Re: How would you pronounce the name...

I would pronounce it Vee oh letta...the etta in the end changes the "Vi" to a "vee" for me.

vi-o-letta

but I like 'violet maddelena' better, if you're looking for opinions. Too many 'ah's at the end of the names in a row.

Thanks everyone!

I don't think we'll do Maddelena as a middle name, maybe Rose or something. We want to keep the first name Italian (eventhough Violetta, depending on who you ask can be Italian, German, French and Russian). It's tricky finding another Italian middle name that does not end in A :/

Vee-oh-letta. It's obviously an Italian name, and pronouncing "i" like "ee" is the rule for Italian. Oh, the obscure things you learn in a Vocal Diction class.
