    How do you pronounce Violet?

    I notice as I share my current favored baby name of Violet, some people say the o more pronounced than others..... I personally say a soft o like in Olive.... not Olivia.

    What do you say?

    I say it like "v-eye-let" but some people do pronounce it "vee-oh-let" which is usually a nn for Violetta.

    Vy-oh-let. Similar to the O in Olive I guess? Then again, I say the O in Olive and Olivia the same way. Long o sound, but quick and short.

    Vie-let. But when you say that you can still hear a slight O. I'd say it's 97 percent almost the same and definitely interchangeable.
