  1. Dahlia is my first child, I spent forever trying to come up with a unique name. Low and behold a trip to Lowe’s where I saw the flower and I fell in love. She is my flower baby and nature girl.

  2. I wish we had a cool story about how we ended up with this name. It wasn’t on our list and it took us three days after she was born to officially declare it. It’s the only name that suited the way she looked. We called her a bunch of names but nothing fit like this one.

    For those who don’t know, a Dahlia is a type of flower. They’re beautiful and the name itself is definitely unique, which is great. However, the biggest frustration in hindsight is pronunciation. There are three ways to pronounce it. D-Al-ee-yah (American), Day-lee-yah (British), Daw-lee-yah (Hindu). We say it the American way but the other two are the most common ways other people pronounce it. I fear she will get frustrated spending the rest of her life correcting people or just accepting incorrect names. But, even with all that said, I still can’t picture her with any other name.

    • It can be pretty frustrating when people can’t get my name right but i don’t know a lot of people with the name so it makes me feel different.

  3. Dahlia was my favorite flower throughout college. I had a beautiful purple and white one growing on my balcony and I just knew that I would name my little girl that one day.
