    Violet. I like Violetta as a frilly GP, but I doubt I'd ever use it, and while I appreciate the Frenchness of Violette, I don't really like the sound of it for an actual name (vee-oh-LET), and it bothers me that most Americans don't even try to pronounce it correctly--and most people who like it don't even seem to care about pronouncing it correctly, either. It's not the same as Violet, but most Americans just lump it in the same boat with it. :/

    I adore Violet, though--feminine, with just enough frill to make it totally girly, vintagey, sweet, and it has ties to my favorite color. I would love to meet a Violet, and I'd love to have a Violet!

    Violet is becoming very common, yet no one seems to be using Violetta. The poll results show that more people are into Violet, it's more popular, so if you want something more unique I'd say go for Violetta. Besides, it has the cute nn Letty!

    Violetta for me. I adore Violet but I can only see myself with a Violetta, not Violet. Violetta is beautiful, underused, girly, but not over frilly.
    Call me Cynthia, Angie, or Luna.
