Violet or Violette?
I'm considering this name (though I am bothered a bit by the popularity factor) and wondered what your opinions are on the alternative/French spelling?
We do have some French heritage, so that isn't an issue. And our kids will be educated in French/French immersion, so I know it will be pronounced in French at school.
However, at home and in our family/friend circle we speak English. How do you think English speaking people would pronounce the name with the French spelling?
Would she get the regular Vi-let? Or do you think people would assume Vee-o-lette?
Is it best to keep the English spelling and let her French teachers pronounce is however they like at school?
