Is the name Iris for a baby girl too basic?

I like short easy names like Iris, Ivy , Jane. But I feel they are too basic or are they okay?

    Iris is nice and uncommon 

    Ivy: reminds me of poison ivy 

    Jane: very plain/common

    Iris is okay, though I don't care much for most floral names.

    Iris is actually one of my favourite female names.

    I also love Jane...and Ivy is not a bad name either.

    Jane and Ivy are a little too common for my tastes, though 😄

    If it's short but has a meaning, or sounds dynamic, then it's fine

    Iris is a pretty name. But she'll be back here in 13 years complaining that her name is too short and wanting a nickname. So here you go:

    Risa

    Rissa

    Rissi

    Ira

    Not at all it's lovely. Floral names are great. Fern and Laurel are also very pretty.

    Iris is good name. Short doesn't = basic.

    It might sound rather highfalutin to some people, not in the slightest basic.

    No, They're great. All these new long ridiculous names are hard on the kid. Btw, I love Ivy!
