Juno Violet. Definitely.

Violet is definitely a possibility as a middle name with Cassia, I just have Primrose stuck in my head.

Cassia Rose or Cassia Violet.

Juno isn't nearly as pretty, cool or classy

fingers that's always the best marker if others knock it but you still love it, it's def the name for you! Stick to your guns it's your dd after all!

I think myself and dh prefer Cassia Primrose, and even though there has been a mixed bag of comments it's not putting me off.

I think it is unusual, edgy and pretty with a little bit of quirky-ness added, which is exactly what we are looking for. I think it must be a good sign that none of the negative comments are quelling my love of the name or the combination. Thanks for your help! grin

Neither for me, sorry. The only name I like out of those is Violet.

Cassia Violet.

Lovely names.

Peach Melba?

Saffyz Mon 16-Sep-13 01:22:05

Cassia Peaches sounds like a recipe, sorry!

I can't get passed the name Juno sounding like a a question.

"D'know Emily Smith" etc

Cassia Primrose is awful. And so is Juno Violet. However, I like the name Violet but not teamed with Juno. Cassia is not to my taste but it's fine but not with Primrose.

Yy Cassia Pearl is gorgeous.

10/10for poster who suggested that <too lazy to look back through thread>

LondonNinja Sun 15-Sep-13 22:51:15

Not Juno.

Floggingmolly Sun 15-Sep-13 22:48:25

Absolutely dreadful.

bundaberg Sun 15-Sep-13 22:45:29

Juno Violet

i don't know why, just don't like Cassia that much

MintyDiamonds Sun 15-Sep-13 22:40:50

I love Juno, but prefer the middle name Primrose. If you go for Cassia (which is also nice) I like the surname Pearl.

FingersCrossedLegsNot Sun 15-Sep-13 22:30:59

Oooh Cassia Pearl is gorgeous.....why didn't I think of that?!

sleepingbeautiful Sun 15-Sep-13 21:41:17

I really like Cassia. Juno to me is meh and very 'now'.
Cassia Primrose is better than Cassia Peaches, which sounds like a cartoon character.
How about
Cassia Pearl
Cassia Peony
Cassia Paloma
Cassia Posy
Cassia Persephone

FingersCrossedLegsNot Sun 15-Sep-13 18:43:33

Cassia is a spice similar to cinnamon (I'm not sure re the yam thing, but it doesn't bother me tbh)

For those who don't like Primrose with Cassia how about Cassia Peaches... For some reason I really like a middle name beginning with P to go with Cassia. However Boris Johnson has a dd called Cassia Peaches, I don't want it to seem like I'm copying. I'm in Ireland so I'm not sure how many people would make the association. It is a little out there but I like going a little crazy with middle names.....really living on the edge you know wink

Cassia is a yam eaten in Africa, or is it Cassova? I like Violet.

ELR Sun 15-Sep-13 18:19:32

Cassia Rose or Cassia Violet, don't like primrose and i think Juno is a harsh name.

BlackMogul Sun 15-Sep-13 18:13:32

If you cannot choose, go for all four. Why not? Boys have four names. My mum has four names, including Primrose. She was baptised on Primrose Day.

Alisvolatpropiis Sun 15-Sep-13 17:48:01

What are cassowaries Rhubarb?

SelectAUserName Sun 15-Sep-13 17:47:23

"Juno Violet?"

"Yes, she lives in the old people's home on the corner."

Sorry OP, but that's my abiding problem with the name Juno when spoken aloud - it sounds a bit like "d'you know...?"

I like the suggestion of Cassia Rose upthread, that's a really pretty name.

Rhubarbgarden Sun 15-Sep-13 17:28:53

I love Primrose and Violet. Juno is ok.

Dislike Cassia because it makes me think of cassowaries. I know that's a bit ridiculous.
