They turn out cute (pics in profile) grin

Thanks for the link, LL. I hadnt heard that before and will play it around her. To my eternal shame, her favourite song at the moment is Agadoo and that is a considerable improvement.

I love Iris, met a woman at the park the other day and her dd was called it. I shall seriosly consider it if I ever have another dd.

Irises are my favourite flowers,tall and elegant

I have nursed several Irises,they have either been very lovely and wellspoken or complete characters (i.e my fav was a miners wife,had dementia and nicked everyone elses false teeth,and would sing rude rugby songs at visiting times!)

I do think of it as an old lady name but also think it is very pretty when you think of the flower,and a lot of these flower names are coming back in fashion like Lily and Rose.
