Okay, I got it from Anne Rice. But look, I was 15 and in a very vulnerable place. I can't really think of why I like this. Maybe it's that your child will never, ever meet another Antha. It's got an air of fragility about it without being wimpy or frilly.

Antha is a genus of moths of the Noctuidae family. As a name, it is probably derived from the Greek anthos meaning "flower." This root gives us names such as Anthea, Ianthe and Calantha.
