Sister for Iris x Can't find a name i love as much, but do like Ivy and Violet. Think i prefer Ivy a bit more. Would love some opinions on the names and to know which everyone likes best. Thanks !

I would go for Violet as you have Iris as her big sister

Violet - I love Ivy but ivy and iris doesn’t work.

They're both lovely names 🙂 I slightly prefer Ivy, but Ivy and Iris are too similar IMO. Iris and Violet are both strong names and flowers so go well without being over-matchy.

Both are lovely but I do love Ivy. Ivy and Iris might be a bit too matchy in some peoples eyes mind. It's up to you at the end of the day, though.

Iris and Violet, just beautiful

SoftSheen Wed 07-Feb-18 10:18:23

Violet!

It's true Iris and Ivy are quite similar, that's probably why i like it!

Violet. Or Viola?

Ivy is a very pretty name. Met a baby called Primrose the other day which I thought was lovely if that helps.

Ivy and Iris is a bit of a mouthful. I love Violet.

What about Ada or Mabel?

helenalovel Wed 07-Feb-18 11:40:51

Thanks everyone. Was wondering if i should add Eden to the list? What do you think?

Ivy! Ivy and Iris is a lovely pair of names for sisters. They really aren't that similar.

I don't like Eden at all.

RosieCotton Wed 07-Feb-18 14:13:54

I have an Ivy and Eden. Eden is a beautiful name, so I'd obviously say Eden. This time we're having a little girl again and she's called Poppy. I would go with Ivy, it's a great name smile

I don't like Ivy. Violet gets pronounced Vile-et.
Eden will get called Ede.

CherryTreeIsGrowing Wed 07-Feb-18 15:11:17

I prefer Ivy but don't think Iris and Ivy sound right together.

Hate Violet, it's a very wet name.

TatianaLarina Wed 07-Feb-18 15:27:48

Eden is pure chav.

Violet is lovely, and I think Iris and Ivy are too similar.

AnyaMoondial Wed 07-Feb-18 15:30:24

Violet! Beautiful and goes really well with Iris.

Meemzinha Wed 07-Feb-18 17:53:27

I love Eden, and I believe it's much less popular than Ivy and Violet too?

TheDailyMailIsADisgustingRag Wed 07-Feb-18 17:56:02

I’d definitely go for Eden. I think Ivy may get confusing as it sounds quite similar to Iris. I’m not mad on Violet and I think it’s becoming really popular, if that bothers you.

I'm not keen on Eden, it sounds a bit insubstantial to me. I like Edith with Edie as nickname, or Elsie.

MancUnicorn Wed 07-Feb-18 20:47:00

Violet is one of the top contenders for DD name (DP's top choice). I like Iris and Violet. Iris and Ivy are lovely but catchy (if you can get past that though it is lovely). I really like Eden. Only met one other my age. So nice. Iris and Eden sound lovely!

Sugarpiehoneyeye Wed 07-Feb-18 22:29:48

How about Iris and Jasmine ?

SuperBeagle Wed 07-Feb-18 22:48:52

Violet.

Ivy and Iris are too similar.

Threeandabit Wed 07-Feb-18 22:53:50

I like them both, but would choose Violet so they have different initials.

I would also suggest Opal and Verity.
