Astilbe/Obscure floral names
What do you think of using the flower name Astilbe for a girl? I like the feminine, floral association with the less overtly girly sound. I have before looked at names like Asphodel for this reason, but I felt like that was too much while Astilbe feels more subtle and sophisticated, less like a costumey/flashy name that could possibly lean stripper. Do you agree with this? Is Astilbe too unfamiliar? Would you know how to pronounce it? Opinions appreciated.
