Hi Just wanted a bit of feebaback...what do people think of Violet with the middle name Bee?
thanks xx

Chippednailvarnish Wed 11-Nov-15 21:42:14

The first thing that popped into my head was Violent Bee...


LettuceLaughton Wed 11-Nov-15 21:43:37

I think of these.

It's sweet, very sweet indeed. Rather too cutesy for my taste though. But, middle names are hardly ever used so there's little harm in it.

GoEasyJulia Wed 11-Nov-15 21:43:59

I'd go for Bea as the middle name. Or even better Beatrice.

Violet Bee may be misread as Violent Bee.

IoraRua Wed 11-Nov-15 21:44:09

Sounds a bit like a paint colour. Not liking it.
I like Violet, Bee however I just can't warm to.

annandale Wed 11-Nov-15 21:46:38

If I'm completely honest, I think it sounds absolutely adorable for a baby, less so for an adult.

JanuaryJuniper Wed 11-Nov-15 21:47:00

I really love it, it's a great pairing!

HackerFucker22 Wed 11-Nov-15 22:07:57

Hmmmm, I just don't warm to it.

Love Violet.... just not sure of Bee? It's just a bit 'nothingy'

celtictoast Wed 11-Nov-15 22:28:07

I like it.

shutupanddance Wed 11-Nov-15 22:30:12

Ahh its sweet but maybe a bit too cutsey? Violet is beautiful

sky1010 Wed 11-Nov-15 22:31:30

Sounds like a gift set of miniature artisan organic honey that you'd buy off Etsy.

Way too twee.

Violet Beatrice is nice.

manicinsomniac Wed 11-Nov-15 22:34:26

It's cute, I like it. But I'd spell it Bea.

Sunshine511 Wed 11-Nov-15 22:55:31

To be completely honest, I'm not a fan at all. Although I agree bea would be better but I still don't like it personally. Love the name violet, not a fan of bee at all. It's what you like that counts though, everyone has different taste smile

Sophronia Wed 11-Nov-15 22:58:42

I'd spell it Bea, or go with Violet Beatrix or Violet Beatrice

Iliveinalighthousewiththeghost Wed 11-Nov-15 23:25:27

Was just about to say the same thing, Chipped.

FedUpWithJudgementalPeople Thu 12-Nov-15 06:37:14

Super cute! I would spell it Bea though. Or got for Violet Beatrice/Beatrix

AuntieStella Thu 12-Nov-15 06:43:47

Colour with noun, often not a great idea.

VocationalGoat Thu 12-Nov-15 06:45:28

It won't work when she's 20. What's adorable now will be embarrassing when she's older. I know a Daisy Bee which is adorable but goodness, it's sure to be a handle when she's older. Violet Bee sounds and reads a little odd. Sorry OP.sad I see where you're going and it's kind of sweet, but the downside of the name is bigger than the upside. flowers

MitzyLeFrouf Thu 12-Nov-15 11:16:42

Of course it will work when she's 20.

It's absolutely fine, it's only a middle name!

YouBastardSockBalls Thu 12-Nov-15 11:17:56

Violet Bee - Violently.

Love Violet. Not sure about Bee.

MrsCaecilius Thu 12-Nov-15 12:26:17

Bea, not Bee. Beatrice or Beatrix even better. 'Bee' on its own is too twee for me.

FlapSnaps Thu 12-Nov-15 12:29:18

What about Violet Cranefly or Violet Drosophila? grin

I think violet is nice, not my top choice but that's what makes like interesting. To be a Bee is an insect, a lovely and important insect but still... As others have said maybe Beatrice? Or something else beginning with B so you can still nickname her Violet B if you want?

FattyNinjaOwl Thu 12-Nov-15 12:39:36

My DD has the nn bumble bee. Because her name begins with a B. I wouldn't use bee as an actual name though. As others have said maybe Beatrice/Beatrix

MitzyLeFrouf Thu 12-Nov-15 12:47:35

I think you can go as daft as you like with a middle name.
