Finding out the gender of bubs in 2 weeks!
Which do you prefer; Stella, Evangeline, Violet or Vivienne?
Sibling to Leopold, will have two middle names as per family tradition (not 100% sure on what those will be yet, but none more than 2 syllables), surname is one syllable and starts with 'J'.

DF isn't as keen on the last two names, but I've included them in the short list as I love all 4 names original.gif

TIA xoxo

Violet is my fave from your list. Mainly due to it being dd3's middle name. original.gif

#3 ~Peaches~

Posted 05 December 2012 - 10:04 PM

Stella and Violet are my favorites from your list, lovely names.

#4 **Anna**

Posted 05 December 2012 - 10:05 PM

I love all your names! Probably my order would go
Evangeline
Vivienne
Stella
Violet

However I love them all so my order may change tomorrow original.gif

Evangeline, by a mile.

Vivienne is pretty too.  Violet is nice but I'm not keen on "Vi". Stella is ok, a bit too "Streetcar named Desire" for me.

Vivienne or Stella.

Violet is NMS and I really dislike Evangeline.

I like Evangeline the best. The only one I don't like is Vivienne (but I don't mind Vivien/Vivian)

#8 PoshMosh

Posted 05 December 2012 - 10:25 PM

Stella or Vivienne

#9 la di dah

Violet juuust edges out Vivienne - I love both. Vivien would edge out Violet.

I like Evangeline but it feels too Christian for me personally. Still a pretty sound and I like to see it on other people's kids.

I don't like Stella at all.

I love the spelling Vivien too, meant to put Vivienne/Vivien oops haha. Thanks everyone for your input so far!

I am not religious, but love the sound of Evangeline and it's meaning. Plus the nicknames Evie, Eve/Eva and Angie.

Stella is a long time favourite, but it seems to become more popular these days.

Violet I just adore and I love "Leopold and Violet/Leo and Vi" wub.gif
So as you can see I am very torn haha

Evangeline

In order:

Vivienne spelt this way. To me Vivien is pronounced slightly differently to Vivienne.
Violet followed closely by
Evangeline
Not a fan of Stella, sorry.

Purely a matter of taste but the only name I like in your list is Vivien and I think that spelling goes the best with Leopold.

I would also like Estella with Leopold.  Both 3 syllables.

#15 José

Posted 06 December 2012 - 03:05 AM

My order of preference would be Evangeline then violet then Vivienne then Stella.b

#16 Monroe

The only name i don't like is Evangeline. The other 3 names are absolutely gorgeous.

Love them all OP!

Stella was my favourite years ago and then my uncle and aunt had twins and called one of them Stella so I stopped thinking about it because I knew I'd never use it for my own kids.

Then my other uncle had a bub and they named her Violet. I was 'purple with envy' - biggrin.gif
Vi is a super cool NN - love it!

I fell in love with Evangeline after hearing that Matthew Sweet song .... A colleague's sister used it for her bub a few years ago and I still think it's gorgeous.

So that left Vivien for my own list. One of my absolute faves! ....and I have to say that Leopold and Vivien is the combination that makes me swoon wub.gif ... and I love the NN Viv.

You can't go wrong in my humble opinion! cool.gif

Thank you everyone for your input. Still really stuggling to narrow this list down, hoping for another boy as the naming process will be so much easier! original.gif
