Thread: Milena vs Violet

Milena Sophie Belle, too. Milena Sophie Eve would be pretty, too, but a lot of people seem to have issues with the flow of Sophie Eve.
As for Milena, here in America, most people I know would say it either mih-LAY-nah or muh-LEE-nah. I'm guessing more Latinate people would say it closer to the first. Seeing it more often has made it appeal to me more, but I'm not sure I would use it. I feel like it's one of those names that *pow*, I suddenly have an epiphany that I love it, but when I really think about it, I'm not sure it really suits my style, but I still like/respect it. I feel the same way with Vivienne and Scarlett.
There is a baby girl (about 8 months old) in my church who is Milana Kristina, and they announced her name as mih-LAY-nah. Her family is Belarusian, though.Lise
