    Iris or Ivy?

    My husband originally was uncertain of Iris because he knew a co-worker years ago with the name...then we were thinking maybe Ivy...though I don't love it as much. Now he says Iris is still an option but he is leaning towards Ivy. We like names that are familiar and feminine for a girl, but that aren't in the top 100 names.

    2 questions....iris or ivy? We have a 2 syllable last name. Sister is Asha Genevieve

    Second, middle names...
    Ones we liked...
    Celine
    Simone
    Maelys
    Evangeline
    Elise
    Elena
    Eliana
    Bree
    Brynn
    Faye
    Vivienne
    Rhiannon

    Other options?? Sort of lean towards French and longer middles, though I know all these dont fit the bill...love Vivienne, but not sure it works with either name.

    One month left...want to have a solid name ready to go...any help/opinions appreciated! Thanks!!
