I've only heard it pronounced gar-DEEN-ya. [noted -ed]

"Gardenia" 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).

Pretty name, but a bit pompous.

It's pretty, but it seems too weird to be a name.

In Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum, there was a gym leader named Gardenia. She used Grass-type Pokémon.

I think this name is rather lovely, although the name would be most likely abbreviated to Dina/Dena or something like that, which is a shame because I think it's quite nice as it is. :)

In the book, The Man Who Loved Clowns (which is my favorite book of all time!), Avanelle's mom is named Gardenia.

Pretty, but nowadays people seem to be associating it with the Pokemon character. The "deen" sound in the middle isn't that nice, either.

I normally don't like many flower names because they sound so prissy, but this one is actually kind of cute. It sounds very pretty, but would make a better middle name.

I say it as Gar-Dee-knee-uh.

What a gorgeous, beautiful, perfect, and strangely--yet fortunately--rare name.
