Comments for PEONY:

I like peonies, but I don't like the sound of their name and could never name a child this.

I like the spelling, but the pronunciation is just horrible! I reminds me of someone peeing down their knee! But, peony is a scent from BATH AND BODY WORKS, and it smells SO GOOD! I have it on right now!

I pronounce it "PAY-oh-nee".

Horrible name. I love peonies but not this name. No offense to the unlucky Peonies out there.

I read this as 'Pony' by mistake often. I like it. It's a sweet name.

Sweet, but I still hate this name, especially how it's spelled.

Sorry about the above comment. This name is actually growing on me, and I like it now! It's cute but serious at the same time. :)

I dislike the sound of this name. For some reason, it reminds me of a horse's whinny. Plus, I find most flower names tacky.

I often like flower names, and the Peony is a beautiful blossom.

But as a name, this is horrible. I just can't get over the PEE sound at the start.

I keep thinking the nickname for this will end up being Pee-pee.

I will not mislead and say that this is a cute, or even moderate, name. It simply will not fit into English speaking countries. Especially considering the pronunciation-- which unfortunately resembles "Pee-On-Me" a bit too closely for my taste.

As a general rule: nature names have no place in the professional world. Meaning, it will not boost your career if you bear the title "Spring."

I have never heard this pronounced "PEE-a-nee". My mom pronounces it "Penny" and I've heard someone call it "pee-O-nee".

I know a very nice girl named Peony, and while, as a synaesthete, the colours are quite nice, I still quite dislike the sound of it. She pronounces it pee-O-nee.
