Columbine School; this was where a shooting took place in 1999.

Columbine is a really pretty name.

I agree that this name is quite pretty, as well as being Colorado's state flower.

This reminds me of the Columbines, I believe that they are crypts underneath Paris, not all too sure though.

It's the Catacombs that are under Paris, not Columbines. I never would have thought of this as a name.

It wouldn't be such a bad name, if I didn't immediately associate it with the Columbine High School massacre of 1999.

This is a really nice name. But the connotations to it are too strong to ever actually use it.

All I can thing about is the school shooting in 1999.

All I can think about is school shootings but this might actually make a cool name for an evil character in a book or movie.

In legend, Columbine was the name of Harlequin's lover, the daughter of old Pantaloon. I personally like the name.

This is a beautiful name, but the most I could ever use it is as a middle name, since as a first name it has, as other users pointed out, too many negative connotations (especially in America). It would make a great name for a character, though--especially if the story is historical.

This name sounds nice, but it has the horrible association with the 1999 school shooting. Colombina (which is prettier) might be a safer choice.

A lovely flower, but unfortunately unusable due to the school shooting. I'd love to be able to use it.
