I love Iona, but as long as your surname isn't field or such like. wink

Iris or Iona. smile

Bowlersarm Sun 05-May-13 14:15:34

Love Iona

All lovely (though Luna is a bit out there) so whatever goes best with your surname. Lyra & Iris personal favourites.

I like Esme

DoodleAlley Sun 05-May-13 14:24:49

Luna sounds a shade too close to looney in my book but kids will always find a reason to mock so if you like it go with it

Iris or esme

Lyra or Esme. Don't like Iona much.

Luna or Esme get my vote (regardless of whether its ez-mee or ez-may you want) smile

Love iris

Like all of them apart from Luna. Lyra is on my list for a girl.

Luna. Is the most interesting.

Iris or Lyra.

Say them out loud in full.

Eskino Sun 05-May-13 15:37:57

Iris or Lyra too.

I had them both on our shortlist. In the end we chose the only name we felt surpassed those two. I think I would go for Lyra actually.

HeffalumpTheFlump Sun 05-May-13 16:23:52

I love Lyra smile

Alisvolatpropiis Sun 05-May-13 16:36:38

Lyra is lovely.

TheRealFellatio Sun 05-May-13 16:41:45

Not wild about Lyra but I love all the rest. I'd go for Luna.

Kaekae Sun 05-May-13 16:42:19

Iris for me. smile

TheRealFellatio Sun 05-May-13 16:42:41

Although on second thoughts I can see the potential for teasing and cries of 'Loonie' so I'm changing my mind to Iris.

In order of preference

Iona - favourite
Esme - yes
Iris - yes
Luna - It's ok
Lyra - no lycra

KitNCaboodle Sun 05-May-13 18:18:42

Iris for me

telsa Sun 05-May-13 19:26:25

Iona, Esme and Luna....all very gorgeous and uncommon and dreamy/elegant. Lyra...nah, too like Lycra or Liar. And Iris, is rather sharp, and horrid and overused in my opinion.

I have a friend with daughters with two of your names. Her third daughter is Vida.
