Which one do you prefer as a sibling for Elliot?

I love Isla, but was worried about popularity. I keep swapping between Ivy and Iris. Both I love one minute then have doubts the next.

Phoebe was also on the list but I think I’ve gone off it.

Ivy or Iris are both lovely. Isla seems a bit faddy now.

There’s a lot of Ivy/Ivies. I’d go Iris

In order:
Elliot and Iris
Elliot and Ivy
Elliot and Isla

But I actually like them all!

I thought Iris is becoming quite popular (and Isla was very popular), so to me Ivy seems the most classic

Honesty? Love all three!

Couldn’t choose to be honest as they’re all so pretty!

Iris! Isla has become very popular, and to me Ivy is a really dull name.

Ivy or Iris I dont like Isla

Isla it's so pretty

Isla. All three names are lovely though. Don't worry too much about popularity. It just means a lot of people have your good taste in names wink

Thanks everyone.... glad all 3 are generally liked but I’ve now still no idea which to pick! I might let DS choose nearer the time by drawing it from a hat!

Isla is top ten (or very close to it) so personally I’d avoid for that reason. Ivy is getting really popular too - I know more than one. Now, that might make it seem like I prefer Iris by a process of elimination, but actually I LOVE it and wanted it for DC2 (who was a boy) grin

They're all nice but they're also all very popular which would put me off.
