Baby not due until May so plenty of time to ponder! I really like iris as a first name but can't think of a middle name that goes with it?
I'm thinking it should be a 1 syllable like Jane but don't think Iris Jane sounds quite right?
Anyone got an Iris, what did you choose?

The moment I saw your thread title I thought of Iris Joyce, which also begins with J!

There is a variety of Iris called Joyce, which is why it popped into my mind, and I think they sound lovely together.

I have an Iris Elizabeth. This is DM's name and middle name also so was mostly chosen for that reason.

I instinctively think a short name like Iris, which I love, sounds better with a longer middle name, the rhythm seems more natural so Iris Elizabeth or Iris Penelope sounds better to my ear than Iris Jane. Say all your options aloud with your surname.

I think a longer name ending in 'A' or 'E' works really well with Iris (which I love, BTW)

Ooh thanks for the suggestions!! I like Iris Elizabeth- was thinking of Betsey as a first name but thought it might be a bit nicknamey? So Iris Betsey or Iris Elizabeth ??

Iris Elizabeth.
(Betsy) Is there a reason for the unusual spelling OP?
