Maybe post a poll?

 

Do you think she looks more like an Isla or a Violet?

 

I absolutely love both, but Isla gets my vote.

Both are nice, so you can't lose...but i vote Violet simply because it flows better with your last name.

Go with your heart, mama! Both choices are so pretty!

Thanks ladies!!!  We have been struggling so much with a name and finally narrowed it down last night to two we both could be happy with.  Trust me, that is huge!    We both are leaning towards she looks like an Isla, but we still aren't sure.  What do you think?

I think she looks like a Violet and I love that name! So sweet and girly. :)  I think that Violet also flows better with your last name.

This is kind of how we are feeling.  Isla just seems a bit more 'right', but then again, I've been trying out Violet on her today and I think she could grow into that as well.  It may come down to us throwing both names in a hat and drawing! orngtongue.gif

I think your chosen name is beautiful. Congratulations on coming to a decision - I know it's kind of stressful to be in limbo!
