9: Violette Livingston -New Name (NP)

Submitter desires a feminine name.
No changes.

Consulting Herald Brian Dorcha Ua Conaill.
Submitter is from Stormhold.

I chose the name 'Violette Livingston', as Violet is a name I have loved for as long as I can remember, and Livingston is my great grandfathers family name. I modified the spelling of the name Violet to 'Violette' as a nod to my mundain name 'Anntoinette' and would very much like to keep it this way.

The name Violet, has been documented from the area of Perth/Perthshire in Scotland, which is roughly 50 miles/70km north of Livingston in Scotland, which would make the combination of the two plausable.

S.L. Uckelman. "Violet". In S.L. Uckelman, ed. The Dictionary of Medieval Names from European Sources, Edition 2023, no. 1.
