which do u prefer?

Violet - lovely name. Much classier and timeless imo than Frankie which is a name I don't like.

Both depend on the accent they're said in I think. I really like Violet but live in an area where the T wouldn't be pronounced properly so took it off my list

I love Frances nn Frankie, but not just Frankie. Violet is very pretty too

Violet. Not keen on Frankie at all for girl or boy

Lovely name!

Frankie but with either Francesca or Frances on her BC.
I can't stand Violet. Its one of those nice names that got spoiled by becoming too overused. Once elegant now quite faddy imho

Love either (with Frances as the given name for frankie), but I'm confused that they're the two choices; they're so very different from each other you must surely have some instinctive preference for one or the other?

I prefer Frankie if the given name is Frances or Francesca. Violet reminds me of Violet Elizabeth Bott from Just William.

Violet. I will never understand how or why Frankie became an acceptable name for a little girl.

BayaGoji Sat 24-Dec-16 10:05:41

Violet because Frankie is too masculine.

Violet 100%

Definitely Violet. Cant stand Frankie for a girl.

Frances or Francasca - nn Frankie

comewoowoowithme Sat 24-Dec-16 16:37:02

Violet or Frances.

Gollygeewhizztits Sat 24-Dec-16 17:52:52

I like Violet but prefer Frankie. I would have full name as Frances or Francesca though.

ViewBasket Sat 24-Dec-16 21:13:13

Violet. I also like Frances, but not Frankie.

Violet doesnt sound nice at all. Looks and sounds like Violent. Never understood its popularity.

Why not call her Francesca. Let a NN evolve naturally and maybe frankie will be nn.

I like Frances. Francesca sounds a bit affected.
Violet is quite nice but could be vile, violent ...
Viola is quite nice but is it VeeOLa or Vie-Ola?
