I chose [name_f]Iris[/name_f], also [name_f]Iris[/name_f] was one of my fave characters from a book, and [name_f]Rosemary[/name_f] was her bitchy sister. Though I have to admit that [name_f]Rose[/name_f] makes a perfect middle to practically every name, and I had a hard time deciding.

[name_f]Iris[/name_f], definitely. There’s so much meaning & history in it, plus it’s much less common (than [name_f]Rose[/name_f]) which I love.

I went with [name_f]Rose[/name_f]. Although [name_f]Iris[/name_f] is a favourite of mine, it’s more for the meaning it has to me rather than its prettiness, which I think [name_f]Rose[/name_f] slightly wins on.

[name_f]Iris[/name_f]. For me

[name_f]Iris[/name_f] - strong
[name_f]Rose[/name_f] - feminine.

Plus, I think the flower iris is prettier than the rose.

[name_f]Iris[/name_f], definitely! I’m not the hugest [name_f]Rose[/name_f] fan, even though I like [name_f]Rosie[/name_f] a lot. I love [name_f]Iris[/name_f], though.

[name_f]Rose[/name_f]! I absolutely adore this name. Though, [name_f]Iris[/name_f] is stunning as well…
