There's a song called "Lavender's Blue."

This is actually a pretty sounding name, very unique and delicate.

I think it's pretty.

"Lavender" 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).

Heather and Lavender would be good names for twins.

I have also seen it spelled Lavendar. I wouldn't suggest it though.

This might sound childish, but Lavender has been my favorite color since the 4th grade. I'm in College now. Besides the Harry Potter series, this name is also given to a girl in the movie "Matilda" - the young girl's closest friend and accomplice. While it may be TOO girly of a name, I've always liked the sound of "Athena Lavendar".

In the film Matilda her best friend is called Lavender.

I despise the smell of Lavender, and I don't really like it as a name either. Guess that is why.
-- Chloever33  8/12/2007
I hate how Lavender smells, but, actually, I think it's rather cute as a name.

I love this name, the flower, the smell, the feeling, the beauty of the name itself. Not to forget the beautiful color, either. I think this name would go well with Diana. I would consider this name for a character in a book I'm writing.

The smell of Lavender reminds me of my grandmother, who grew it around her house. I might name a daughter Lavender in her honor.

This is a darling name, though it may be difficult for a woman to carry. It would be a nice middle name.

Miss Lavender Lewis is a character in the "Anne" books by L.M. Montgomery. She is a sweet middle-aged woman who is still pretty and young at heart, and one of the teenaged Anne's "kindred spirits". She lives at Echo Lodge - a stone cottage that is always surrounded by Lavender.

Sweet old-fashioned name.

Lavender is my "Taylor Swift song" name - I know it's going to be poppy, corny and sentimental, but I can't help liking it, because it's also very pretty, positive and upbeat. I love the scent of Lavender, and it makes a beautiful name. I think Lavender sounds soft, light and delicate, and it has this old-fashioned charm.

Might work as a middle name... kinda cool =]
-- Chrila96  8/23/2010
In The Language of Flowers, Lavender means "Devotion" or "Distrust".

Lavender is a very pretty name, but it would be a little weird naming it after a color. I don't think I would like it if it was my name, but it's still a good name.

Nature names are horribly 1960s-70s-- the age of Hippies and all that is associated. Many flower names could go unnoticed to the general public due to the fact of incredibly unheard-of titles. "Lavender" is not one. Not only is it unprofessional, pretentious, childish, pompous, geriatric, and ornate-- it is ugly. Give your child a name that will aid her career, and one that she will thank you for. A Lavender Ferris, lawyer? Doctor? I am afraid not.
-- Francesca  5/3/2011
I think this name is gorgeous, by the way. I think a Lavender Ferris would make a fine doctor. Sorry. Just have to stick up for *my* opinion, too, ya know?

I love this name as a middle name but I don't think it would age very well as first name! If people use Lily, Violet, and Daisy why not Lavender? The comment above me is wrong, nature names are very trendy right now!

I think it's really nice in the flower, scent, and color associations, but it's a bit pompous and overly-modern as a name.
-- Black_X  7/28/2011
It's a very airy, girly name. It doesn't work on everyone, but when it does, it's amazingly pretty.
-- Evantastic  8/2/2011
I love this name... if I was to use it I would use Vennie as a nickname :)

Lady Patten, wife of British politician and BBC Trust chairman Lord Patten, is named Lavender.

If you really like the color purple, name your daughter Violet instead!
