Meaning:Yellow petaled flower
Dandelion is a gender-neutral name of French and Old English origin. The name of the vibrant yellow wildflower, Dandelion derives from the French dent-de-lion, meaning “lion’s tooth.” This refers to the jagged shape of the flower’s petals. Though rarer than other floral names like Daisy, Violet, and Rose, dandelions have many positive attributes that make them a worthy namesake. They’re edible and nutritious, and are used in traditional medicine and to make yellow dye. You may have once blown on a dandelion seedhead and made a wish. If baby is your wish come true, why not show it by giving them this cute and quirky name?
