Magnolia Name Meaning

Magnolia refers to a species of flowering trees that exist in North America. Charles Plumier, a French botanist, explored this tree in 1703 and named it after another botanist called Pierre Magnol. As far as the meaning of Magnol is concerned, we did not find any concrete definition or historical etymology that would help us determine the meaning. It is possible that Magnol is related to "magna" which means "great".  The Magnolia trees are the state trees of Mississippi. They are famous for being gorgeous and splendid. Its transformation to a given name happened in the 19th century when it became fashionable to name girls after flowers.

In U.S Magnolia experienced its peak in the late 1800s and early 1900s. As it was mentioned before it was very trendy at that time to name girls after flowers. Over the past 100 years, Magnolia has never been as popular as names such as Rose, Violet, Lily, and Daisy but it still managed to have moderate levels of popularity. By the start of the 20th century the mentioned trend died down and as a result, Magnolia, like other flower names, experienced a decline. In 1940, Magnolia fell off the U.S naming charts and still hasn't been able to get back to the lists. As far as pet names go, Maggie can be a great pet form of Magnolia.
