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.

Iris! 100%
Fits someone of any age, more than Ivy. And Isla is a bit faddy...

Isla is extremely common where I live. And unfortunately has some connotations. The amount of times I hear them get called as Iz-la too is bizarre.

Ivy and Iris are both beautiful. Only know 1 of each and they'd certainly be on my list.

What about Ida?

Choose Iris! I really love it and wanted it for this baby if it’s a girl, but can’t due to our surname being Lewis.

Iris doesn’t sound perfect with our surname either... it has a S on the end... but I figure she might marry and change her surname at some point!

It’s sods law isnt it.

The only boys name I like is Ellis and we can’t have that either 😫

I prefer Phoebe 🙂

Isla is too popular / overdone & maybe on the way out a little bit for that reason. The other two are both beautiful names. I love iris

Someone today linked Iris to Isis... I don’t think I can I hear it now! Why do people have to ruin things with their unhelpful comments!

Ivy! So beautiful and simple.

If I had another girl she would be Violet or Ivy. smile

All three are on my shortlist, they are all lovely! My current favourite I think is Ivy but I could easily choose any of them. Isla is very popular so that does put me off a bit.

Ignore the isis comment!

Ivy is a lovely name... Isla is far too common imo..

Love Iris, if I had had another DD she would have been Iris. Beautiful and works for a a wee one and older. Maybe popular but for a good reason. Don't like Isla or Ivy nearly so much.

Definitely Iris, but I'm biased.

It was my beloved mum's name - she died two years ago and I love that it seems to be becoming popular again.
