Her sister is Violet.

I don't particularly like either, but Fern is the better of the two.

Violet is lovely and traditional. Rose or Lily would be fitting for her sister.

Autumn, as I've never liked Fern, sorry

Autumn 100%

I really like Fern.

I'm going to say Fern As a mother to 4 year old Autumn whose name is growing in popularity wink

PandaCat Thu 05-Oct-17 10:54:00

I prefer Autumn

I like Fearne.
I know a Fearne that has a sister called Tarn. Never heard anyone else with that name either smile

Both lovely. My favourite is Fern - very sweet and feisty.

Fern. My ds would've been a Fern.

My bump will be a Fern so I'll say Autumn 😂

Autumn and Violet sound lovely together!

Autumn is pleasant-sounding too, but while it is the 'season .... of mellow fruitfulness ' its also the season of mists (and storms). The end of summer.

I love them both, but I think Fern sounds 'stronger' (and a bit less American)

MikeUniformMike Sat 07-Oct-17 14:59:19

I like both. Prefer Fern to Fearne.

Yika Sat 07-Oct-17 19:37:55

Fern. Cute, sassy.

Ropsleybunny Sat 07-Oct-17 19:41:48

Both are lovely but don't really match with Violet.

RoboticSealpup Sat 07-Oct-17 21:41:13

Autumn! Fern sounds like a surname.

DramaAlpaca Sat 07-Oct-17 21:57:46

Fern is lovely. As long as you don't mess about with it & spell it Ferne or, even worse, Fearne. Just Fern is perfect.

I'm not mad on Autumn as a name.
