The only pronunciation I can tolerate is saying it like Viv-ee-en (pronounced like the letter N as in enter). The other spellings don't fit well with the spelling, at least to me. :/

This name is so interesting and the meaning 'alive' truly expresses my personality. Yes my name is Vivienne.

I like this name more than the other spellings like Vivian, or Vivien, or anything like that, mostly because this name just feels so elegant, or even special. I'm not saying that Vivian or Vivien, or others like that aren't special, but I love how each letter is repeated twice, and the way it's spelled and sounded.

I also like all the spellings but Vivien is probably my favorite - the others are a little over the top.

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

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

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.

Another nickname for Vivienne is Vienna, if you don't like Viv or Vivi.

I think this name is elegant on a girl, and a few of my of ancestors were named this:)

This name is actually very rare in France. Fewer than 50 baby girls are named Vivienne every year.

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.

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.

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. :)

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 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.

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!

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.

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.

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!
