Am I cheesy for loving that Violet and Iris are both vintage flower names? They sound like a pair of sisters straight out of Downtown Abbey!
As much as I love Ruby and Cleo, they both felt too loud as sisters for a name as serene and Austen-like as Violet. Sylvie was a close second to Iris, but there is something about Violet and Iris that I wouldn't be able to let go of!
If you do go with Iris, I would suggest that all future sisters have a more subtle flower name. Delphine, perhaps?| Arabella Monet | Henrietta Plum | Isolde Noor | Agatha Ruby | Marian Primrose |
| Emma Berlin | Cressida Lilac | Jessamine Lark | Vivienne Snow | Ireland Eve |

I love all of your options. Sylvie and Iris are my favorites, but I voted Sylvie. If I had a Violet and an Iris, I'd want the next girl to also have a flower name like Calla or Bryony. It's an elegant theme, but I worry about themes being limiting.
Ruby and Violet is also very nice, though then I'd want the next daughter to have a color name like Pearl. I don't feel that themes have to carry across genders, though, or even that themes have to continue.
Cleo isn't my favorite, and the EO plus the IO of Violet feel tongue-twisty to me.
