    Question Olivier

    I am in love with Olivier. I usually am not a big fan of male French names, but I find this one absolutely perfect. I was wondering what other people thought about it. Love it? Hate it? Not sure? I'd love to hear some opinions!!
    (I'm not pregnant or anything...I'm a curious teen who loves names .)

    I love this name! I just watched Rebecca with Laurence Olivier so it has a particularly dashing sound to it.
    While it might be mistaken for Oliver, the same thing might happen to an Olive mistaken for Olivia, Amelie mistaken for Amilia or Bennett for Benjamin.
    I think it is nice and if you like it then I say go for it!

    I understand how it might be confused be Oliver, but that doesn't bother me very much .

    I think it would be confused more in spoken form for Olivia, especially if you're in a part of the world which doesn't pronounce the -rs at the end. The French way of saying it is Uh-liv-ee-ay, which isn't that far off Uh-liv-ee-ah for someone with sloppy speech. Even the anglicised form of Uh-liv-ee-air isn't far off of it either. Written down, there won't be much problem, just people misreading it as Oliver, but spoken he might get called by a girls' name. Just something you might want to bear in mind.
