Viola is a girl’s name of Latin origin, meaning “violet.” This beautiful floral name will be ideal for baby as they grow and blossom throughout life. The famous American actress and producer Viola Davis rocks this name with style and is one of the most influential celebrities of this era. Viola is also related to the Italian word voila for a stringed instrument, which produces a rich and beautiful alto tone in orchestral pieces. Without the viola, plenty of musical works wouldn’t have the important context needed to give each piece its depth and power. With a name like Viola, baby can learn to be the glue in life, just like her namesake is in music.
