I knew a melody who was a pain in the arse so I'll go with violet. I know a lovely 4 year old violet smile

Melody sounds a bit 1980s to me. Reminds me of Melanie.

I think Melody Violet flows better, but Violet with no Melody is a better name

I always see the word violent in Violet. Always have. What about Elodie?

septembersunshine Wed 06-Jul-16 07:35:42

I feel the same as NavyAndWhite. I see that too. One letter away. I was also going to suggest Elodie - which is a much prettier name then Melody imo. Plus you can have Elle/Ellie for a nickname and that is a very cool name I think ;) If you chose Melody then you have Mel/Melly... .not so good.

Although I do love Elodie too

Violet Melody, but I agree that Violet Elodie would be nicer.

Both lovely.

Melody Violet has the edge for me.

We were going to name our DD Melody I think it's a beautiful name but don't like it shortened to Mel so that went out the window. Violet makes me think of that chewing gum girl in Charlie & the chocolate factory & Parma violet sweets - neither a pleasant association for me smile

I love Melody, not so keen on Violet (it reminds me of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory too!)

Melody get's my vote!

Don't like Melody at all (sorry!)

Zadocthepriest Wed 06-Jul-16 20:15:37

Are we thinking Vi o let or Vi let?

That is the problem with names like Violet, Barbara, Deborah

Violet is lovely.

I find Melody a bit too whimsical and if would be a bit of a disaster if she was tone deaf!

Melody Violet.
Violet Melody sounds like violent Melody imo, sorry!... But I do love Viola Melody. L
