Reminds me too much of the word "violent" for me to ever use it.

Violante is an Italian name (though it has been listed as Late Roman, which works, as well, I suppose). A variant of the name Iolanda, which is thought to be formed from crossing the French, Franco-Provencial, Yolant or Yolans, meaning "Color Of Violet," with the Italian Viola.

The entry for Yolanda says that Violante it is a form of it rather than the other way around; shouldn't the entries be restructured accordingly?
