A butterfly genus too, so says Wikipedia. I thought it was Greek before I read the description.

I read that there is a Greek stem in this name: iola, which connotes with violet. I think of it as Hawaiian and Greek, which is pretty awesome in my opinion! My husband and I conceived in Hawaii, and if we are having a girl we will use this as a middle name. We will pronounce it ee-oh-lah-nah, which sounds more Greek to me.
