Azalea Meaning and Origin

Azalea is a stunning underused flower name that’s a fabulous alternative to popular monikers like Rose and Lily. It sounds feminine and lovely but looks and sounds somewhat exotic. The nicknames Aza or Lea are great too. The name Azalea is a girl’s name meaning “dry” and is of Greek origin. Derived from Ancient Greek (azaléos, “dry”). The given name Azalea is a modern coinage for a name of a flowering shrub, named after the feminine form of Greek azaleas. The Azalea flower symbolizes temperance, fragility, passion, and, in China, womanhood. A famous bearer of this name is Australian singer Iggy Azalea, born Amethyst Amelia Kelly.
