Iris?

Possible middle names are Constance, and then don't know!

Surname is one syllable starting B

Thanks mumsnet!

I rather like it! Much stronger than the currently popular 'cutesy' botanical names, while still being softly feminine.

Two enthusiastic thumbs up from team pelvic.

Love it

samuelwhiskers Wed 12-Jun-13 22:21:44

like it but don't love it, but really love Constance!

Vijac Wed 12-Jun-13 22:22:35

Lovely

Vijac Wed 12-Jun-13 22:23:33

Not so sure about Constance but ok as it's a middle name (and doesn't really matter!)

One of my favourite girl's names. Love it.

ChippingInWiredOnCoffee Wed 12-Jun-13 22:24:53

I don't like either - but it's not my baby!

Noggie Wed 12-Jun-13 22:27:25

I really like it- suits a little one and and a grown up young lady. Think some 'cute' names might come to be less helpful with age?

EuphemiaLennox Wed 12-Jun-13 22:32:21

I love it because I love tge scent of Iris so it has such strong positive associations for me.

ImaginaryHat Wed 12-Jun-13 22:47:56

Love it

Rtfairy Wed 12-Jun-13 23:05:09

I like it

CheerfulYank Wed 12-Jun-13 23:08:49

Love Iris and Constance but not together.

I have a one syllable B surname too...it makes naming hard! smile

BlueStarsAtNight Wed 12-Jun-13 23:10:54

I like it, as long as your surname doesn't end with an 's' or 'ce' sound; if it does then I think it would be too much to have all 3 names end that way!

Love it! Beautiful smile

lottiegarbanzo Thu 13-Jun-13 02:39:44

Yes, like it.

Connie is really nice too, or Con, though to me Constance is very 'proper' in a stern great aunt way. You can do that with a middle name though.

Same as angus love it. Dh is a bugger. sad

DonDrapersAltrEgoBigglesDraper Thu 13-Jun-13 09:24:25

I don't love either, though that's neither here nor there. But I don't think they run together all that well.

ItsallFeegle Thu 13-Jun-13 09:27:44

I think it's beautiful. grin

Exhaustipated Thu 13-Jun-13 09:30:26

Lovely but pretty popular and on the rise, if that bothers you. I know 4 little ones.

GW297 Thu 13-Jun-13 15:35:34

Like it!

AmandaPandtheTantrumofDoom Thu 13-Jun-13 16:10:14

Lovely - both names.

AmandaPandtheTantrumofDoom Thu 13-Jun-13 16:10:36

Constance would definitely be on a list for hypothetical DD3!

GeeandTea Thu 13-Jun-13 16:56:59

Love it

TeamJavert Thu 13-Jun-13 18:06:38

Hate it.

valiumredhead Thu 13-Jun-13 18:12:01

Gorgeous!

KnittedC Thu 13-Jun-13 18:12:11

Same as a couple of other posters I love it but my DP vetoed it on the grounds of being "too eye-ish" hmm

chickydoo Thu 13-Jun-13 18:18:34

Love Constance
Brilliant name
Iris Ok
Would you switch ?
Constance Iris
Not
Iris Constance

MadameJosephine Thu 13-Jun-13 18:26:18

Love it! Also love Constance but personally I prefer them the other way round

love iris

I like Constance better tbh.

Doctorbrownbear Thu 13-Jun-13 19:22:50

Sounds like an eye disorder..

BroodyAndMoody Thu 13-Jun-13 20:58:20

Thanks for all the input peeps! We think maybe we need to think of some different middle names just in case....

Just had to explain to DH that DH didn't mean what he thought!
