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.

I like it a lot! It is a nice alternative to Oliver, another name that I adore.Just when the caterpillar thought the world was over, it became a butterfly.
