She's 2 weeks old (I've tried both names!) smile

Violet Olivia. Congrats by the way!

Partly depends on your surname. You don't want initials VOM!

Violet Olivia 😊 Congratulations!

Definitely Violet Olivia - Olivia is way too common as a first name.

I would have said Olivia, but seeing as it was number 1 in 2016 I would avoid - I don't have a problem with popular names but think it's a shame when they have to be Olivia A, Olivia B etc.
That being said the youngest Olivia I know is 21, and I know lots of new babies.

Violet is a beautiful name though so isn't a great loss smile

Congratulations! Olivia Violet rolls off the tongue better, but how often will you say both names together? I much prefer Violet as a first name.

She'd be one of at least 5 Olivia's/Olivers/Olives in her class at school.

GU24Mum Fri 22-Sep-17 22:02:13

I like both though probably prefer Violet. Personally, I'd steer away from Violet Olivia - reminds me a bit much of Violet Elizabeth in the "Just William" books as it sounds similar - but I'm an old fogey and she won't use her mn much day to day!

AliceMorgan25 Fri 22-Sep-17 22:04:42

Sounding like Violet Elizabeth wouldn't bother me at all!

Thank you for the replies. Seems that Violet Olivia is preferred smile

NinonDeLenclos Fri 22-Sep-17 22:06:49

Violet Elizabeth was actually her whole name though.

Most people aren't going to know that Violet's middle name is Olivia.

LeonoraFlorence Fri 22-Sep-17 22:07:52

I prefer Violet Olivia. Both beautiful smile
