Which do you prefer (and why) Note she won't be born in April! Thanksgrin

First impressions, Violet. It's classic. Although i havev a feeling its going to increase in popularity this year.
However April is quirky, slightly retro and could grow on me the more I think about it.

April. Love it.

Violet is also pretty, but very popular.

And ignore the people that say you can't call her April unless she is born in April. That is nonsense!

My relative is April. She was born in May!
It's a gorgeous name. Def a bit quirky.

I much prefer Violet. No particular reason, I just find it a more appealing name.

Violet is so beautiful

April. Reminds me of spring flowers.

BadToTheBone Sun 02-Jul-17 21:30:27

**or even Violet, lol

LadyMonicaBaddingham Sun 02-Jul-17 21:35:26

Both are lovely. You could also consider Avril or Viola...

April - I love this name. It's so happy and pretty without being flowery.

I do like Violet too though. I see Violets as dark haired only though.

Both lovely!

To me, April sounds very dated.

Love the name April but then I often I pick a name that I don't hear a lot smile

Lulue45 Mon 03-Jul-17 11:39:47

April smile

Really not a fan of Violet, just looks like violent written down and I think it's arduous to pronounce so people often say 'vi-let'
