Livia is my grandmother's name. She was given her name by her older brother (by 7 years), Livio, who wanted to name his new sister after himself! She immigrated to the United States from Italy in 1928 as a child, and was given the name Laura by her school teachers because they thought it was a more fitting American name. Now, as an 88-year-old woman, she goes by Livia, pronounced LEE-vee-a.
