Violet is a lovely name. Iris makes me think of eyes

Violet but that may be because the two Iris's I know are lovely but are 76 and 90 grin

I love the meaning of Iris - she was the Goddess of Rainbows but Violets are my favorite flower. Use them both!

To me, Iris is anatomical and Violet looks too much like violent


I love Viola or Violetta...

But out of the two I'd go for Iris, if I had to

Actually no, I prefer Violet!

Oh most definitely Violet. It is a gorgeous name, a lovely flower, a lovely scent. Iris is just too eyebally and prim.

Violet. I wanted to use this for (as yet unborn) DC3, but DH doesn't like it. So please use it for me!

Depends on your surname

Iris. The only one I know is 6.

Both very pretty smile

Iris, but I love them both. Iris Violet works very well IMO if you wanted to use Violet, and I like the Greek Rainbow Goddess association of Iris.
