    Iris Avonlea or Iris Emmeline?

    My sister and brother in law are expecting their 2nd daughter. they have been at odds with deciding on a name for her. Their 1st daughter is named Ivy Lenore. My sister wants Avonlea and brother in law likes emmeline. I told my sister about nameberry and said" Lets see what the winner would be!!!! Okay so this babys name fate is in your hands...... vote!.... ps if anyone has any other ideas feel free to leave them

    I ADORE Iris Avonlea! It also has a great literary connection to Ann of Green Gables, just like Lenore is connected to Edgar Allen Poe's The Raven. Such a beautiful name, and I like the flow better than Iris Emmeline. Good luck!

    I like Iris's got a nice rhythm and a crisper feel. I don't love Avonlea, and I think it sounds kinda clunky with Iris. Maybe because both names are accented on the first syllable?

    I prefer Iris Avonlea it has a lovely cadence and is quirky but classic at the same time...very lovely name!

    Iris Avonlea definitely flows better
