A friend is heavily pregnant with a girl and loves the name Liv. She likes Olivia / Livia, but she thinks Olivia is 'too popular' and besides, she loves Liv. What's the general consensus? Should she just name her baby Liv on her birth cert or give her a 'proper' name and have her known as Liv?
I always liked Olivia and the shortened form of Livvy but Olivia's are absolutely everywhere here now.. sighs and so OH has said no chance now.. it's turning up on too many Darren & Sharon birth announcements with weird spellings too..
My DD name is Olivia and we call her Livi and her brother calls her Lily and her friends call her lilla! Actually I don't know anyone who calls her Olivia! Glad I have Olivia on the birth certificate though. We named her after Olivia de Haviland (terrible spelling I know!)so she doesn't give a damm!
