I love this variation! It sets the name apart from Violet, and it looks very elegant. I loved the name Violet until I saw this spelling.

Most interestingly, the word 'viol' in the French language means 'rape'. Rapette. Hmm. Catchy.

But the French name itself is not actually related to the French word 'viol.' It does in fact come from the flower. However, I imagine it's not very popular in France due to the coincidental similarity.

Pronounced vi-oh-LET.

I like the name Violet, but I dislike the way it's pronounced -- VIE-oh-let. For some reason, I have a bit of difficulty pronouncing it. However, Violette has a much better pronunciation, and a nickname can be "Vi" (pronounced "vee") or "Lettie" instead of "Vie."

This is my name! I love it, and wouldn't want any other. However, it gets a bit annoying when most people spell it "Violet". Everyone pronounces it Vi-oh-let rather than Vee-oh-lette.

I loved the name Violet, and I have a thing for names that end in "ette". But when I heard the name Violette, I'm all, "Jeez, this is soooo my new favourite name!"

This is the name of my first daughter and to me it is a "Grand", "Elegant" and Beautiful name. For some reason her name reminds me of royalty (maybe because she's my princess), it's a lovely name. And that French touch at the end ("ette") makes it perfect!

The moment I saw this name, I instantly fell for its sheer beauty. I had previously liked the name Violet, though only to a certain extent. But when I saw this name, I kindled an admiration for not only this name, but for other names with similar meanings. To generalise, I just find this name stunning, and I would simply love to give this name to a young girl.

It looks a bit over the top, but Violet is a pretty name and this variant is no exception. It's a little too much for me to ever use, but I like it.

I love this name, it is very beautiful and I like this spelling rather than the other one, it looks more complete.

The name Violette was pretty steady in popularity in France in the first half of the 20th century. It died down a bit in the 70's, and was revived in the late 1990's. It is now more popular than it has ever been.
