I'm trying to find a flower (A pretty one) that I can name my online petite women's clothing shop after. There are so many already being used. I've looked for flower names that would go with "Closet" , "Petites" " Place" ... I was hoping to find a name that had some kind of meaning for the word small or petite. It needs to be a catchy name. Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance...Debbie

when i was looking up these names, i found some cool baby names like May, Lily, Rosemary, Sunny, things like that so now i'm thinking of these fabulous names with such enthusiasm. i'm a writer and the only reason i'm on this site is to name a character. before i came here i couldn't find any name that fit this characters personality. then i found Lily, and May. WHICH ONE SHOULD I CHOSE? IF YOU SEE THE SUBMIT BOX THEN SUMBIT A NAME AND I'LL TAKE A VOTE. WHEN MY BOOK IS PUBLISHED YOU'LL KNOW ON PAGE 159 WHAT I CHOSE! LOOK FOR THE BOOK PROUD IN STORES! VOTE PLS! VOTE PS :)
