If it was me I would go for Elizabeth but known as Libby. But that's just me!

I wanted a baby Violet but had a boy. It's my favourite name at the moment for a girl.

Violet, it was second on my list. Went with Mabel after but would have been Violet if not. Love it!

then Violet
then Elizabeth

Oh that’s a tough one! I would probably say in order or preference Elizabeth, Eleanor and then Violet.

Elizabeth! Lizzie as a toddler, Beth when older... lots of choice. Also like Eleanor with Ella for short. Violet is nice too though. Good choices.

Ooh Violet a lot more popular than I expected

Still secretly hoping three will pop out so I can use all the names grin
I suspect the future will hold lots of cats if no triplets blush

All nice names!

I'd go for
Eleanor then
Violet then
Elizabeth- because I don't like what it will probably be shortened to - Liz, Lizzie etc.

Elizabeth is top.
Eleanor is second.
Violet is dreadful.

I do like Elizabeth
Can you do Elizabeth Eleanor Surname

Swearwolf Fri 10-Jan-20 22:06:58

Violet. Definitely not Eleanor - tiny Ellies are absolutely everywhere!

I would go for Elizabeth!
Such a lovely name, easy to spell unlike Eleanor which can be spelt various ways.
I'm afraid Violet just makes me think of Violet from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory!
Also, think it's a harsh sounding name - somewhat like violent?
Violent Violet?

Just don't use Violet Elizabeth ( character in Just William books)!
