After much debate we are now down to the following two for first and middle names for DD:

Nina Hope
Iris Hope

We have DS, Sid (Sidney in full).

Thanks v much.

Nina, beautiful name

I'd choose Iris, because I know a lovely Iris. Both terrific names though. Sid is fab too.

I prefer Nina to Iris.

I think Iris goes better with Sidney as they both have a vintage feel.

Nina is lovely though.

Iris, i wanted it for dd 2 but it was vetoed.

Iris, but Nina is great too.

Love Sidney, so nice to see it used for a boy (I hate it for a girl)

PiSeas Sun 30-Oct-16 19:13:28

Not Binary. Stupid jeffing auto correct confused

Nina is lovely. Please don't call your DD binary

I love them both, but Iris would be the one I'd pick. I agree it goes well with Sidney.

Honeybee79 Sun 30-Oct-16 19:19:06

PiSeas - no risk of a baby Binary! grin.

I love both of them, but would go for Iris in your situation because "Sidney and Nina" has too many "nee" sounds, and sounds a bit like an ambulance siren.

AmberEars Sun 30-Oct-16 19:20:38

I prefer Iris. I quite like binary too!

Honeybee79 Sun 30-Oct-16 19:21:39

I see your point Jasper though I guess they won't be a "unit" for long!

Artandco Sun 30-Oct-16 19:24:55

Iris. At first glance Nina hope looks like ' not a hope'

Pluto30 Sun 30-Oct-16 19:34:00


Iris always just makes me think of eyes.

Madbengalmum Sun 30-Oct-16 19:35:38

Iris for me.

icantgetnosleep5 Sun 30-Oct-16 19:37:05

Nina is cute for a little girl, but i think Iris suits all ages better.

Nina, definitely.
