All three are lovely however Pear is beautiful and unusual so pips it for me.

KateByChristmas Mon 31-Dec-12 22:24:31

Pear?!?!? (Reminds me of the cutted up pear thread) I of course meant Pearl stoooooooopid IPad and its auto cucumber!

Violet is my favourite out of those three namessmile

Of all the old names making a comeback, I prefer Maud.

However out of your 3, Violet is my favourite.

Saying that, it might depend on your surname.....

BaileyBillyBooBoo Mon 31-Dec-12 22:35:26

One vote each so far....pretty divided, it's so difficult to decide. I like Ivy as I have a ds with a three letter name and thought they would compliment each other. Pearl is a recent like as I actually used to think it was awful...this was influenced by a local woman with they name...can I move past this?! Violet I love but its getting popular.....though I expect all three are getting popular!

Ivy. It's lovely. DS would have been Ivy were he a DD.

BaileyBillyBooBoo Mon 31-Dec-12 22:36:25

IwishyouaMerryChristmas my grans name is Maud!

Viviennemary Mon 31-Dec-12 22:42:50

I like all three. Probably in this order Violet, Pearl, Ivy.

IwishyouaMerryChristmas Mon 31-Dec-12 23:13:09

Maud it is then! Your Gran would be grin

wouldratherbeonthebeach Mon 31-Dec-12 23:15:07

Pearl is my dd's name and I love it grin

pennylovesleonard Mon 31-Dec-12 23:19:26

Ivy is beautiful
(I've got one grin )

Bessie123 Mon 31-Dec-12 23:20:10

I love all those names. Not very helpful...

Lyns22 Mon 31-Dec-12 23:22:37

Violet is my fav smile x

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

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

Violet,then Ivy then Pearl.

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

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

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

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.

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

I like Ivy best.

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

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

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

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

I like all of them but Violet is my favourite.

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

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

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!

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

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

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

Ivy is my fav.

shellyf Tue 01-Jan-13 23:12:37

Ivy

birdofthenorth Thu 03-Jan-13 22:29:16

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

everlong Fri 04-Jan-13 08:21:57

Pearl is pretty.

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

telsa Fri 04-Jan-13 09:35:59

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.

Clarano5 Fri 04-Jan-13 15:28:36

Ivy, violet second, don't like pearl

ZZZenAgain Fri 04-Jan-13 15:29:59

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.

Kaekae Sun 06-Jan-13 15:22:40

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

Dillydollydaydream Sun 06-Jan-13 15:25:26

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.
