Purple/blue Flower

Violet, a name that's both floral and regal, is perfect for your pooch. It's like naming your dog after Violet Baudelaire, the inventive heroine from "A Series of Unfortunate Events," or Violet Crawley, the sharp-tongued Dowager Countess from "Downton Abbey." Plus, it's a nod to the color of royalty, so your dog will always feel like a queen. And let's not forget, violets are symbols of loyalty - a trait every dog embodies. So, if you want a name that's a blend of wit, charm, and nobility, Violet is the way to go. It's not just a color, it's a statement!
