- 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?"
"nice to meet you Oh-livia"
"no its Ah-livia"
"no its AH-livia, with an a. A-L-I-V-I-A"
"how do you pronounce it?"
"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.
I have a 5 year old (born in 2010) little sister who's name is Alivia. I personally love the name because it's different from the original Olivia.
