This is so frustrating!!! angry I keep thinking I've decided, but then I change my mind... These have been the top 3 since the start.

Which is your favourite?

I like all three so, in order of preference:

I've always liked the idea of colours for girls names, don't know why haha. So, I'm gonna say Violetgrin

Grace. Even though it's very popular, I still love it.

(Alternatively, might Hope be an option? So underused, I don't know why).

Violet. Too many Graces.

All three are lovely. My order of preference is Grace, Autumn then Violet.

Autumn grace

They are all lovely thou. Maybe see if she suits one of them more when you see her.

EsperanzaDesperanza Sun 24-Sep-17 07:45:46

Autumn. I want another baby girl just so I can name her Autumn. It's lovely.

Violet Grace is beautiful

Crumbs1 Sun 24-Sep-17 07:50:41

Violet and Grace are much nicer than Autumn unless you're a pop star or live in a commune.

Violet Grace, dislike Autumn

My eldest is called Autumn- so I'm biased. It suits her as she's 'colourful' in character she was born in the Autumn suite at the hospital and on the Autumn equinox. So it really works for her. I like all of your names though so I can see why you can't decide! Grace has always sounded very sweet to me and violet makes me think of a strong child. Particularly in character.

I work with children and have met lots of Violets and Graces
I have never met an Autumn. I like Autumn the best.

You could use all three, they sound lovely together.

I don't like Grace as first name, but it rolls of the tongue as a mn.
If you're due in Autumn
Autumn-Grace. If not

Violet Grace

I also don't like Grace as a first name. Too religious sounding, and frankly, it sounds like a lot of pressure. What if your girl isn't graceful?

I don't like Autumn for a name, for the same reason I don't like Summer. It's a season. I find it especially odd when girls are named after seasons they aren't even born in!

PommeRouge Sun 24-Sep-17 10:52:04

Violet sounds too close to 'violent' to my ear.

Not really a fan of virtue names. Being called Grace is a lot to live up to - what if she's clumsy or quick-tempered?

Autumn not really my cup of tea, but no aural confusions or possible unfortunate irony to it either.

They're all lovely.

I think I like Autumn best.
