My husband and I named our daughter Viviane. It is a beautiful name, suits her perfectly. I adore the uncommon nature of her name, and we are constantly have to correct people "No, not Vivian, ViviANN". It is not bothersome to us in the least, instead we find it flattering that her name is that uncommon.
