    1, 2, or 3 syllabol MN for Violet?

    Last name is 2 syllabols, so I am thinking either 1 or 3 for the middle name to avoid it sounding choppy. Maybe I'm OVERTHINKING this, but mn for Violet is hard!

    Some favorites so far:
    Elowyn or Elowen
    Eloise
    Claire
    Elianne
    Faye
    Lorena

    Would love other suggestions too! Thank you!

    To test which type of rythm fits best for the middle name, I often do the Mary-Mae Test. It goes like this: You say aloud the name plus one of the following names to get an idea of the best flow. The names are chosen to be similar but with destinct rythms. The Os and os behind the name show the rythm where capital Os represent emphasised syllables.

    Mae - O
    Mary - Oo
    Marie - oO
    Marina - oOo
    Marilyn - Ooo
    Marianne - ooO

    Of these I think

    Violet Marie and Violet Marina fit best.

    Names that fit these rythms are:

    Marie
    Louise
    Jolie
    Christine
    Monique
    Charlene
    Suzanne
    Anouk
    July
    Irene

    Marina
    Lorena (the name you listed, it fits well.)
    Melissa
    Bettina
    Corinna
    Carola
    Ramona
    Clemencia
    Fiona
    Ophelia
    Aurora
    Elana

    Which pattern definitely fits best also depends on your last name.

    I like best:
    Violet Irene
    and
    Violet Ophelia (like the previous poster)

    Violet Elowen and Violet Faye are beautiful, they sound like little flower fairies.

    Some suggestions -
    Violet Dahlia
    Violet Amelie
    Violet Sofia
    Violet Delilah (the alliteration overpowers the choppiness, I feel)
    Violet Rosalind
    olivia, seventeen, obsessively maternal with a lovely black kitten Shura

    a few close to my heart;
    Emmett - Eoghan - Alec - Wilfred - Oberon - Nicholas - Hugh
    Polly - Estella - Jemima - Billie - Imogen - Eilidh - Fenella
