For me I prefer Violette too Juliette. Violette is really elegant, demure and adds a shiny femininity to Violet (even though I do prefer Violet) whereas Juliette is just far to fussy and over the top. Juliet is already a very elegant, feminine choice. Juliet even oozes feminine connotations due to Shakespeare's play and she's already gorgeous - I think the extra letters just adds fuss which isn't needed - thus I dislike Juliette but love Juliet. Whereas I think Violette is gorgeous!

I much prefer the dramatic, stunning and romantic-sounding Juliette. I know it's a Nameberry favourite but I just can't get into Violet; it seems harsh to me. In both cases though, I like the more streamlined -et ending better.
maltwin1, you pronounce Juliet and Juliette [very] differently? I say them both joo-lee-ETT... thinking about it Juliette could be more like zhoo-lee-ETT though. Is that what you meant?~Love names, literature, royals and horses~ <3

Juliette spelling pronounced it the exact same way as if it were Juliet. I'm not sure if that was an error on their part or if it is truly just a different spelling of the same name. Violet and Violette, however, I have heard as very different. I'd heard Violette on a tv show recently (Mr. Selfridge) and I was curious about it so I looked it up. From everything I've read it is totally different pronunciation from Violet. I believe the nameberry page mentions this also. I actually haven't looked up Juliette so I'd be curious to see what it says about its pronunciation.
