Middle name for Violet

I know there have been a couple of these posts, but I’m having some specific issues. Including my family being obnoxious and my SO’s last name being very difficult. It took us a long ways to get to [name_f]Violet[/name_f] and my mom and sister have been pretty pushy about names. I just need a break from their suggestions.

Initially wanted [name_f]Colleen[/name_f] after my grandmother but I don’t think [name_f]Violet[/name_f] [name_f]Colleen[/name_f] flows. I like [name_f]Frances[/name_f] (apparently my grandmother had an aunt she didn’t like named [name_f]Frances[/name_f] :rolleyes:), [name_f]Francine[/name_f] or even [name_f]Francie[/name_f].

I can’t use Geneiveve or [name_u]Georgie[/name_u] for sensitive personal reasons, although I think they are in the family of names I like.

So do you like [name_f]Colleen[/name_f] or [name_f]Frances[/name_f]/[name_f]Francine[/name_f]/[name_f]Francie[/name_f] with [name_f]Violet[/name_f]. Or maybe some else? Last name is very [name_m]German[/name_m] and starts with U. :wink:

I actually think [name_f]Violet[/name_f] [name_f]Colleen[/name_f] sounds great and [name_f]Violet[/name_f] [name_f]Frances[/name_f] is very nice as well. Other thoughts for you:

[name_f]Violet[/name_f] [name_f]Audrey[/name_f]
[name_f]Violet[/name_f] [name_f]Cecily[/name_f]
[name_f]Violet[/name_f] [name_f]Amelia[/name_f]
[name_f]Violet[/name_f] [name_f]Claire[/name_f]

[name_f]Violet[/name_f] [name_f]Alexandra[/name_f]
[name_f]Violet[/name_f] [name_f]Olivia[/name_f]

I like [name_f]Violet[/name_f] [name_f]Francine[/name_f] best from your list. [name_f]Violet[/name_f] [name_f]Francesca[/name_f] could be an option for you, which I find absolutely stunning.

Actually, I think [name_f]Violet[/name_f] [name_f]Colleen[/name_f] flows well.

[name_f]Violet[/name_f] [name_f]Coralie[/name_f]

I dislike the sound of F after a V first name.

[name_f]Violet[/name_f] [name_f]Nadine[/name_f]
[name_f]Violet[/name_f] [name_f]Naomi[/name_f]
[name_f]Violet[/name_f] [name_f]Coralene[/name_f] / Coraleen (to honor colleen)
[name_f]Violet[/name_f] [name_f]Coralie[/name_f]
[name_f]Violet[/name_f] [name_f]Sophie[/name_f]
[name_f]Violet[/name_f] [name_f]Frances[/name_f] (honestly doesn’t sound bad at all I am super picky, and I like [name_f]Frances[/name_f] as a middle since it was my grandmother’s middle name.)
[name_f]Violet[/name_f] [name_f]Colleen[/name_f] is fine.
If you want to honor someone in her middle maybe use the month she was born in or her birthstone. [name_f]Violet[/name_f] [name_u]June[/name_u], [name_f]Violet[/name_f] [name_f]Autumn[/name_f] (season they were born in), [name_f]Violet[/name_f] [name_f]Pearl[/name_f], etc.

[name_f]Violet[/name_f] [name_f]Francine[/name_f]
[name_f]Violet[/name_f] [name_f]Esmee[/name_f]
[name_f]Violet[/name_f] [name_f]Emmeline[/name_f]
[name_f]Violet[/name_f] [name_f]Imogen[/name_f]

Hmmm… maybe it’s with the last name that is bothering me… or maybe I’m being overly critical. :smiley:

That’s a good suggestion, except in this case it’s [name_u]March[/name_u], aquamarine, and [name_f]Spring[/name_f].

[name_f]Violet[/name_f] [name_f]Marina[/name_f]?

I do think [name_f]Violet[/name_f] [name_f]Colleen[/name_f] is a sweet sound and a sweet connection, although I can’t speak to the flow with the last name. The suggestion of [name_f]Violet[/name_f] [name_f]Francesca[/name_f] is lovely too. Since you said the last name is [name_m]German[/name_m], would [name_f]Violet[/name_f] [name_f]Annalise[/name_f] flow well?

It sounds like you are on the right track and I am sure you will settle on something wonderful!

I absolutely love [name_f]Violet[/name_f] [name_f]Francine[/name_f]. Beautiful!

I personally have no problem with [name_f]Violet[/name_f] [name_f]Colleen[/name_f] though I do greatly prefer [name_f]Violet[/name_f] [name_f]Francine[/name_f]. I also think [name_f]Francine[/name_f] is more in line with the style of [name_f]Violet[/name_f] and the combo fits in with today’s other spunky vintage names without being over use. [name_f]Francine[/name_f] is a great name which I’m frankly surprised has yet to catch on. But regardless of my opinion follow your gut and pick the name that you want most.

Good luck!

Me too! I love the [name_f]Francine[/name_f] and the variations, plus the nicknames, [name_f]Francie[/name_f] and [name_u]Frankie[/name_u], are so cute to me. I actually would like it as a first ([name_f]Francine[/name_f] [name_f]Violet[/name_f]), but SO didn’t like it as a first name because of “[name_f]Franny[/name_f].” Plus, initials would be FU, as a middle name though it works.

If the name [name_f]Violet[/name_f]!

With a three syllable first name I some short and sweet for the middle name.

Like maybe [name_f]Violet[/name_f] [name_m]Cole[/name_m]…shorten [name_f]Colleen[/name_f]?!?

[name_f]Violet[/name_f] [name_u]Bay[/name_u]
[name_f]Violet[/name_f] [name_u]Quinn[/name_u]

Good luck:)

I can’t pass up an opportunity to honor grandma. [name_f]Violet[/name_f] [name_f]Colleen[/name_f] is totally fine. Have you considered [name_f]Colette[/name_f]? It was my first thought as an alternative to [name_f]Colleen[/name_f], but realized it definitely doesn’t work with [name_f]Violet[/name_f]! But if [name_f]Violet[/name_f] isn’t 100% maybe you could do [name_f]Colette[/name_f] [name_f]Francine[/name_f] and us [name_f]Coco[/name_f] as a nickname.

I knew a little [name_f]Frances[/name_f] who went by [name_f]Francie[/name_f] and it was easily one of the cutest nicknames I’ve ever experienced on a child. Can’t believe it hasn’t caught on. I think if you chose another nickname, like [name_f]Francie[/name_f] or [name_u]Frankie[/name_u], she wouldn’t be called [name_f]Franny[/name_f]. [name_f]Francine[/name_f] [name_f]Colette[/name_f] would be cute, and honor grandma with the EEN sound in [name_f]Francine[/name_f] and the COL in [name_f]Colette[/name_f].

I think [name_f]Violet[/name_f] [name_f]Colette[/name_f], [name_f]Violet[/name_f] [name_f]Coraline[/name_f] and [name_f]Violet[/name_f] [name_f]Cora[/name_f] would be great to honor your grandma. Too bad about [name_f]Frances[/name_f] because that sounds perfect and very cute and vintage. I have to say that [name_f]Violet[/name_f] [name_f]Colleen[/name_f] flows perfectly fine to me and that if you love it you should just go ahead with it because in the end honoring your grandma who you loved trumps any other name that you simply liked.

I really like [name_f]Violet[/name_f] [name_f]Colleen[/name_f] and [name_f]Violet[/name_f] [name_f]Frances[/name_f]!
