    I like Mirabelle the best, but I like the nn Mari (mah-ree) more than Mira/Miri (although Miri is adorable!). Mirabelle Violet would be my favorite (although I think it is a pretty big stretch to honor a Mary this way), followed by Marielle Violet, nn Mari.

    Good luck!

    I really like both Marigold and Violet, but not together.

    I really love Mirabel more, but think Maribel would be closer to honouring a Mary?

    I like Rosemary a lot, but wouldn't double-barrel botanicals with Violet.

    Have you thought about Mae/May, or Molly? Both are traditionally short forms of Mary. Though honestly I don't mind Mary and would think about using it, itself, Mary Violet is sweet and not trendy but not harsh sounding.

    I also like Mirabelle best, but would never make the connection to Mary. Of the suggestions listed so far, I'm fond of Marilla, Marilyn, Maribel, Marina and Mariska. (please vote!)

    Miriam and Mariamne could be options?

    I think all these honor Mary. Mira is my favorite out of your list. Marielle is nice too. What about Marian?
    All the best,
