This is my favorite spelling of this name. I find it beautiful, classy, and should be more popular than it is.

Love love love love this name. And I love this spelling best! I would totally name my kid this. I think it's gorgeous, a little long but very nice. Viv, and Vivi are nice nicknames.
TIDBIT: each letter in this name appears twice. There are two v's, two i's, two e's and two n's. How cool!

This is a lovely name. It has both an elegant appearance and sound, and the nickname Vivi is adorable for a child. I will consider using this for a future daughter of mine.

This is my favorite spelling of this name (my second favorite is Vivian and I don't like any of the others). It looks and sounds so pretty and classy.

I love love love this name and had set it aside for future daughters. Unfortunately now that Brangelina have decided to use it I'm sure it will become so popular that I will have to choose something else. I don't want my child being one of 5 Vivienne's in her kindergarten class. Darn those two!

I love this name, and prefer this spelling.

I love this name, and I have long before Brangelina used it on their daughter. Still, I think that they made a good choice in naming her that.

Utterly gorgeous. All class, and sassy, too.

I think I prefer this spelling above all other variations of the name. This name is very classy and elegant, and I hope it doesn't become overused.

I rather like this French variant of the name; it's quite nice, adaptable to any age range and, in my opinion, one of the only decent names that Brad and Angelina have given to their children. :)

This name is beautiful! I prefer it over Vivian or Viviana!

I love love love this name, but only with this spelling! I love that each letter is repeated twice, it makes it so special! Lovely! Just lovely.

Vivienne is very beautiful. I prefer this spelling over Vivian, which looks dated to me. I just don't really like how popular it's been getting since Brad and Angelina named their daughter it--however, if things go as planned, I'll be using this as a middle name anyhow.

Vivienne Westwood is a very famous fashion designer, most known for her modern punk and new wave designs.
Grace_Scarlette  8/24/2011
Such a classy, sophisticated, cosmopolitan name-- embellished in the pearls of a pleasantly antiquated past.

My one concern is restricted within the nickname-department... "Viv" or "Vivi" takes to sounding abominably infantile, for my taste. I could certainly foresee the possibility of using "Vinnie" (granted that I have not already put "Vincent"/"Vincenzo" into use) or "Enna" as a diminutive, however.

This name is actually very rare in France. Fewer than 50 baby girls are named Vivienne every year.
bonjour_mon_joli  8/26/2013
I think this name is elegant on a girl, and a few of my of ancestors were named this:)
vixenbria  4/13/2014
Not given in France.

Another nickname for Vivienne is Vienna, if you don't like Viv or Vivi.
mommabird  12/19/2014
I don't like this spelling, it feels pretentious to me. Vivian/Vivien/Vivienne is a rather plain sounding name, I feel as though Vivienne is trying to make it grander or more elegant than it really is.

I like Vivian better, it's less floofy and overdone. Same goes to Vivianne, Viviane, and Viviana.

I do not yet know a 'Vivienne' (probably because I am in the UK) but I love this name, and its femininity.
