Comments for MAGNOLIA:

The Magnolia is the state flower of Louisiana. It's one of my favorite flowers; they smell so good! I actually like this as a name. Maggie and Noli would make cute nicknames for it in my opinion.

I like magnolias as trees/flowers, and as a name it's interesting. It sounds too stately and dignified to me though.

The name of a movie directed by Paul Thomas Anderson.

This is a pretty name because of the flower, but Maggie wouldn't be a good nickname because people would assume it was Margaret.

"Love of nature" is the symbolic meaning of the Magnolia flower. Also, Magnolia trees were valued for their longevity, and the dried bark was used in folk medicine.

According to http://forvo.com/word/Magnolia, the name is pronounced "mahkh-NO-lee-ah" in Dutch and "mang-YO-lee-ah" in Italian.

I think this name needs a nickname, and there are many possibilities: Maggie, Nola, Noa, Nia, Mia, Mimi, Lia, Manola, Nol (say "knoll"), Lola, Mo, Malia, etc.

A big and beautiful rare name. I salute anyone brave enough to use it.

I'm starting to like the sound of Indigo Magnolia.

This is a very nice name. I like it so much I named the protagonist in my story Magnolia, although she is called Mag. Like my character, I think Magnolia fits a baby, toddler, kid, teen, and adult.

Magnolia is a strong name, it's a little bit over the top girly, but it has a wonderful meaning. Magnolia is okay with the nicknames Mag, Maggie, Nola, Nolia, Lia and Noli.

Someone above me said Maggie wouldn't be a good nickname because people would think it was Margaret, but wouldn't that be a nice surprise? "Hi, I'm Maggie." "Short for Margaret, right?" "No... Magnolia." "Wow, that's so pretty!" It would be totally unexpected!

I personally am very fond of flower names. There is just something about Magnolia that is strong and elegant, yet soft and sweet. The name is gorgeous! A good nickname is Nolee.

Er, no. This name is very ugly and harsh sounding, like the name Petunia. Skip it.

The main (woman) character in the old movie "The Apple Dumpling Gang" was named Magnolia and called Dusty most of the time.

I find the name Magnolia quirky, elegant, beautiful, and whimsical. It's a new favorite of mine (so new I just added it to my list last night!). I think Maggie is a precious nickname, and Nola is sweet, too.

I think this name is just lovely. It's different and feminine. A beautiful "flower" name. It's a character in the play/movie "Showboat." It's on my name list. I think Maggie, Nola/Nolie, or Lia would be a wonderful nn. Love!

It's the sweet name of a very beautiful song by J.J. Cale. A useful slow, "Magnolia" is a fresh song and we feel the finesse and the lightness of his name when we listen it.
For me, this name is beautiful, thanks to this song.
