    I prefer Violet, but Lavender is lovely, too. I don't like Lavander spelling.

    I prefer Violet. I've just never found Lavender to be that namey. I can't imagine any type of person pulling off Lavender reasonably well at all. I'm all for word names, but Lavender takes it too far for me. I just can't see it as a name, and I'm definitely not brave enough to use it. I love the color purple, though, and I think Violet's just darling. It's one of my favorites.

    Lavender has a really nice sound, but I prefer Violet. They're both lovely, I just like the feel of Violet more, and it's more solidly a name in my mind.

    For a first name I would use Violet, I love the name Lavender it reminds me of Matilda's friend in Matilda and the lavender bush that my grandmother grew in her garden, it's my favourite scent and always takes me back to her garden everytime. However the name is harder to pull off as a first name and many people including myself are put off by the Lav part of the name.

    If you want a name that means or relates to purple you could also use Mauve or Lilac?
