    I love the name Violet for a girl but am stuck on a middle name. Some options are:

    a) Marie (my middle name is Marie but it's sooooo overused and common....and goes beautifully with everything! lol)

    b) Irene (family name but wonder if it sounds a bit too old fashioned?)

    c) Anything you can think of!

    I'm not sold on the two I mentioned but I'll go back to them if noting else works. :) Any ideas/opinions?

    I am definitely using Marie as a middle name if it's a girl, that's the only thing I am sure about! It would be after my nanna who was called Mary but Mary doesn't go with our last name. I don't think it is overused at all.

    Yeah that's how I got my middle name, Marie. My grandma is called Mary and gave that to my mum as her middle name and then they altered it for me. :) Maybe it's just this generation where it feels overused and for our babies it won't be. It seems like every other one of my friends has the middle name Marie and whenever people hear it, they're just like "oh yeah, a classic....my mum/aunt/sister, etc has that middle name!" lol I think there's a reason though, it's a beautiful name and goes with EVERYTHING!!

    Hmm I like Violet Greta that someone suggested. Violet kind of sounds better to me with a second name that ends in "A" for some reason, like Violet Ava or even longer ones like Violet Miranda :)

    What about Maria, that is also a form of Mary :)
