Or something similar?

Hmmm?

lovely name ,though Vi isn't so nice
Viola too

I love the name and think if it's a girl I will have it as a middle name. I just don't like Vi but you don't have to shorten it although it may happen even if you don't want it to.

I don't actully love it, I just can't bloody think of any names I do love!

Love Violet, though agree with MaryAnnSingleton that Vi isn't good.

Awww, i like violet, was one for dd, but my surname is king.

Fimbo Sun 13-Jul-08 21:26:57

It's my mil's name. She hates it.

Nancy66 Sun 13-Jul-08 22:24:54

I think it's a great name.
it's still my No1 choice. It's cute, feminine, a little different but not daftly so.

smiled when i saw this on the board. I love the name, but have to laugh when my 2yo DD keeps shouting "yoo-hoo, Violet" down the garden hmm
I don't know who Violet is grin

LongLiveGreenElizabeth Sun 13-Jul-08 22:28:32

i PREFER Vilette if that's nto too Bronteyesque.

LongLiveGreenElizabeth Sun 13-Jul-08 22:29:34

She's in Fifi and the Flower Tots gigglewithc!! Does she also call out "Primrose"?

dinny Sun 13-Jul-08 22:30:22

Love it, my Nana's name

would shorten it to Letty

gigglewitch Sun 13-Jul-08 22:43:43

thank you LLGE! grin
I think she's got a book and vid at Grandma's!!
she only mentioned Primrose once, and it appeared to be something to do with another child...shock I thought it might be a new child at nursery grin
am sooooooo out of touch blush

MadBadandDangeroustoKnow Sun 13-Jul-08 23:52:51

I love all the flower names and especially Violet/Viola and Primrose. Don't be deterred by Fifi and the Flowertots - the name will last a lifetime but most children's TV series last only a couple of years!

I agree MADBAD, there is a character from a book or TV, or a game (Zelda!) or a doll, or a toy with every name I can think of.

Violet Elizabeth Bott.

Fab name!!!! I may be biased though!!! lol. I hate being called Vi though but thankfully people don't seem to shorten it, I'm thinking when I'm old and wrinkley with a blue rinse then I'll make peace with the name Vi!!

Lovely.
Viola lovelier still.
