    Viviana, nn Vivvy?

    I like Annie as a nickname with your others, even though it doesn't end in Y. It could be short for many names that include "Ann" or end in "ana" or "anna."

    I know a mom with a Claire and a Helen. Not sure that's your style, but she seems to be a no-nickname kind of mom, too, so I thought I'd throw it out there.

    I also think any name with the initials "E.F." works, especially if the first name starts with the short-e sound.

    It would be a cute nn for Josephine Violet or some combination like that, but it's a bit too cutesy and flimsy on its own, IMO.
