Just throwing out our little one's literary name: Viola (Shakespeare's Twelfth Night)

A belated thanks for all the well-wishes!

I'm a little late to the announcement game, but all the same very proud and excited to announce that our little Baby Katz arrived two weeks early on May 9, just before 6pm!
At 5 lbs, 3 ounces,...
Catherine Eliora Fleur is absolutely stunning! And to name after your friend has so much meaning. I just don't think you can possibly top that. I adore it!!
I just love roseymaam's ideas of Annabel and June, and peacelovepurple's Claire, above. Do you also like:
I immediately thought of slightly longer, but still classic Southern name combos:
Thanks, guys! I'm glad you like the name--it took a few LONG threads to work it out ;)
Violie is adorable!!! That one never occurred to me. What about Vylie (rhymes with Kylie)? Might roll off the...
Thanks for the votes!! For some reason I just can't get behind Vi (rhymes with eye). Maybe it's because it reminds me of Viv (which for absolutely no good reason, rubs me the wrong way) or it could...
Poll: Best Nicknames for Viola
DH and I are all ready for Viola Sofia to arrive in May (with the exception of her nursery that still needs setting up)! But we could use a little creative help when it comes to her nickname. Viola...
@stripedsocks, What fun, creative names! Beatrice was on my list (for years--I LOVE it), but DH laughed out loud for ten minutes after I suggested it to him. I think it fits into the Bertha category...
You're welcome! May I ask the B-names you are considering? We tried so, so hard and couldn't find one anywhere. And thank you for the Viola support. I like that it's more unique and, I agree, it has...
Okay, you just blew my mind. Ridiculous, I know, but I never knew that Katze is german for cat. Wow. The last name Katz (actually I think it's the oldest last name or something like that) is Hebrew,...

I had a Charlotte in my preschool class a few years ago. She's probably 6 by now.
Other than that, I only know my Grandma Charlotte, who insists her name never allowed for nicknames. I told her...

@mischa, I was being sarcastic.
Thanks! Hahaha, gourmista, I love "it's not objectionable." I can't tell you how thrilled I was when I got the rare "I don't hate it" instead of laughter and eye-rolling.
I'm feeling very...

We shoulde pretende that this is a kindrid era to that of Elizabethan times, an epoche in which names and words were never misspelt--only more decorativ and free from restrictionnes. (sic)
I think it would work for anything with "son" or "sun" or those letters spread apart in it. Examples: Sonia, Alison, Susannah
I love the name Aoife, personally. I couldn't use it because I've got no connection to Ireland (or Great Britain) whatsoever. I think any lineage that goes to Ireland (no matter how many generations...
I LOVE Aurora Fleur! Gorgeous.
I love Mae and Louisa. I've always thought that Mary is a beautiful name as well.

I grew up with a Linnea in Texas. She was white and pronounced it Lynn-AY.

I have no clue what's popular in British middle class circles, but I'm just going to assume that your concerns are valid, so I'm knocking Beatrice and Felicity down a peg. That said, I think they are...
We're planning to name our baby (due in May) Viola, also! I think Juliet, Louisa and Sylvie (or Sylvia nn Sylvie) are all stunning choices! I love the Shakespeare connotation with Juliet, the...
Hah! @gourmista: Ada does sound like "ate a"! It never occurred to me! So i guess Violet's not a likely middle for you guys, huh? I feel better, knowing that I'm not crazy. I think it also makes a...
