    Baby will be here this week! Help me with middle name spelling!

    Thoughts on spelling for middle name. I prefer Vivienne but wonder if it's double consonant overkill...

    I usually prefer the Vivian spelling but since Margot is also six letters long, I think the more lengthy French spelling of Vivienne looks better in this case. I have a double consonant fn and surname so it's no big deal for me.
    All the best,
    Mischa.

    I prefer the spelling Vivienne for a first name but since Margot is all girl, I would say Vivian is the best middle name. GL

    To me, Vivian and Vivienne have slightly different pronunciations. Vivian is a clear VIH-vee-uhn while Vivienne is vih-vee-ENN.
