What do you think?
Have Brad and Angelina spoilt a pretty name??

Vivienne Westwood is a goddess. Never can a name she possesses be spoilt.

Ditton Vivian Leigh.

quite nice

I love it, hoping Brangelia blows over before I have a DD

Scorps Mon 17-Aug-09 18:43:01

I love it.

Also suggesting Venetia for you, incase it's Vs you like

Chunkamatic Mon 17-Aug-09 18:45:56

I love it, but i'm afraid i would think you had been influenced by brad and ange if I heard it.

Not sure I like the nn Viv either... which it might inevitably get shortened to.

anyone else?!

I have a very glam colleague who is Vivienne makes me think of ms Westwood and MS Leigh not B and A so go for it

JackieNo Tue 18-Aug-09 20:16:45

Love it. Definitely.

Easy to spell because there are two of everything.

It is great.

Quite unusual, means lively.

And it's quite an elegant spelling.

Is also the Lady of the Lake in Arthurian legend, the one who is the keeper of Escalaber (sp?) which is pretty cool

Viv(ien) is one of my best friends - great name

MrsMattie Tue 18-Aug-09 20:34:13

Vivienne is prettier than Vivian in my opinion. Vivi is a cute nickname. Viv isnt great. All in all - OK, but not my favourite.

NancysGarden Tue 18-Aug-09 20:43:40

Love it - one I toyed with myself for DD. As mentioned above, love it

NancysGarden Tue 18-Aug-09 20:45:47

(Oh and agree Vivienne is far superior sp.)

(NT - think it's Excalibur)

MrsBadger Tue 18-Aug-09 20:53:54

Love it

I know one my age and one who's 2

due a resurgence IMO

Vivi is very passable

(NB Vivian is a male version - don't do it)

Meglet Tue 18-Aug-09 21:00:59

great name. Vivienne Westwood should be queen.

I prefer Vivianne, but both are very nice.

Beautiful name! I would have named my dd Vivienne if it hadn't been the name of dh's ex girlfriend - I didn't mind that but he vetoed it!
Didn't know Brad and Ang had used it - where have I been???

Love it.

Heated Wed 19-Aug-09 10:08:38

Pretty

Pinkjenny Wed 19-Aug-09 10:12:10

Reminds me of Pretty Woman. And she was a prostitute. Although obviously she came good in the end.

ButtercupWafflehead Wed 19-Aug-09 10:14:56

Do you say it differently to "Vivian", then?

MrsBadger Wed 19-Aug-09 10:56:55

No, pronounced the same (unless you are Fr I suppose)

but like Hilary, Vivian was originally a boys' name, so Vivienne is the feminine version of it.
