This means "purple" in Spanish. When talking about the color (and probably the same with the name) it is pronounced VEE-OH-LAY-TAH.

The pronunciation you listed is incorrect. Violeta is pronounced Vyoh-leh-tah in Spanish. Your pronunciation would be written Víoleita/Víoleyta. Neither are names.

This is my favourite Bulgarian name, not only because it's a name of flower, but also because the pet form is Leti, which is not common and sounds great.

The Bulgarian name "Violeta" (the stress is on the "e") does not have a nameday on 16th April! "Violeta" is connected to the Bulgarian word "violetka" (the stress is on the "e"), which means the flower "violet". That is why "Violeta" has a nameday on Palm Sunday (the Sunday before Easter) - the day of flowers and willows (the names of the other trees also have a nameday). In 2006 Palm Sunday is on the 16th April!
