    Vivian/ Vivienne

    Which spelling do you prefer? Do you pronounce these the same?

    I prefer Vivian to the French Vivienne. The only difference in pronunciation is that with Vivienne there is more emphasis on the last syllable (VIV-ee-in vs. veev-ee-ENN).
    All the best,
    Mischa.

    I prefer Vivienne. Vivian looks more masculine to me.

    I like both but prefer Vivian just a little bit. I pronounce them the same way that Mischa does.

    I actually love Vivien best, followed by Vivian, and I don't like Vivienne at all.

    I pronounce Vivienne with the emphasis on the final syllable and Vivien/Vivian with it on the first.
