leni_jess prompted me with Snuna: Bun series (of course), flowers (specific or general), home.

Unexpected, Full Stop (G; Snuna; 100 words): Luna makes a proposal. (This ficlet follows The Best Kind of Unexpected and is part of the Bun Series.)

Their home had been full of flowers ever since they'd learned that Luna was carrying a girl. Severus had rejected "Petunia" at once, banishing them from their vases. He'd left the violets alone but hadn't approved the name. No matter what sort of rose, he hadn't acquiesced, but Luna had kept trying.

Betony, thought Severus, waking up to the purple flowers strewn over their bed. He turned to Luna. "But they'd call her her 'Betty'. I don't like that."

"But 'Betony Lovegood-Snape' is pretty, and the name means 'surprise'. You were surprised, weren't you?"

"Betony Lovegood-Snape?"

"Would you prefer 'Snape-Lovegood'?"

Thank you, that's lovely! Trust Severus to come up with an unusual name – and Luna to remind him of practicalities (and to pick the more euphonious surname).

And trust her to propose without proposing! ;)

It's lovely how Luna makes her suggestions and gets her way without confrontations and arguments.
