Yuck. I hate this spelling.

Athenas_Owl Says:


I completely agree

Michaela Says:


Alivia, won't you take this Aleve pill to alleviate the pain?

paulapuddephatt Says:


I say uh-lih-vee-yah or roughly like that. Or with slightly more of the ol sound at the start, maybe.

paulapuddephatt Says:


I say Olivia the same way as you, but not sure I would pronounce Alivia the same way. It took multiple attempts to get the name past my predictive text too, as it tried to change it to Alicia. I'm interested that we don't all pronounce Olivia the same, even with the usual spelling. I'm in England though, and there are cultural variations, which is one factor.

paulapuddephatt Says:


I much prefer Olivia. I don't see how this can be pronounced the same way, unless you are pronouncing Olivia incorrectly. Olivia also just looks so much prettier. It's a classic name, and lovely as it is.

autumnreverie Says:


I hate this spelling.

Essa Says:


Ah ok! That's what I meant. I didn't know how Alevia was pronounced.

Zoey_Artemisia Says:


I thought her name was Olivia, I didn't realise the name was spelt Alevia. I didn't actually know that Alevia was even a name so I assumed she was just pronouncing Olivia with an accent or something. Now I know what her name is though I pronounce it like ah-lev-ia.

Essa Says:


Well you made out as if you were saying Olivia but you were wrong so I assumed she actually said it a different way...

Zoey_Artemisia Says:


Like Olivia?? I don't think I understand what you're asking.

mommyofquinn Says:


Like Ah-lee-via

otheralix Says:


I assume this is because the pronunciations are different. I say OH-livia and AH/UH-livia differently.

Essa Says:


So how did she say it? I knew an Alivia who said it exactly the same as Olivia.

Thats my name! :)

SimoneKadele Says:


Alivio means "relief" in Spanish.

htw Says:


I prefer olivia. This is still a lovely name but it reminds me of 'aleve', again more of a weird association on my part. Good name.

Paige_Mackenzie Says:


I used to live next door to a family who had a daughter named Alivia. The way they pronounced it was just the same as Olivia so when they started calling her Ali one day, I was so confused! I personally prefer Olivia, but I don't hate this spelling.

Zoey_Artemisia Says:


I know a girl with the name Alevia and I called her Olivia for the first few weeks I knew her because even though I asked and asked how to pronounce it, the way she said it still sounded like Olivia. She eventually had to spell it out to me.

Guest Says:


Every fiber in me hates this name.

faithnamer Says:


I guess it depends on the way you pronounce Olivia. I say it like Uh-lih-vee-yah, so in that case, I think they would be pronounced the same.

Theodora_Phoenix Says:


I would think this to be pronounced AY-lih-vee-yah, as opposed to OH-lih-vee-yah.

lesliemarion Says:


It sounds like Aleve, the OTC drug. Or some other medicine.
