This name was used in Meredith Wilson's "The Music Man", for the cute little girl who takes piano lessons.

"Amaryllis" could have a nameday on Palm Sunday. Palm Sunday (the Sunday before Easter) is the day of flowers and willows (the names of the other trees also have a nameday).

What a pretty name! It's not common at all, also, that's a plus.

This is a great name! It is uncommon, yet not obscure, and if the girl bearing this name grew tired of it, she could always shorten it. The list of possible nicknames includes Amy, Mary, Maryl, Lissie, and many many more!

I know someone called Amaryllis who shortens her name to Lily because no one could ever get her name right!

I simply love this name! Have you seen the Amaryllis flower? It`s also known as the winter lily - a beautiful, half delicate, half strong, and noble flower. Like this name.

Very lovely name. Much better than Mary-Rose (having 'Mary' in it and being my first names). 'Lissy' sounds like a nifty nickname. Gosh now I wish this were my name, or at least my second name!

I knew a girl by this name. Only she pronounced it "ah-Mar-ri-yis".

I have heard it pronounced "am-a-rul-LEES", by someone with Greek family. I don't know whether that's the real Greek pronunciation or not, she didn't speak Greek herself.

So beautiful--delicate, yet also strong. I love it!

Simply put: Beautiful flower, ugly name. It's just too long and arrogant sounding for me.

I mostly like names that end with "a" but this is an exception. Amaryllis is such a beautiful flower anyway.

'Amy Amaryllis' is a 1992 children's fantasy novel by Australian author Sally Odgens.

Unusual, pretty name with a lot of nicknames.

I like it, but for some reason, it reminds me of sarsaparilla.

Amaryllis Marie-Louise Fleming (1925-1999) was a British cello performer and teacher. She was the half-sister of Ian Fleming, the creator of James Bond.

Now that is just pathetic. LOL! What could someone be thinking even putting it on a list of possible names for actual humans? What about Platipa? Or Trippet? Or maybe Wobblia? Those are actually better...
