My DH and I met a little girl named Villemo and I really adore her name. According to numerous internet sources it’s a literary name. [name_f]Do[/name_f] you like it? [name_f]Do[/name_f] you think it could work in the US?

Ooh, I’ve never heard of this, but I like it! I’m a sucker for -o ending names, especially on girls. If I saw it in the abstract, I think I would assume it was a Scandinavian place name (like Malmo), but it’s got a nice sound and, unfamiliarity aside, I see no reason why it couldn’t be wearable.

Off to look it up…

I don’t really like it, it reminds me of the word “villain.”

Villemo seems easy enough to pronounce, so I think it would work in the US. [name_f]Do[/name_f] I like it? No, not really. The ending -mo doesn’t do it for me. The first part Vil reminds me of [name_f]Vilma[/name_f] sort of a soft W so that’s fine.

I wouldn’t be sure how to pronounce it, vill-mo, villeh-mo or vile-mo. I think the first pronunciation is quite attractive and nickname Momo would be adorable on a little girl!

At first glance I thought it was a male name. It reminds me of [name_m]Willem[/name_m] (Dutch for [name_m]William[/name_m]).

Upon looking I prefer Vellamo which seems to have a proper history (although first results are a tap company!?)

Hmmm, never heard of it but to me it kind of sounds like a medication of some kind
