    Olivet?

    What are everyone's thoughts on the name Olivet? This name has been on my mind a lot lately, I'm just not sure if it's totally usable or not? Also, just to see if there is any issues with this, how to you pronounce it? I just want to make sure that's not a huge issue! Thanks!

    I think it's usable, it's a name - it's just not as common as Olive/Olivia/Oliver so it looks a bit unfinished IMO.

    I pronounce it like Olive with -t. And how do you expect people to pronounce it?
    I kinda like Olivet...I don't really know. I like Olivia and Olive but Olivet is a bit different. Looks like someone a bit snobby from France. I don't like the fact it's one letter shy from Oliver, which is a boy name. That may be confusing... Also, what about Oliviana? It's a lovely version of Olivia, also French but seems more feminine and attractive to me.

    I think it's gorgeous and I really love it.
    The only thing that holds me back is that it sounds like 'all of it', which I find kinda weird.
