I prefer the variation Vitaly. V would be such an adorable nickname. 🙂

Nameberry likes to put in their two cents, even when no one asked for it ;) I like Viggo and Vito, both are very strong, handsome names. For me PERSONALLY, I'd probably chose Viggo :)

ambercat Says:


I prefer Vito to Viggo, myself. I thought that the nameberry description came across unnecessary harsh.

ccmrath Says:


I agree - Vito sounds very fresh. I think that here in the US the name would more likely be pronounced "Vido" more than "Vito".

I disagree with the nameberry description. I think Vito sounds very vigorous. Can't decide whether I like Viggo or Vito more.
