How would you like to pronounce Livian? Lee-vee-ann or Lay-vee-ann? 

I like it! it's unique and very seeet name :)

Pronounced like Vivian. And the short name would be Liv, short "I".

I like it. I went to school with a Livia (she was actually Livia, it wasn't short for Olivia) and one of my cousins is married to an Olivia who always goes by Liv. 

Livian has that similarity to both Olivia and Vivian, but I think the -n ending gives it a bit of androgyny which I quite like. Liv and Livvy are cute nicknames, and Elizabeth works well as a classic middle.

Though I prefer names with history for the most part, I actually like Livian. It reminds me of Livia and Vivian.

Elizabeth as stated above is a classic name that works well with Livian.

Livian reminds me of liver, But I like it anway. it's Not Vivian (which I have personal reasons to loathe) and Liv is a gorgeous short version! I'd say Liv- ee- an.

Livian Elizabeth: yea.

Live: nay.  Liv is the standard spelling of this nickname, so spelling it with an e at the end makes me assume that you want a long i sound.  I know live and live are related English words with different pronunciations, and live with a short i is probably used more often--but even so, the spelling Live would be confusing.  Stick with Liv.

Definitely a nay for me. It sounds made up... Like, as you said, you tried to combine two names.  I think you would get a lot of confusion and difficulty understanding the name.
