What do you think of this name. I love it! Eleanor is a family name and I think it softens Violet nicely! Also Violet feels a bit dark whereas Eleanor means bright or shining.
I'm 19 weeks and not sure what I'm having yet but I have a boys name
Thoughts?

Not if your surname is Day!

I don't get it? Is that someone famous?

I love it. Violet is my fictional third child's name.

Eleanor Violet is nicer. Violet Eleanor just sounds like Violent Eleanor, to me

Jw35 Sat 05-Mar-16 01:06:22

I can't use Eleanor as a first name so it would be violet Eleanor.
I'm also considering violet Grace at the moment. Surname is 2 syllables beginning with W. Thanks!

Violet Eleanor is very nice

I think violet is gorgeous but violet Eleanor doesn't flow that well. Who cares though. How often do you actually say your first and middle name together.

Sometimesithinkimbonkers Sat 05-Mar-16 01:36:01

Prefer the spelling Elinor X

Mclaren37 Sat 05-Mar-16 02:10:51

Love Violet and Vi! Violet Grace is gorgeous. Much prefer to Violet to Eleanor - Eleanor is fine as the middle name.

I think Violet Eleanor W-- is softer-sounding and nicer than Violet Grace W--. The V/T/G sounds are a little bit harsh together whereas with Eleanor it flows nicely.

Violet is a beautiful, unique, feminine name. Eleanor very meh, middle of he road, not elegant or special.

Violet is lovely, Eleanor is a bit dull but middle names are largely irrelevant in my opinion.
