American children will recognize Prunella as a character in the TV show Arthur. She is a grade above the titular character, is interested in yoga, psychics, and the paranormal, and is often somewhat condescending.

I think this is a really old-fashioned but lovely name. I think this name has always reminded me of dew-covered, grassy fields and traditional home cooking for some reason. But now, whilst this name also reminds me of these things, it more strongly reminds me of Prunella vulgaris (the self-heal plant), which was used traditionally in many ancient Northern-European doctrines of medicine, and general herbal remedies, used to cure illness or general minor ailments.

Prunella Scales is cool, but I find the name so darn unattractive!
