My order of preference

Iris, really lovely beautiful name
Skye, love this name but is really popular where I am
Willow, I liked this for my DD but given that I am a short arse thought I'd better not!
Luna, not so keen on this one

Luna I think smile

FiaGrace Sun 16-Feb-14 23:09:53

Skye is my favorite, Luna my least favorite

skyeskyeskye Sun 16-Feb-14 23:10:53

Skye is my DD's middle name so am biased but I do prefer it to the others.

Iris and willow beautiful names

shazbean Sun 16-Feb-14 23:15:54

both lovely. not keen on the other two.

These names are mentioned so often and I imagine them being the equivalent of Sharon & Karen in my day. I do quite like the name Skye though. Would be concerned that Luna would be called Lunatic by those pesky peers of hers.

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

Not keen on the other two.

Skye or iris

jennifleurs Sun 16-Feb-14 23:35:24

I like Iris but not the others personally.

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

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?

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.

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.

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.

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.

pygmy Mon 17-Feb-14 12:48:42

Iris by far.

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

Not keen on others

Loveyouthree Mon 17-Feb-14 15:05:39

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

Behindthecandelabra Mon 17-Feb-14 15:11:35

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

RoseHoney Tue 18-Feb-14 15:13:22

What about Una?

DownstairsMixUp Tue 18-Feb-14 15:15:28

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.

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

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