If I had a violin, the body length is 10 5/8 inches (between 1/8 and 1/4) and the vibrating string length is 12 inch (1/2 size), and the total length is 20.5 inches, would it qualify as a 1/2 violin?

If I had a violin, the total length is 22 inches (3/4 size), the body length is 12 inches (1/2 size), what size would this violin be?

Do we determine the size of the violin by its stop or by the body length and total length?

You have a 1/2 and a 3/4 respectively.

You mainly use the body length. Scroll length can vary greatly. Also the width of the bouts and the height of the sides, not to confuse them with violas.
