    Short List - Violeta?

    Hi everyone. Our baby girl is due at the end of the month. We are set on the middle name Elizabeth named for grandmothers and great-grandmothers in our families, but are still considering the first name.

    My husband really loves the name Violeta, but I think it makes more sense to spell it Violetta - does it matter? What do you think of the name? The rest of our final choice names are as follows:

    Carolina Elizabeth
    Louisa Elizabeth
    Celestia Elizabeth
    Isadora Elizabeth
    Theodora Elizabeth
    Zinnia Elizabeth
    Georgiana Elizabeth

    I'd love your thoughts and input. Thanks!

    Depends on if you are going for the Italian version... Violetta or the spanish version... Violeta.

    I much prefer Violetta, as it looks fuller and lends itself better to the nickname Letty. Violeta is perfectly fine, though. Out of your other options, I love Isadora. They'd be perfect sisters.
