What do you think of the name Iris? Maybe Iri (I-ree) for short/nickname even though the name is already short. The poll is simply for the name, not nickname. I'm not typically a fan of flower names, no offense to anyone, but I don't hear Iris a lot. Feel free to add suggestions and comment on Iri. :)

I have a friend who has a daughter named Iris, she's the most beautiful little girl. I love the name.

I think it's really pretty. Kind of a classic cool sort of name.

That's my take on it as well. Classic and not too out there.



I'm going to skip making several replies, but the nickname just came to mind. Even without the nickname I still really like the name. Now here's to hoping my husband doesn't complain about it when the time comes.

I don't love or hate it. I recently had a cousin born that was named Iris Moira though.

Nicknames kind of find themselves, too, you know? My youngest is Laszlo---we call him Boobie. Ha ha...so, ya know.




Iris is cool though.

Haha! Nice. That is true. My son is Baby Man because he looked like Benjamin Button when he was born. Okay, not really, but he did look like a grumpy "baby man". He's 3 now and has a slight mustache, it's still fitting. :)

Rainbow? I look on behind the name every time I find a name that I like, which is rare, to find out the meaning. I'm not a big name buff, but I've been referred to that site several times as opposed to the million other baby name sites. I like Veda as well, my husband hates it. I'm sure he will hate Iris, too. Every name I like is too "out there" or "old" for his taste, but I'm trying to avoid naming my children Hayden Payden La-kaysha. Lol

Yep.



My husband's the same way--and we're not even expecting. Maybe (hopefully) it'll be different when we are.

Don't worry, we're not expecting either, just about to ttc. It's still frustrating, though.

Definitely. I want to be prepared, especially as he's adamant about not finding out the sex. My brother was nameless for weeks. I don't want that to happen.

Same here, except I'm the one who doesn't know to know the sex. My husband isn't on board with that so we were thinking about having him find out and keeping it a surprise for me. A friend of ours did that, his wife didnt want to know. I just hope my husband will have the willpower to not tell me.



In short, I want to go into labor with an arsenal of names, spend a few hours with the baby and see what suits him/her best. I think that because this is our last and I deep down want a girl this time around I am totally over thinking things, lol.
