Personal Impression
Gardenia is super pretty. It sounds like the name of a magical land in a fantasy series.

Seems rather strange that it's a flower name, but doesn't actually come from the word garden. Illogical coincidence.

I love this name right now. I would use Gardenia. I also love Gardenia flowers, so that a good association for me.

What a gorgeous, beautiful, perfect, and strangely--yet fortunately--rare name.

I say it as Gar-Dee-knee-uh.

I normally don't like many flower names because they sound so prissy, but this one is actually kind of cute. It sounds very pretty, but would make a better middle name.

Pretty, but nowadays people seem to be associating it with the Pokemon character. The "deen" sound in the middle isn't that nice, either.

In the book, The Man Who Loved Clowns (which is my favorite book of all time!), Avanelle's mom is named Gardenia.

I think this name is rather lovely, although the name would be most likely abbreviated to Dina/Dena or something like that, which is a shame because I think it's quite nice as it is. :)

In Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum, there was a gym leader named Gardenia. She used Grass-type Pokémon.

It's pretty, but it seems too weird to be a name.

Pretty name, but a bit pompous.

"Gardenia" could have a nameday on Palm Sunday. Palm Sunday (the Sunday before Easter) is the day of flowers and willows (the names of the other trees also have a nameday).

I've only heard it pronounced gar-DEEN-ya. [noted -ed]
