The most common spellings for babes born in 2012:
Vivian (2240), Vivienne (978), Vivien (189), Vivianne (85), Viviann (19), Viviane (13), Viviene (7)
Even though, Vivian is more popular it's still the male spelling in my head, so I'm not as fond of it. Viviane doesn't bother me as much because I read it in "The Mists of Avalon" for a female character. The only thing that makes me a little hesitant on this spelling is that the child will always be having their name misspelled, which gets pretty annoying after awhile. At the same time, if you and your husband love a spelling, it's important that you guys like it over what is the most common. My preference is Vivienne, which probably would still be spelled wrong a lot It's a beautiful name whichever way you spell it.
Edit: I know you said you only liked the Viviane spelling and your husband liked the Vivienne. I only included Vivian because it's the most popular and others had mentioned it.
