Violette (sp)

New interesting things I found on the name Violet. Which we will now be spelling Violette if Ben can stop making omlette jokes about spelling it that way. lol

"Violet;From the Old French violette, a diminutive form of viole, which is derived from the Latin viola (a violet). The name has been in use since the Middle Ages in France. As a flower, Violet has a variety of meanings: Love; Modesty; Virtue; Affection; Faithfulness ("I'll always be true") and a Good Luck symbol for women. Violets can be either violet or white. The violet is February's birth flower."

Love that its a good luck symbol for women and I had no idea that violets could be white.

That is it for today's piece of useless trivial information.

You are welcome. :)
