    I have to say my memory of the Jezebel story is hazy to say the least though I knew Jezebel the online magazine had named itself in her honour. I suppose in a Lilith sort of a way. I will go have...

    I have an Iris. I LOVE it. You will find you don't need a nickname - it's so easy to say.

    Delilah - what springs to mind?

    We've decided (I think!) on Delilah Lark for our second daughter due early June.

    BTW have you considered Xanthe? It's on my top 4 list (expecting a girl) and I liked it for shared qualities with Iris - 2 syllables, ancient greek. It means 'golden one'.

    I have an Iris... so I'm biased. But here's why we chose it: 2 syllables (no annoying nn), flower image, vintage image PLUS she was the Ancient Greek goddess of the rainbow. I think it sounds strong...
