Comments and insights on the name Alivia: | Edit

Softer sound than Olivia said Oh-Livia. Alivia sounds fresh and doesn't have the relation to an Olive that Olivia does. I think Alivia will gain in popularity as A names like Alyssa and Amelia have but i look forward to hearing Alivia instead of Olivia :)

Personal experiences with the name Alivia: | Edit

I named my daughter Alivia after her father Alex hated the name olivia.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

My name is Alivia and overall its great and I've never met anyone else with the same spelling. It's original and creative.
But, I must say it's EXTREMELY annoying to have to spell out my name every time I meet someone.

"what's your name?"
"Alivia"
"nice to meet you Oh-livia"
"no its Ah-livia"
"Uh-livia?"
"no its AH-livia, with an a. A-L-I-V-I-A"
"how do you pronounce it?"
"alivia"
"oh, well um, nice to meet you Alivia"

Overall it's really awkward after you meet people, so I've had people call me Al for a while and it has been way easier.
It's up to you though.
