    Re: How do YOU pronounce...

    Wow, Vivienne is way out front! I'd say them all the same: viv ee en.

    I say them all the same too! I've always assumed that Vivien and Vivian are pronounced the same (Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman is spelled Vivian, but it's not vivi-anne). And I've never heard viv-ee-awn. I guess everyone pronounces everything differently!

    I would pronounce them like this.
    Vivian/Vivien = Vi-vee-en
    Vivienne = vi-vee-ENN (with the emphasis at the end)
    Vivianne (never seen this spelling I don't think) = vi-vee-ANNE

    LOVE Vivienne. It's on our top 5 names for my twins right now.

    Vivian and Vivien feel masculine to me too even though I have never met a male Vivian.

    I have never met a Vivianne. I probably would be inclined to pronounce it Vivi-anne, but I'm not really sure.
    Wife to one great guy
    Mama to six pretty ladies: Scarlett (12), Penelope (9), Alice (3), Fiona (3), Lucille (15 mo.) & Coraline (15 mo.)

    & 4 angels gone before us: Christian (7 wks), Amos (6 wks), Naomi (16.5 wks), & Hosanna (6 wks)

    I haven't meet a male Vivian either, but one of hubs favorite shows is "Bottom" and the main male character's name is Vivian.
