Violette. French spelling, so it needs the long ee sound: vee-oh-let.I probably prefer Violet, but actually I dislike them all.

I say Vee-oh-LETTE. I have Violetta on my list, so it's my favourite. Imo it's a more interesting, even more beautiful alternative to Violet, with no violent or vile sounds in there. I also love Viola as Vee-OH-luh, so my preference is Viola > Violetta > Violette > Violet.

Violette is my neighbor's last name. They pronounce it Vy-oh-let. I prefer Violette and Violet. Violetta is too much.

My instinct is to pronounce it vee-o-LET. The same thing happens with Juliette: joo-lee-ET (as opposed to JOO-lee-et for Juliet).I prefer both Juliet and Violet to Juliette and Violette; and in fact prefer Viola (vie-O-lah) to Violet.

The best way I can describe how I pronounce it is the same way it is pronounced in Jawbreaker (1999) vi-oh-LET.

VIE-let or VIE-oh-let, just like Violet. I prefer Violet-- if you're not living in France, the extra -te just feels unnecessary and fluffy.
