    Chinese girls names meaning "flower"??

    My husband and I have just had our 2nd daughter and we are struggling to think of a Chinese name for her. Hubby would like to keep the first two characters the same as our first daughter's, and then have a flower for the third character. Our first daughter's third character is "Lan" (orchid). We also like "Lin" (I think it's waterlily or lotus??). What other one character flowers are there that are used as girls names?

    Forgive my ignorance - I'm white and hubby is Chinese but he grew up oseas so he's at a bit of a loss as well... I thought I'd ask here to get some more ideas. I want to get my daughter's birth cert but we can't until we agree on the Chinese name!!

    Thanks in advance :)

    its 芙蓉 in chinese. Otherwise, you can try 丹 to represent the peony. this is not as common though.

    Thanks so much for all your help :) We decided on a name based on suggestions from geobaby - I really appreciate all your help! Will have to revisit this thread if we have a third girl in the future ;)
