Stunning beautiful name.

An absolute gem of a name. So pretty.

I found this flower in an old nature book, "Nature's Playground" by Cordelia E. Leigh, and thought it would be a really, really pretty name. I was surprised that it has not been recorded in the US name registry at all since the beginning (1880), not even 5 births in a year. Here is a poem about the flower from the book:

"The poet Wordsworth wrote in praise of the small Celandine.

'Pansies, lilies, kingcups, daisies
Let them live upon their praises.
Long as there's a sun that sets
Primroses will have their glory,
Long as there are violets
They will have a place in story.
There's a flower that shall be mine,
Tis' the little Celandine.'"

It's okay. I don't really like it.

I love how beautiful and gentle this sounds, especially with a flower and bird association. It sounds kind of regal, but not modern day royalty regal, like the name of a beautiful magical princess from mythology.

Better than the increasingly popular Clementine. Both Celandine and Clementine sound "princessy" and timeless. However, Celandine is more elegant and rolls off the tongue more fluidly.

Celandine could have several nicknames: Cel, Cela, Celand (SEE-lənd), Celine, Landi, Andi, Dine, Dina, and more.

In the lore of J.R.R. Tolkien, Celandine Brandybuck is a hobbit lass of the Shire. Celandine Brandybuck was born in 2994 of the Third Age. She was the daughter of Seredic Brandybuck and Hilda Bracegirdle Brandybuck. She had two older brothers: Doderic and Ilberic. Celandine attended the Farewell Party of Bilbo Baggins in 3001.

More unique than Celestia. I'm considering this for a future daughter.

Celandine is the title of the second book in Steve Augarde's Touchstone Trilogy.

I think it's a beautiful, ethereal name. It's old-fashioned and now practically unused, which is a shame.

Sounds like the name of a princess. I didn't even know that it is a plant, because English is not my mother tongue. I think that the lighter pronunciation is much nicer.

When I first saw this name, I thought it was "Celadine" (SEL-uh-deen), which I like better. The "n" throws me off for some reason.

I do still find it nice, though. However, it reminds me of the word "calendar".

The celandine flower signifies "joys to come". I think that's a lovely meaning.

I agree with the above poster - it ought to be pronounced like Chelandine.

It's quite unusual, but quite nice really. :)

Maybe I'm just weird or something but I would have read this as CHEL-an-deen. That sounds a bit prettier in my personal opinion.

Celandine is one of the main characters in the fairy tale "Prince Featherhead and the Princess Celandine". I actually think that Celandine is an ugly name, but I like the fairy tale.

Delicate, lovely, fairylike and very rare! I've loved Celandine since reading it in a book as a child.

I think this would work much better as a middle name than as a first (in America, anyway - I'd be more inclined to use it as a first name if I lived in Europe). But it truly is lovely -- uncommon, delicate, and pretty.

It's the name of Rowan Hood's late mother in Rowan Hood: Outlaw Girl of Sherwood Forest - one of THE best books ever.

In ancient Greek mythology, Chelidon (swallow), was the sister of Aedon (nightingale), both daughters of Pandareos.
