    Choosing between two Berry favorites.

    Which one do you prefer: Vivian or Violet?

    Vivian, for sure. It seems vibrant and elegant at the same time. Violet has never been my favorite. The color itself is not really my thing, so maybe that's why.
    Names I enjoy:

    Girls: Lucy, Elena, Lake, Sylvie

    Boys: Jack, Eamon, Sylvan, Theo

    Viola. Split the difference. It has the buzzy violin-vibration of Violet, but its imagery is less literal/flowery. It's more formal and name-ish like Vivian, but more unusual than Vivian. Great Shakespearean namesake too.

    Violet!

    Vivian brings up snooty cheerleader in my mind, but it is still a lovely name. I don't think you can go wrong with either choice, to be honest.
