Hunger Games Name

I'm fifteen and writing a Hunger Games fan fiction. It takes place after the last book and the main character is the daughter of Peeta Mellark and Katniss Everdeen. I named her Willow. I have many reasons for doing this. One is personal connections. My name is Alora Danin, which comes from the Movie/Book "Willow". It is also a reference to the song Katniss sang to Rue in the 74th Hunger Games: "Deep in the meadow, under the willow."
Characters in Panem are generally named after something that has to do with nature. Katniss and Primrose are both plant names, as is Willow. As another side note, I plan on naming my daughter Willow (:
You have a beautiful name, yourself! And a wonderful association for the name you have chosen for your daughter. It seems like you've put a lot of thought into it, and that is wonderful. Willow is a great name and I, too, am Hunger Games fan! May the odds be ever in your favor!
A Natural Name

My husband and I have been talking about names ever since we first found out we were expecting our second child. We had decided on Maggie for a girl, and now that we know for certain that we are expecting a daughter, Maggie it is. However, I recently read a celebrity baby name article where someone named their daughter Magnolia and called her Maggie for short. I LOVE the idea!-but, my husband isn't sure because our last name is Cobb. He fears she might be teased for being a Magnolia Cobb.
Does this name sound too "nature inspired"?
I absolutely love the name Magnolia and LOVE LOVE LOVE it combined with your last name. Magnolia Cobb is easy to spell and pronounce but put together is so distinctly unique it sounds like a very important person.
My opinion: Magnolia Cobb is an A+++ baby name. Run with it! And if you don't, let me know. I'll use it for a character in one of my books
