Re: What name would you chose ?

I prefer Violet...I don't really like the name Allison anyway (just personal preference), but Violet is much more on-trend without being insanely popular...it might be a middle name option for us; I had a great-aunt named Violet & DP & I both like it.

Yep I agree ! Allison just seems too popular . I think the main reason why DH wants Allison is for the nickname Alli .

Allison has been top name between 30-50 for the last 12 years. Violet just broke under top 100 2012 for the first time.

We try to be even less popular than that. I think you need to take both names with you and see. Does the middle have to be Grace? Maybe Violet Allison or Allison Violet...

I see what you mean 😃 yeah we both are partial to that as a middle name as its a family name on both sides

Re: What name would you chose ?

They are both cute. I doubt any of us are going to be able to sway you guys though! DH and I didn't figure out a name for DS until a week before he was born. DD was a little better and I was at least 7 months pregnant still, lol. If I had a choice, I would probably pick Violet, but that's because I know a lot of Allisons....but they are all my age. I don't know any small people Allisons. lol. What DH and I did when we couldn't agree on the names we liked....we threw them out. For DS, DH wanted Paul and I wanted Solomon....and wanted Paul for the middle name. Since we couldn't agree on those 2, I told DH that neither could be his first name....because it would turn into 'that person won'. lol. So since we both liked Paul it was his middle name. We finally agreed on Brycen for his first name. We are both really happy we stepped back and found a name we could both agree on equally. Good Luck!

I adore Violet! And that's coming from an Allison

ETA: As for the nickname Alli, more people called me Al (including my parents) or Big Al (my softball nickname, since I was usually the smallest on the team.) Not many folks really call me Alli, even though I prefer it over Allison
