Which of these names do you prefer?

[name]Hi[/name] there,

Our daughter (we already have an elder son and daughter) is nearly a week old and we are having real trouble agreeing on a name. Can you please vote on your favourite out of these:


It would also be helpful if you could let us know where you live, just to get an idea of how the names are viewed in different countries.

Thanks very much for your help!

Well, I guess it really depends on the names of your other children, but my favorite is either [name]Violet[/name] or [name]Thea[/name].

My favorites is [name]Violet[/name] because it’s classic and sweet. I also like [name]Iris[/name], but I always think of the iris of your eye, not the iris flower! Honestly, though, I think any of these names would work well.

I’m from the U.S., by the way. :slight_smile:

I think [name]Violet[/name] and [name]Thea[/name] are my favorite out of this list but they are all pretty. I live in the U.S.

My favourites are [name]Violet[/name] and [name]Thea[/name]. They’re both beautiful, feminine names. But I don’t know what your other kids’ names are, so I don’t know how they’d fit with your other children.

I think my favorite is [name]Violet[/name]. Class, sweet, lovely. Of course I don’t know how it goes with your other children but that would be my vote.

I would say my number 1 pick is [name]Iris[/name], then [name]Violet[/name], then [name]Thea[/name]. I’m from the USA.

I like [name]Flora[/name].

I like [name]Edie[/name], too, but only as a nickname for [name]Edith[/name].

violet or iris. [name]Flora[/name] is my middle name, and I’ve always hated it

I live in the US and I [name]LOVE[/name] [name]Flora[/name]!!!

My favorite is definitely [name]Violet[/name]. :slight_smile: It’s a personal favorite, I think it’s just charming. Sweet, feminine, lilting, vintage. [name]Iris[/name] is my second favorite, I just love irises, and it’s such a strong, striking, feminine name. I also really like [name]Flora[/name], and I love [name]Edie[/name], but only as a nn. I think either [name]Edith[/name] or [name]Eden[/name] (or even [name]Edina[/name] or [name]Edeline[/name]) would be fabulous ways to get to it. [name]Thea[/name] is nice, but the only one on your list I don’t 100% love.

I’m from the US. :slight_smile:

Good luck!

[name]Thea[/name] is my definite favourite from your list :slight_smile:

I live in New Zealand.

I live in Wales.
I likeViolet very much and Iris a close second. Iris has the literary connotations because of Iris Murdoch.
Both are pretty. I lean slightly towards Violet though.

[name]Thea[/name] is my favorite from your list. I’m in the US. Good luck!

LOL, we have VERY similar taste in names! [name]Iris[/name], [name]Violet[/name], [name]Thea[/name], and [name]Flora[/name] have all been on my own list at one time or another. My favorite in terms of the way it sounds is [name]Thea[/name]. Super cute, but I’m not sure how well it grows. [name]Iris[/name] is an all-time favorite in terms of originality. There will be little chance of another [name]Iris[/name] in her class! I [name]LOVE[/name] [name]Violet[/name], but it has gotten a little too popular for my taste. [name]Flora[/name] has wonderful sound and is unique.

I can’t choose between those four, but I hope my thoughts were at least helpful! Best of luck!

U.S., and [name]Edie[/name] (I would probably use full name [name]Eden[/name] or [name]Edith[/name] as I like them both) is my favorite. [name]Iris[/name] is my 2nd favorite.

[name]Violet[/name], for sure.

definitely [name]Iris[/name]!

[name]Violet[/name]- so sweet! I’m in the southern part of the US, by the way.

i’m in the US. I like [name]Flora[/name] the best. Followed by [name]Violet[/name] and then [name]Edie[/name]. But I don’t know your other children’s names so I don’t know how [name]Flora[/name] flows in the sibset
