Poppy, Daisy and Isla?

I think we have decided on Isla for DD3 due in a couple of weeks. We already have Poppy and Daisy so my only concern is that the third will feel left out of the flower theme. I was thinking Isla Molly Rose but I think Rose/Rosie has become too over-used to use it as a first name now - maybe it's just because I have two close friends with DDs called Rosie that puts me off. Lovely name but I don't want to copy and all that. Wish we'd never started down the flower route at all!
anyway, what are the thoughts on Isla?

I like Isla, but if you want to continue with the flower theme what about Iris? Lovely name and not nearly so common as Rose.

I love Isla.

I also love Rosa, bit of a compromise?

Or you could copy Jamie Oliver and go for Petal grin

And Holly.

Love Iris too. Violet good as well.

I think having all three with flower name is a bit twee. Isla is a great name - (I would choose it for me but doesn't go with our surname) - I don't think she'll feel left out at all!

I also love Iris and Rosa but dh won't have any of it! I do also agree that too many flowers is a bit twee! And don't go there with the Jamie Oliver thing, am not into celebs at all and was gutted when I found out he also had a Poppy and Daisy so there is definitely no Petal on the way here!

I love Violet.

And Lily.

Isla is lovely
I love Rose too but it is sadly overused at the moment
Not so keen on Lily or Iris
But here's an idea - if you called her Elizabeth, or Lizzie for short, it could still be a "flower" name (also short for Lizianthus) but less obvious )
Sadly (for me) I really like the name Blossom as well but I fear DH would never take to it...

I love Isla

I would personally stay away from another flower name tbh Isla is nice

boodleboot Fri 04-Sep-09 14:27:07

actually i don't see the problem with another flower name. Isla is very popular where i live so i would avoid it like the plague but the name in itself is quite nice.

I think it would be nice to use another flower name. I know a Poppy, Daisy and Heather.

thumbwitch Fri 04-Sep-09 14:54:53

What about Fleur? Or Flora?
Or you can use this link to pick another one if you would prefer to use a flowery name again

thumbwitch Fri 04-Sep-09 14:56:06

ooh, one of my fave names has just shown up - Bryony - I forgot that was floral blush

diddl Fri 04-Sep-09 15:22:08

I like Flora.

I love the name Isla but DH is from Scotland, says it's the name of a "small town girl" (how that's bad I don't quite see but hey!)
Have a friend who had 3 girls Daisy, Lily and Poppy. Popular theme, flowers! (smile)

Nigella? Sunday name for love-in-a-mist - very pretty flower.

I used to think Nigel Lawson had made it up but no smile

thumbwitch Sat 05-Sep-09 01:02:13

What about Iona or even Ione? Apparently Ione is a flower name as well but less obviously so...

florence2511 Sat 05-Sep-09 01:46:47

I know 3 sisters called Jasmine, Rosie and Poppy. I like the flower theme myself.

Isla is lovely. It is an island in Scotland spelt Islay but pronounced Isla.
Iona is lovely too an island also.
If you like the flower theme i would go with Lily.
