I did not even know this name even existed until I came across it, quite by accident, while I was surfing the web (big surprise...).

I LOVE this name, it's so beautiful and graceful.

This is a cool name. I've never heard it before. I could think of some cute nicknames too.

I really adore this name. For some reason tasteful flower names for little girls has been something I have always loved. I would most definitely name my daughter Zinnia. As a nickname I would call her Zinni or Zee. If I had a perfect picture in my mind for what a person named Zinnia would be like would be beautiful, courageous and funny.

Really ugly name. Being named after a flower would annoy me.

In Danny DeVito's movie 'Matilda', Zinnia Wormwood is the terrible and rather ignorant mother of Matilda Wormwood. Matilda is an intelligent little girl who is capable of doing telekinesis. The movie is based on the novel by Roald Dahl.

I find this name to be really beautiful. I think more obscure flower names such as this (and Amaryllis, Azalea, Dahlia, Linnaea, etc.) are terrific alternatives to overused flower names like Daisy, Lily, or Rose (my middle name).

I agree that this is a nice alternative to overused flower names. The 'Z' makes it feisty.

I like this name a lot. It sounds beautiful, unique, and quirky. :)

This name is beautiful, it's always a shame when a name is used for someone who is evil or mean in the bible or movies, such as 'Matilda', why can't people use unusual names (or make up names) so people don't feel like evil people.

I always liked flower names. This name sounds and looks pretty, and the flower is pretty too! :)

I think this is rather a nice name, quite pretty and underused but it should be used more. :)

Zinnias symbolize lasting affection and goodness. This is a guaranteed good name for a little girl.

I really really love this name but now it seems to be popular.
I am thinking about naming my child Zinnia Dahlia or Dahlia Zinnia.

This is very fun, spunky-sounding name after the colorful flower. I just don't like that the etymology is after a botanist. I would like to know what the name "Zinn" means.
Tiger Lilly  6/24/2013
The name Zinnia was given to 53 baby girls born in the US in 2012.

Since this comes from the name "Zinn" I googled the meaning of Zinn and found out it means "metonymic occupational name for a worker in pewter" and is apparently of German and Jewish origin.

Zinnia is the name of a character in Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire.
Buneary  12/31/2014
I love how only one person commented saying that it's the name of a really interesting Pokémon character. Zinnia is a really uncommon name and I'm surprised that more people haven't said it.

I like Z names, because of the nickname Z, and they are typically uncommon and cool. This is a perfect example.
