All three are lovely however Pear is beautiful and unusual so pips it for me.

Pear?!?!? (Reminds me of the cutted up pear thread) I of course meant Pearl stoooooooopid IPad and its auto cucumber!

Ivy....very pretty smile

Violet is lovely.

Of all the old names making a comeback, I prefer Maud.

However out of your 3, Violet is my favourite.

Saying that, it might depend on your surname.....

One vote each so far....pretty divided, it's so difficult to decide. I like Ivy as I have a ds with a three letter name and thought they would compliment each other. Pearl is a recent like as I actually used to think it was awful...this was influenced by a local woman with they name...can I move past this?! Violet I love but its getting popular.....though I expect all three are getting popular!

Ivy. It's lovely. DS would have been Ivy were he a DD.

BaileyBillyBooBoo Mon 31-Dec-12 22:36:25

BaileyBillyBooBoo Mon 31-Dec-12 23:24:02

Those of you who said you have an Ivy and Pearl do you get any positive/negative reactions to you little dd's names?? smile

VerySmallSqueak Mon 31-Dec-12 23:24:24

Violet,then Ivy then Pearl.

pennylovesleonard Mon 31-Dec-12 23:26:32

A few 'that's an old ladies name.....' Before she was born but I've got an old ladies name so I don't care grin

All very positive reactions now but that's because she is so gorgeous

wouldratherbeonthebeach Mon 31-Dec-12 23:28:18

Only what a pretty or unusual name it is, never negative smile

BaileyBillyBooBoo Mon 31-Dec-12 23:50:30

Aaahhh that's nice! My dm doesn't like them as they remind her of old farts.....her words not mine! I don't have those associations though apart from one lady.

LynetteScavo Mon 31-Dec-12 23:55:09

I like Ivy best.
