Liviana? Thoughts or reactions?
So, my husband and I are expecting our first in late April and it was just confirmed that baby is definitely a girl! Yay! Anyway, I have been a long time name lover, but am really picky with girls names. I tend to like the more frilly, feminine names. We have a few names on our list, but the one that is standing out is Liviana. From what I understand, it is an old Roman name, a variant of Livia I believe. We plan to call her Liv and Livy as nicknames. I like that it can stand on its own as a name, but has lots of nickname potential depending on her personality (Liv, Livy, Ana, etc.). I do worry about the popularity of Olivia, but am not too bothered. What are your thoughts on the name? Is there anything terrible that I am missing about this name? Thanks so much!Girls: * Liviana * Kate * Elise * Juliet * Geneveive * Annalise *
Boys: . Julian . Cormac . Hudson . Max . Truman . Sawyer . Caleb . Everett . Conrad. Dean. Archer .

If you look at my signature you'll see that I love the name Livy (and most of it's derivations)! It will be my daughters name if I ever have one.
I'm also worried about the popularity of Olivia as well as the fact that our last name begins with an O so I think it might not be usable.
I love the name Livia. And I also really like Livinia. I'm not quite as fond of Liviana, since it feels just like an alteration of Liliana instead of it's own name--and I prefer the stress on the first syllable.
However, I don't dislike it and I think it's definitely a valid option. What led you to choose it over some of the other options?
Liviana Juliet would be a lovely combo I thinkLivy/Lucy : Geneva/Gwen : Coralie/Alice : Noelle/Eve
Eli/Bennett : Jude/Zane: Luke/Leo : Levi/Phineas

Not a mom, but day dreaming of the day I will be.

I say go for it! I love the name Livia and plan on using it as a middle name for a girl when I have one. That being said, I did consider Liviana for awhile, because I love names that end in -iana! I love frilly, feminine, and--yes--"over-the-top" girl names. Hey, they're so beautiful, if you're not gonna be brave enough to use them, I will! (I actually kind of thought I made up Liviana at first, but I have seen it around here and there.) I think it's beautiful and unique. If you like it, you should use it.
pet peeves: nicknames as given names; unconventional spellings; masculine names on girls
not-so-guilty pleasures: five-syllable girls' names; virtue and nature names; over-the-top antique names for boys
(if i repeat name suggestions in a thread, it's because i like them! no apologies here for repeats of great names! )

I love Liviana!! I can't remember how I came across it, but I discovered it last year and thought it was a great name. However, it does slightly strike me as a trendy made-up looking name. But I think it's very pretty.Quade ~ Dashiell ~ Harrison ~ James ~ Lucas ~ Colson ~ Fabian
