He's BU? Surely? We both love a name, but as he had a rabbit with that name when he lived alone, he doesn't want to use it, WTF?

Fair enough I say.

My friends named their pet rabbit with their favourite girls name.. Then a year later had a baby girl.. they ended up calling her the same name as the rabbit as they loved the name so much.. I don't think they ever mixed them up by accident.. I don't think the rabbit or baby was upset..

I had a cat with our dd name , you really do forget all about it.

Oh Violet is a nice name

Although I have a friend name Violet and I've always nicknamed her Violent.

I like Violet. It's a pretty name for a girl. Weird name for a rabbit, though. Rabbits should be named Flopsy or Cottontail or Jessica.

My mother refused to even entertain the idea of a pet dog through my entire childhood. Once I'd left home she and my sister got a dog and gave it my favourite girl namegrin

Is it Buffy?

CoffeeAndEnnui Wed 04-Oct-17 23:14:21

Violet is a beautiful name. Try him with Violet the 2nd?!

KingJoffreysRestingCuntface Wed 04-Oct-17 23:15:46

Ah, Violet.

Whenever I hear that name I picture little Fiver saying, "Violet's gone!" to the other bunnies. Tears me up inside.

Our rabbits were called Pepsi and BenBen. pretty safe there! Violet is pretty though, was my grandmother's name.

I'm assuming it's Jessica....a compromise might be Jessica-Jane....and stick to it!!

Our rabbit was called Casserole.

As the person who gave birth I would normally side with you (assuming the daughter is a birth daughter) but on this occasion I think you should both find a different name, maybe use this name as a middle name.

You say "We both love", but he clearly doesn't love it for a dd, as he's used it for his rabbit.
Find a different name you both want to use.

Pascall please tell me it was a joke because of rabbit casserole...
My sister called her chicken Nugget Mcgee...
