Such a pretty name!
Beautiful and underused
- Personal experiences with the name Vienna: | Edit
I named my daughter Vienna and I get compliments on it all the time, although some people mishear and think that it's "Brianna". My Vienna has vivid blue eyes and a halo of black curly hair. Her name is unique and matches her looks and personality perfectly. Someday I hope to take her to Vienna in Austria.
I've heard someone won't name their daughter Vienna because they referenced the name with Vienna sausages, but I've loved the name Vienna and I've heard of Vienna sausages, but I never once connected the two together until I heard that, it's still a super cute name and I think Verona and Vienna would be cute together.
