    Thanks guys! I do agree that it seems to be slowly taking over the naming boards, but since this would be a name for me, a teenberry, it would be pretty rare for my age group. Do you think that makes much of a difference?

    I love Violet. It's on my top 4. I think of (of course!) the color purple/violet, and it makes me think of a sweet, happy little girl who loves to wear dresses and have tea parties.

    I love Violet. It's sweet and vintage but not frilly. I know it's popular online, but I have never met a Violet in real life, so I don't think it's too common yet. And in the teen age group it'd be seen as a cool name different from the legions of Emilys and Jessicas.

    I think it's an excellent choice. As you noted it's uncommon in your age group, but it's a mature, dignified, sweet name that will serve you well. It will be striking, but in the right way. It's not ludicrous by any means to meet a teenaged Violet, so it wouldn't engender the same skepticism that Wren or Willow would.
