    I like Eloise more. Just personal preference, no real reason 🙂

    I like Violet more, not too fond of Elloise for some reasoN.

    I used to love the name Violet and when I suggested the name to my DH he said it reminded him of the word violent, so now I can’t get that out of my head.

    Eloise is beautiful, and I am absolutely smitten with the nickname Ellie. Violet reminds me of the spoiled rotten girl in charlie and the chocolate factory who blows up like a giant blueberry…

    I was going to type exactly what dv3849 said until I read the other comments. So +1 for Eloise because of Ellie and +1 for Violet reminding me of the girl from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

    I think both are equally sweet.  I used to teach a gorgeous kid called Eloise.  Her knickname was “wheezy” though rather than Ellie! Violet is super cute too.

    I like both but I voted for Eloise, have yous picked a middle name/having one? I know this is quite obvious but you could use one of these as a middle name Eloise violet? X

    I picked Violet, but then I’m fairly into flower names.

    I’m not super keen on Eloise, although not sure I can put my finer on why. I think when it’s written it looks a bit odd? Not sure.

    You have some cute nick name options with both – if that makes a difference?! I like Vi, or Lettie for Violet.

    Both are beautiful names. When I think of Eloise I think of a more playful, personality, that’s a little rambunctious. When I think of Violet, I think of a leader, queen bee sorta personality. Not in a ‘Mean Girls’ sorta way, but a powerful head turner of a woman she may grow up to be. That’s just me. Sorta a Betty and Veronica contrast (Archie Comics)

    Trust yourself. You’ve felt her and I’ve heard that mums can tell a whole lot about their baby just from womb activity. So let the baby you’ve known for these months guide you. Also think of who you want her to be cause some names can be too heavy for a child, but just right for the adult they grow up to be.

    Blessings!

    Beautiful names.

    I prefer Eloise 🙂

    Maybe it’s because I named my cat Violet.
