I always imagine a pinched, pointy person when I hear this name - no doubt because of the Harry Potter influence.

I think this name is too comical and unattractive for a person. In my opinion it would make a good name for a pet. I picture a little yippy dog or a pet rat when I hear this name. :)

Petunia reminds me of a plump cheerful woman with a cheerful desposition. There was a lady like that I knew. Offered me cookies everytime I went to her house.

Makes me think of a sad, lonely person who has a rotted bouquet of flowers in the middle of her dining room table and she wears the same old wrinkled blue dress everyday.

I dislike this name and the way it sounds, and because of Harry Potter's aunt, I don't think anyone will be using this name for their child very soon.

I doubt people are going to be put off this name by the children's 'Harry Potter' series. Not everyone cares for that book enough to know the names of all of the characters. Petunia is a fine name.

968 Petunia is the name of a minor planet [asteroid] orbiting the sun.

Many of these asteroids have fantastic names, actually.

The name Petunia comes from the South American word "petun", which means "tobacco", in the Tupi language.

I hate this name. Reminds me of Harry Potter's cruel aunt, one of my least favorite characters.

Yuck, yuck, yuck. This isn't a good name at all. It's so sour and pompous sounding.

It sounds too similar to 'spitoon' for me. Then there's Petunia from Harry Potter. A lovely flower, a horrid name.

Sounds like a slave name to me.
