    Too Close to Violent?

    I've been having a crush on Violante recently, but when I searched it up on Nameberry, it said "too close to violent". I think the pronunciation is vye-LAHNT. Do you guys think this name is still usable? I don't care for Violet though. Thanks!

    The pronounciation could be vi-oh-lahn-tay, which I find is too close to violent. Vi-lahnt is basically on syllable away from being violent, and I don't know how many people would get that pronounciation from how it looks written down.

    I say it as vee-oh-lahn-tay. I could be wrong. But either way it is too close I think by looks alone.
    I totally understand why you love it though! It's always been one of those names, where I'm like "Darn it! Why does it have to sound like [fill in the word]?" I think it's so pretty.

    It's too close to "violent" for me, sorry. What about the other form Nameberry lists--Violanthe--or even another Violet alternative, like Viola, Violetta, Violaine, Violene, etc.?

    Here are some real prn's of it, it sounds like "vee oh lahn tay" which doesn't sound as close to violent as it looks but I think people would constantly misprn it as violent. http://www.forvo.com/search/violante/
