Love them all (not helpful) but all gorgeous

I would personally choose pearl but that's because I'm due in June and its the birthstone smile
My next favourite is ivy then violet.

Violet...my neighbours two year is called this. Slightly bored of all the flower names though, not very original anymore.

Where do you live? My friend was set on Ivy until she realised the local pronunciation would have an A on the end! I adore Pearl. And Elsie.

Ivy, violet second, don't like pearl

All lovely. I think Pearl and Violet are my favourite. I know a couple of Violets and only 1 Pearl, who is now grown up.

Pearl is pretty.

Never liked Ivy. Poison Ivy and Ivy Tildesly. Violet is to much like violent.

Ooh, lovely names, too hard to choose! Ivy at a push.

Ivy

MonaLotte Tue 01-Jan-13 23:10:42

Ivy is my fav.

3smellysocks Tue 01-Jan-13 23:10:29

Adore Pearl and Violette. Pearl probably a little bit more.

DrRanj Tue 01-Jan-13 23:08:09

I love violet. It was my second choice for dd1. I will probably use it if I ever have a dd2!

Nivet Tue 01-Jan-13 23:06:46

I love them all but would rank them 1.Ivy, 2.Pearl, 3.Violet.

Rhubarbgarden Tue 01-Jan-13 19:38:43

I like all of them but Violet is my favourite.

BaileyBillyBooBoo Tue 01-Jan-13 18:21:35

AuntieShirley does your Pearl like her name.....grin @ Kim

AuntieShirley Tue 01-Jan-13 18:19:26

Pearl. My 7 year old dd is Pearl.I love it. She wishes she was called Kim grin

LynetteScavo Mon 31-Dec-12 23:55:09

I like Ivy best.

BaileyBillyBooBoo Mon 31-Dec-12 23:50:30

Aaahhh that's nice! My dm doesn't like them as they remind her of old farts.....her words not mine! I don't have those associations though apart from one lady.

wouldratherbeonthebeach Mon 31-Dec-12 23:28:18

Only what a pretty or unusual name it is, never negative smile

pennylovesleonard Mon 31-Dec-12 23:26:32

A few 'that's an old ladies name.....' Before she was born but I've got an old ladies name so I don't care grin

All very positive reactions now but that's because she is so gorgeous

VerySmallSqueak Mon 31-Dec-12 23:24:24

Violet,then Ivy then Pearl.

BaileyBillyBooBoo Mon 31-Dec-12 23:24:02

Those of you who said you have an Ivy and Pearl do you get any positive/negative reactions to you little dd's names?? smile
