Irene vs. Iris

Having a hard time deciding between these two. Irene means "peace’ and I read that Iris means ’rainbow’ (?) I would like to know which name you prefer and WHY please. Thanks in advance :)

Both have lovely meanings but I like the sound of Irene better.

I really like both. I don’t think you can go wrong with either. Irene is more classic and Iris is slightly more trendy, but I wouldn’t argue against either one.

Iris is a flower and was also a messenger-goddess in greek who rode rainbows between heaven and earth to deliver messages from Olympus. I have a friend named Iris Rose and she loves her name.

I like Iris better; Irene feels a little dated to me.

Irene is way too dated for a baby. Iris is adorable!
