Which one of the above? Finally got it down to 4. Phew.

Willow is my favourite. Have you considered Iona or Isla? They also seem to fit with your shortlist.

Iris.

Not keen on the others.

In order of preference
Willow - love this name
Iris - reminds me of the song by googoodolls in a good way
Skye - although slightly reminds me of the character in neighbours back in the day
Luna - not so keen to be honest

I agree, Luna is a horrible name (imo) the other three are all nice! I only know one baby Skye. That's my favourite name on your list.

What about Una?

I love Iris. The others, nah, not my cup of tea tbh.

Oh my god, Ive got a baby Willow, and I'm only 5"0!! Shit, is that bad?! She's going to get bullied? sad

OP all of those name were on my short list apart from Skye - a bit of a "rough" name round here confused

Iris by far.

I'm afraid I agree with the D List celeb comments re Luna.

cheesepleese Mon 17-Feb-14 11:34:29

Thanks. I think Iris is my favourite.
I have seen (on another board) Luna described as being a 'D List celeb' name, which is a shame. I worry that Skye and Willow are a bit hippy but I do love them.

As I'm sure you know, 'Luna' means 'Moon'. I don't wish to sound critical, but I really don't understand why anyone would want to call a child that.

Skye is a popular name for sheepdogs where I live.

Willow is pretty but might not suit a person with a sturdy or rounded figure.

Irises are beautiful flowers and are used in many perfumes - both are lovely associations for a name.

Iris

Iris - LOVE this
Willow - Really like
Skye - I live too close to the place to like it as a first name, IYSWIM
Luna - Hate this.

They are all woo, ethereal sort of names, apart from Iris who is a mother-in-law with varicose veins. She has sisters called Doris and Mavis.

HTH

Iris or Skye.

Luna sounds like the name of a cat or a harry potter character, and she will be called 'loony' throughout her schooldays.

willow is kind of naff - what if she were short and dumpy?

I like Iris but not the others personally.

Think Luna is a really naff thing to call a child.

MrsBungle Sun 16-Feb-14 23:29:25

Skye or iris

I like Willow (because of Buffy) and Luna (Bear in the big blue house, rather than Harry Potter!)

Not keen on the other two.
