  1. We chose the name Azalea, because we wanted a flower baby! We also wanted her to have a multitude of nicknames. My favorite is Zaylee.

  2. My daughter is a spring baby, born in April. I wanted an uncommon name that would stand out for our first born. I’m an avid reader of romance and young adult genres, and one name that stood out from a book I was reading at the time was Lazalea- my husband did not like this name because he thought it sounded too much like the word Lazy. Later I was reading another book where a scene was described specifically naming a bush called an Azalea bush, I didn’t know what flower that was so I looked it up. Beautiful flower name, for a beautiful flower and it bloomed in different colors. Both my husband and I were set on this girl name and when we saw her face for the first time, it was a perfect fit.

  3. Azalea got her name after we gave out little azalea buds at her baby shower. We had told everyone she was baby “A”, since we thought we would name her Autumn. Someone asked if her nameveas goingbtk be Azalea thinking we were being clever at the baby shower. Once we heard it we loved it, and Autumn seemed too sweet for our feisty little girl who kicked mom constantly in the womb. Azalea fits her much better. We do have to say it multiple times when introducing her to new people but the name has many nicknames; hers are Zalea, Zales, and Zozo.
