Personal experiences with the name Vi: | Edit

Named after Great Aunt -- Old fashioned name -- But, God, I can't imagine another name for myself ... I have loved my name my entire life (...now 47 (2015))

My parents called me by my full name, 'Viola May' - I absolutley love my full name!
Siblings and friends have always called me "Vi " (pronounced Vī - long i); love Vi as well

My siblings: Mary Ann, Joe Benjamin, James Calvin, and my most beloved younger sister, Fern Leona.

Heritage: proud Cherokee, Irish, English, German, Dutch

"Vī" is a fun name, especially when very young - young friends called be "Vī-Vi" ... And oh so fun when saying, "hi Vī" or "bye Vi". Lots of laughs ... The name connotes friendliness and approachability.

As an adult, my name has always served as a point of interest/ conversation to those whom I have met (...can only recall one woman attempting to use my name as means to insult)

I cherish my "old-fashioned" name
