opinions & which one?? smile

Honestly, I hate Stella. It's either an awful throwback name or it's Stella Artois to my ear. By process of elimination, Violet is better.

I think Stella has a few negative connotations, it's either Stella Artois, or Marlon Brando in Streetcar named Desire:

Which Seinfeld took the piss out of and would go through my mind if I met a Stella:

I don't really like either tbh.

It's not about what a random internet person likes though, if you like it then go for it

Stella grin, I love it, always have done. My husband vehemently dislikes it so we didn't use it for any of ours but I've a real soft spot for it. Violet is a bit trendy Wendy for me at the minute.

I like Violet though. Lettie as a NN?

I love Stella, it has strength and has an individual feel without being weird.

Violet is also lovely, to me is more of a romantic name.

Two very different feeels to these names. Personally I lean towards Stella, but only you know your bub smile

I know 2 lovely Stellas, and it makes me think of stars.
Violet looks like violent.

I love Stella, unfortunately vetod by dh 3 times! (He'd forgotten between DDS)

It is very unlike the names we went with in the end!

tooclosetocall Tue 17-Jan-17 14:27:03

I don't think of the Brando association at all and I've watched the movie

Calling out each name several times should help 😀

Tough - both are excellent!

Jooni Tue 17-Jan-17 14:42:18

Don't like Stella, but Violet is lovely!

steppemum Tue 17-Jan-17 17:03:58

not overly keen. Stella makes me think of a star which is nice.
Violet tends ot make me think of Charlie and Chocolate factory and the horrible violet in it, but it is in essence pretty.

Violet Defiantly

DowhatIwanttodo Tue 17-Jan-17 18:14:58

Prefer Stella. I don't know why names like Ivy and Violet have made a comeback. I don't like them at all.

Sophronia Tue 17-Jan-17 18:23:51

Not keen on either, but Stella if I had to pick

WallToWallDrugs Tue 17-Jan-17 18:31:13

Violet, by a country mile!

Nonameyet1 Tue 17-Jan-17 18:57:07

Not keen on Stella either I'm afraid, don't think it's a very pretty name. Love Violet.

I love both.dd2 was going to be Violet but exh vetoed it.She now says,aged 9,that she would far sooner have been Violet than the name we picked in the end.
Stella sounds feistier, Violet is prettier.

Violet by a million miles, just beautiful and although becoming more popular, still out of the top 50 so the least common of the flower names. LOVE.
