Viola Merle or Merle Viola? + more

Finally let go of [name]Violetta[/name] in favour of [name]Viola[/name] (VEE-oh-la), but I love [name]Merle[/name] equally as much! So, which do you think sounds better, [name]Viola[/name] [name]Merle[/name] or [name]Merle[/name] [name]Viola[/name]?
Also, for a boy, do you prefer [name]Hugh[/name] or [name]Hugo[/name]? What do you think of [name]Finch[/name] for a middle name?

Thank you!

Oh, and another thought for a boy, [name]Rufus[/name] [name]Beau[/name]? Does anyone know how to edit posts??

Thank you!

Still love [name]Merle[/name] [name]Violetta[/name] :wink: But both [name]Merle[/name] [name]Viola[/name] and [name]Viola[/name] [name]Merle[/name] work equally as well.

[name]Hugh[/name] [name]Finch[/name] is a bit abrubt but [name]Hugo[/name] [name]Finch[/name] works - can’t really comment on them though because they just aren’t my style (I wouldn’t consider any of your boys names…). I like [name]Hugh[/name] the best out of all of them though.

You can’t edit/delete posts anymore for some unknown reason…


[name]Viola[/name] [name]Merle[/name] and [name]Hugo[/name] [name]Finch[/name] are great combinations. I like the look of [name]Viola[/name] [name]Merrill[/name] better but it depends on each individual’s spelling preference. [name]Hugh[/name] is one syllable so [name]Hugo[/name] flows better with [name]Finch[/name]. [name]Rufus[/name] [name]Beau[/name] is ok but they remind me of dog names.

My vote is for [name]Merle[/name] [name]Viola[/name] – lovely! I think I like [name]Hugh[/name] over [name]Hugo[/name], but they are both great. I like [name]Rufus[/name] but not with mn [name]Beau[/name]…don’t know why, though.

[name]How[/name] do you pronounce [name]Merle[/name]? If I’m saying it correctly, then I much prefer [name]Merle[/name] [name]Viola[/name]! For your boys’ names I like [name]Hugh[/name] better than [name]Hugo[/name], but if you’re set on using [name]Finch[/name] for the middle name than I think [name]Hugo[/name] [name]Finch[/name] has better flow.
[name]Hope[/name] that helps… :slight_smile:

I would vote for [name]Viola[/name] [name]Merle[/name] and [name]Hugo[/name] [name]Finch[/name]. Very cool names with a lot of personality! :slight_smile:

Thank you everyone, lovely of you to comment! I think I’m swaying towards [name]Viola[/name] [name]Merle[/name] (I pronounce [name]Merle[/name] like [name]Pearl[/name], although maybe I’m doing it wrong? :stuck_out_tongue: )

No, [name]Merle[/name] is pronounced like [name]Pearl[/name]. And I love it.

[name]LOVE[/name] the bird connection, btw. [name]Viola[/name] [name]Merle[/name] and [name]Hugo[/name] [name]Finch[/name] are absolutely darling together, though I would [name]LOVE[/name] to see [name]Merle[/name] in the FN place. I don’t think [name]Merle[/name] [name]Viola[/name] is quite right, though.

Anyway, [name]Viola[/name] [name]Merle[/name] is beautiful. [name]Hugo[/name] [name]Finch[/name] is stunning. [name]Rufus[/name] [name]Beau[/name]… yeah, now that one of the pp’s mentions it, I think dog names. Sorry. What about another bird middle name, like [name]Lark[/name] or [name]Dove[/name]? [name]Peregrine[/name]? I’m no help at all :lol:
