help with baby name?

I like you ladies, so let me know....

The only name DH and I have agreed on for DD2 is Violet Lucille. Is it too cutesie and childish? I just don't know if I can picture an adult named Violet, but he loves the name so I'm trying to be open minded.

  • I absolutely love the name Violet and definitely picture it aging well. The first thing i thought of when i thought of an older lady named that was Maggie Smith's character on Downton named Violet. :-)

  • I love Violet, but Lucille sounds too old to me. No offense.

    None taken! The only reason we are using Lucille is because it's a family name on his side. I'm not the biggest fan of it either, lol!

    Thank you all for the responses!!

    Yes

    Love the name - it's really sweet, I think.  Besides, even if your next DD has some spunk to her, Graceful's reference of Maggie Smith's character is an example of someone suited so well with the name that I think it would work out nmw.  :)

  • I like both names. My grandma's name was Lucille and she was a spitfire!
