    I voted for Sylvie. Sylvie Iris or Sylvie Ruby would be stunning!

    Charlotte (Lottie), Emma, Isadora, Claire, Nora, Clementine, Lucy, Eleanor, Camille, Elodie, Vivian, Briony

    I can see any one of these names work well with Violet. If you want them to match then I would suggest Ruby or Iris but, if you want the names to be different I would say go for Cleo or Sylvie : )

    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?

    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.
