We are waiting for our baby girl to arrive and can't decide between Margot and Iris - which do you prefer? And which goes better with older brother Archer (nn Archie?)

I prefer Margot but I really don't like flowery names.

I love margot or Margaux. Was vetoed by DH unfortunately

They're both nice. Iris wins out a little bit in my mind, I haven't heard it for a while wheres Margot is a bit more popular around me.

I prefer Iris, but both are nice.

Both lovely. I would go with Iris and Archie.

Love Iris, not a real fan of Margot

Margot is too severe

AnemonesCloser Sat 17-Oct-15 13:17:31

I like both!

LumelaMme Sat 17-Oct-15 13:35:06

Iris means rainbow. I love it.

Margot. Iris is more trendy round here.

I really like both. Iris just pips it but I think Margot goes better with Archie. I find it difficult to say Archie and Iris together?!

Archer and Iris sounds quite similar to me so I would pick Margot.

alteredimages Sat 17-Oct-15 19:29:15

I like Iris because Margot is too Ballet Shoes for me.

I am not trying to be a ponce but I like Iris much better when pronounced the French way. Can you move to France? grin

Definitely Margot, Iris is a very sharp name.

Alteredimages- how do the French pronounce iris?

Iris gets my vote- it's top of my list.

I know sisters called Margot and Iris! With a third sister called Tilly (Matilda). So how about Matilda as well?!

Think Margot goes marginally better with Archie. Are they both fine with your surname?

VocationalGoat Sun 18-Oct-15 08:47:02

Ah! Love 'm both!!!!

VocationalGoat Sun 18-Oct-15 08:49:05

'em! That should have read.

applecatchers36 Sun 18-Oct-15 09:05:00

Iris not keen on Margot

alteredimages Sun 18-Oct-15 10:07:15

Junosmum they pronounce the I as an ee sound, so Eerees with a French 'r'.

Crazypetlady Sun 18-Oct-15 11:17:25

Is margot like margo? Or is the T pronounced?
I love Iris

HerdOfRhino Sun 18-Oct-15 12:59:51


Dh prefers Margot

Paddletonio Sun 18-Oct-15 13:14:57
