It's quite a nice name, nicer then a lot of Ancient Roman names. The only real Ancient Roman name that everyone loves is Julia, but Octavia is a lovely name.

I used to be in love with this name. It is quite the pretty and unique name. It's a strong, beautiful, unique name. A name for a dynamic person.

My mother reversed the first two letters of this name and named me Cotavia, a modernized version, which has gotten me compliments my entire life.

I'm not sure I really ike this name or not. I think what really bothers me is the first syllable. "Oc" seems harsh, but "Tavia" (if you pronounce it 'tah-vee-ah' and not 'tay-vee-ah') is pretty. I suppose it's because one doesn't hear the "oc" beginning in most names. There's really no way to fix that though.

I have seen Tavia used as a nickname for this.

I really like this and I really like Tavia. I'm not sure if I would use it. Because it probably does sound pretty harsh to most people.

I don't really like the sound of this name. I guess it's the beginning that just sounds quite harsh. Plus, the name is quite old-fashioned.

My daughter has a good friend named Octavia. The name is very unique, and because of my association with her, suggests an energetic, intelligent and high-octane child. An excellent name all around.
-- marauder34  1/17/2009
A very important sounding name.

Octavia is also used in Spanish, where it's fairly common. It's quite a pretty name. [noted -ed]

A very dignified, beautiful, and unusual name. It would really suit a child born on August 8th (eighth day of the eighth month).

This name is really cool. :)

Octavia and its derivatives sound kinda like the name a music nerd a would give to their child. Which may not be a bad thing- just a thought.

Two things come to mind:
1. Vocal octaves.
2. The bratty kid I went to school with.

A terrible name for a child if you let her know the etymology of it, but as far as it sounds, I think it's a very attractive and noble-sounding name for a girl.
