nn Vivi

other DCs have very dull names, which in retrospect I regret, so I want a more adventurous one for this DC.

It's nice, yes.

Lovely, Violet is a beautiful name

very pretty! I think the alliteration works well.

Oh thanks. Not often on here a name gets no vote of dissent.

Hedwig3 Wed 22-Jun-11 13:03:43

Go for it.

That will be dc2's name exactly if it is a girl and if DH wasn't such an awkward Verity-hating bugger sad

Like Verity, but have to raise a small voice of unease here, which I think I can trace back to Dr Suess's ABC:

Big V little v,
Vera Violet Vinn
(who iirc was)
Very Very Very Awful on her Violin

Consider your surname and choice of musical instrument with care!

VV is not a nice combination (sorry - voice of dissent)

Love Violet, and i think Vivi is very sweet but really don't like Verity. Too fussy, and rather like Felicity to me. And actually think Verity Violet is a bit cutsey - sorry to be a voice of descent.

Like both names but not together.

MrsOzz Thu 23-Jun-11 15:18:21

I dislike Verity, purely because its the name of the PCOS charity and so it makes me think of ovaries! Violet it gorgeous though!

I know a Verity Violet, I was amazed to see the thread.

Both nice names but wouldn't use both together.

Both names are brilliant,but think ahead in case you have another daughter as I used up my two fave names with my first daughter!

I love both names and the combination is delightful with Verity as a sophisticated option if she wants it when she is adult.I have a very beautiful dgd named Constance Violet[Connie] which is similar without the alliteration.
