The fame of actress and Aerosmith daughter Liv Tyler helped to infuse life into this short but solid Scandinavian name that was chosen for her daughter by Julianne Moore. It was on the rise in 2013, gaining 130 spots since 2012.

Liv Tyler was given the name after her mother, Bebe Buell, saw an image of Norwegian actress Liv Ullmann on the cover of TV Guide shortly before her daughter's birth.

Liv combines the succinct charm of a nickname--people might assume it's short for Olivia--with the solidity of being a classic stand-alone Scandinavian name with a life-force meaning.
