I get a kick out of the people that spell it "viola!" the mental image. inserting a random exuberant stringed instrument into whatever situation being described is always good for a giggle.

Maybe, but usually on things you know, less obvious.

Nor do I, but I think most people that have at least heard it would know it started with a V not a W. Obviously I can't vouch for everyone, but that's how I see it.

I'm sure he is not kidding, but at least bothered to ask/find out how to spell it. I have seen WA-LA used plenty of times for 'voila'.. I for one am glad thirtythree investigated the correct spelling. !

It's not that obvious, especially when you have people mis-pronouncing it was WAH-lah and you don't hear the V. It's not that intuitive, just like epitome.. that was a strange one.
