    I too think it depends on how you pn it. Our Violet has the nn "Vio" and people out in public think we are saying "vile", lol.

    It's too close to violent. I had a Violet (a name I hate) in my class and some of the kids mispronounced it Violent....and she was!

    Yes, sorry.

    But switch out that V to the original Greek I and you have a winner! Iolanthe is nowhere near "violent," even to mean 12yr old boys.

    Yeah...but I love it still! How about Vionnet? It also has the exotic appeal that Violante does....
