i really think this name is gorgeous, Issy for short - what do you think? Any potential pitfalls i should know about this name?

My 8 year old is called Iris, I love it, although we had a few raised eyebrows 8 years ago!
We call er Ishy affectionately but not really as a nn.
dd's friends mum is a HV and she says she has only met one other who was born recently, although i think it is becoming more popular now, we still havent met another.

Love it. Would use it for our forthcoming baby, but a friend used it for her little girl, so it's sadly out.

I really like it, such a beautiful flower too

It's lovely (will be DD's name if she is ever conceived!). But it's definitely becoming more popular and might be a bit too popular in a couple of year's time.

Love it, this baby would be called Iris(well it is very high up on the list) but it's a boy!

Don't understand why its not more popular - funny that Lily and Daisy are so common yet Iris isnt and its such a lovely name.

screamingabdab Thu 13-Aug-09 17:55:33

Love it. It means Rainbow.

Becoming increasingly popular, but not to an off-putting degree

mrsbean78 Thu 13-Aug-09 19:24:06

I have an Iris Elizabeth aged 16 weeks. Don't know any others. Have had only positive responses to the name.

lovely smile

i love this name, was on my ds2 shortlist., but how can issy be short for Iris, they are the same length. no point in calling baby Iris if your going to call her Issy, may as well calll her that from the start.
