Stuck between these two, thanks!

Both lovely!! Jealous you're using them, I only have boys and they are some of my top girl choices I haven't had chance to use!!

I really love both but for very biased reasons will say violet

I think I'd choose Iris.

Much less used and prettier flower.

I prefer Iris, DH Violet. Considered both in the past.

These were our top two names. I loved both but DH slightly preferred Violet so we used that.

Violet, but Iris a very close second.

It’s so close, Violet was a favourite for me with my dd but it was vetoed by my partner because... Charlie and the chocolate factory. A friend of my has the sweetest little Iris so was never an option for us, but love that too!
I’d say Iris is probably less common so I’d choose that 😀

Violet, absolutely.

I don't understand the love for Iris.

BedtimeTea Sun 11-Mar-18 04:51:11

I love them both but love Violet a bit more.

Violet 💜

I really like them both but would choose Violet over Iris .

Don’t think Iris is very nice sounding.
