How many do you know? It seems really popular online. Also do you like it?

Nellooo Sun 09-Apr-17 02:08:06

Yes. I'd have had a Violet if we'd had a dd.

Queensparkles Sun 09-Apr-17 03:27:59

I don't know any and I LOVE IT

ImogenTubbs Sun 09-Apr-17 03:37:36

I don't know any, and also love it!

MrsEricBana Sun 09-Apr-17 04:26:50

Love it too and don't know any.

SuperBeagle Sun 09-Apr-17 04:28:37

I like it.

I know one, she's 3 years old. And my best friend intends to use Violet if she has a girl this time around.

Don't know any.

Beautiful name. One of my favourites.

I'm not having any more children but I still find myself getting angry that I can't name my imaginary DD Violet as it sounds utterly dreadful with my last name. blush

I don't know any but by weird coincidence I've heard it a few times on tv the last couple of days!

LOVE the name by the way, very pretty

ItchyFoot Sun 09-Apr-17 05:18:19

I love it. It was my great grandmother's name and I really wanted it for dd1 but dp said no. I know a 5mo Violet.

Jemimapiddleduck Sun 09-Apr-17 05:33:15

Love it

Jemimapiddleduck Sun 09-Apr-17 05:33:32

Oh and there are three in my sons class

Paninotogo Sun 09-Apr-17 06:09:45

I know 5!! Very very overused.

Jooni Sun 09-Apr-17 07:07:37

I don't know any personally, but it is getting popular. Gorgeous name though, I really really like it.

pinkmagic1 Sun 09-Apr-17 07:14:12

I know 2. My grandmother and a girl of 6 at my dd's school.
I like it but feel it's going to get very popular.

insancerre Sun 09-Apr-17 07:17:33

I know 2
A 6 year old and a 5 year old
It is a very pretty name

Thatextrainch Sun 09-Apr-17 07:59:26

It's around 70th on the Ons data having risen in 2015. I wanted it for my dd too but dp said no, still a bit sad about it, I think it's one of the more feisty flower names and dd could totally pull it off. I haven't come across any where we live but it does seem very popular on MN

I'm surprised no one has come on to say they hate it because it is too similar to violent

dimdommilpot Sun 09-Apr-17 08:50:19

I know 3. A 8 year old, a 5 year old and a 1 year old. I dislike the name but couldn't tell you why.

RockyBird Sun 09-Apr-17 08:52:20

Vi for short.

Hellofromme Sun 09-Apr-17 08:58:04

I've got an auntie Vi. Well dead and gone now. Would probably be in her 90s now.

Really dislike it and one of the worst of the granny chic names.

Sugarpiehoneyeye Sun 09-Apr-17 09:08:14

Pretty name.

FreeNiki Sun 09-Apr-17 10:57:28

I know 2 babies of 1 year old called Violet.

I don't like it as it sounds exactly like Violent.

Mrsknackered Sun 09-Apr-17 11:55:32

I know a 21 year old, a an 18 year old and a 6 year old.
I'd still use it smile

Mrsknackered Sun 09-Apr-17 11:56:00

Oh and I had a great aunt Vi.

ColourfulOrangex Sun 09-Apr-17 12:24:07

I know one, she is 4

Sophronia Sun 09-Apr-17 15:52:22

I don't know any, but it is getting more popular. I'm not keen tbh.
