

With the swag of "odd" names out there I would prefer to see Magnolia than most of them. It does have a nice sound and imagery. So it would work in the first name spot. But I think Blythe Magnolia is all kinds of wonderful.

I like it, only because I like that sort of stuff. Its got that granny chic vibe but I get a terrible keeping up appearances feeling from it too.

Posted 25 January 2013 - 02:38 PM

I don't mind it, mostly because I enjoy saying Maggie, Molly, Meg and associated names. But if I was going to go for the M-g sound I'd use Meg myself.

Wow your a bit rude aren't you? You've used names I wouldn't use either so needless to say I'm not too fussed by your opinion. Thanks for your input though.
Thanks to everyone else for your opinions, definitely something to think about. Ran it past DH tonight & think I'd only be able to get away with it in the middle name spot. We will see!

Think what you like but when other posters have said that it's awful or urgh or similar I would hardly be singling someone out and blowing my top at  roll2.gif.

It actually makes me  roll2.gif more.

It's a bit too frilly for my tastes.  I love the nn Maggie though, and I guess if you're not keen on Margeret it gives you that.  Just seems a bit much though.

I love it - especially with Blythe, which is another absolute favourite. First name! NN Maggie, or Mags!

This is like talking to myself - are you actually me, OP?!

#22 noi'mnot

Posted 29 January 2013 - 09:39 AM

I think it's a really beautiful name. I like it as a first name, it has lots of potential for nice nicknames, but works equally well as a middle name.

#23 Guest_Sunnycat_*

Posted 29 January 2013 - 09:43 AM

I don't love it. I like the Mag part but not the Nolia. I like Magdalene or Marigold more. It isn't awful but NMS. Maggie as a NN is awesome and I love Blythe!

#24 la di dah

Posted 29 January 2013 - 02:45 PM

I like it. I much prefer it to just Maggie or to Margaret.

I do like Marigold a bit more, but that's just because some people say Magnolia mag-nol-ee-uh and some say mag-nol-ya, I prefer the second way but the first seems more common in Oz, possibly?

I do admittedly like a lot of botanical names. Magnolia isn't in my top favourites but its not too far down the list either.

I like it!

Lucy Magnolia is very pretty.
