What do you think about Iris? Is it a classic or do you think the old Edwardian types of names were a fad from about ten years ago? Are 1940's names more on trend now. I'm totally lost... but love the meaning and the Greek Myth connection.
I love it, we would have used it but our surname just doesn't go with any name ending in an s sound. It's simple, short and easy to spell but still has a pretty sound while at the same time being a strong sounding name. Plus the flower itself is gorgeous.
My 11 year old dd is called Iris, and I still love it. I think it is elegant, strong, classic and feminine. We named her for family and Iris Murdoch (whom I adore and admire immensely). We have gone years without meeting another and only in the last 6 months we have met somebody whose younger (6 year old) sister is called Iris.
