Darling Husband and I made decisions awhile ago, however, I’m starting to question them. (I feel like this is exactly the same as wedding dress regret. Picked too early and now questioning lol)
For a girl we were looking for something a little quirky, but without being overly “unique”
For a boy we have to go with a “J” name. Darling Husband is a J, his first son is a J, his uncles are J’s. We don’t want him to feel left out. The middle name is a family name that we won’t switch.
What do you think?

I love both those names, esp the Violet.

I like Jackson! Violet is pretty and I have never met a Violet before, so it’s orginial (to me, anyway)! Nice picks. 🙂

I really like both of them! I can’t find a single fault. Violet is beautiful, it has old world charm without being an old lady name. Same with Lillian, and they sound lovely together.
Jackson is a great name too, I like how you can shorten it to Jack if you want, but Jackson is just as easy to say, and I like how it is spelled properly (not Jaxsen). Edmund reminds me of King Edmund of Narnia, who I think is a great character, and Edmund is nicer than Edward which is becoming crazy popular (thanks Twilight).
I think you have made great choices. 🙂

Jackson is a really common boys name right now so if you don’t want a popular name I’d keep that in mind

I think those are great names! When we were about to have our girl, we wanted the same thing; something quirky, but not overly unusual. We went with Rowan Lilian, so I’m partial to the middle name you chose, plus our youngest boy’s name is Jack, so I like that too! 🙂

I think your boy name is super nice!
I also love Violet! But the middle name is just “ok” to me. It sounds a little like a mouthful to me, but maybe it’s because I’m Southern and added extra letters or something. 😉

I LOVE THEM BOTH!!!!!!
And totally understand the “regret” feeling after picking them early. I’ve even re-thought our names b/c we’ve had them so long already… we’re sticking to them though =)

I really like both of them. I would just make sure they sound nice with your last name.

@AmeliaBedelia: Lillian is DH’s grandmother’s name who passed away. I think that one is going to stick too. However, I understand what you’re saying. Our last name though is quite short.
@kerensa: our last name is, not common, but one that goes with everything. It’s short and easy to say.
@runsyellowlites: I wish I could stop overthinking everything lol
@mcklough: that was one of the main reasons I created this post. I feel like Jackson might be too popular but I’m having a hard time coming up with another J boy name.

@CorgiTales: oooh that’s ok, maybe she’ll be a violin playing genius!

@regberadaisy: do you have other suggestions for J boy names. The current one’s in use – John, Joshua, Jacob, Jason, Juan, Julio, and Jaggar

I like them both. Although to be honest at first glance of Violet Lillian all I thought was vio-lin. haha. not sure that matters though 🙂

I like Violet as a girl’s name, I think it’s pretty.
Not a huge fan of Jackson though, seems to be a popular boys name lately.
