    How do YOU pronounce...

    Hubs and I love the name Vivian. However, I think the spellings of Vivian and Vivien are too masculine. So, I prefer Vivienne and Vivianne<--favorite. But it has come to my attention that people might pronounce Vivianne as Vivi-ANNE and that's not the name we love.

    Two part question: Would you pronounce Vivianne as Vivian or Vivi-anne? Do you prefer Vivienne or Vivianne?

    Thank you!

    I would pronounce it Vi-vee-en and voted for Vivienne, which I think is the french spelling.

    I wouldn't pronounce any of them like Vivian. Vivianne would be 'vivi-ANN', Vivienne would be 'vi-vi-ENN', Viviane would be 'vi-vi-AHN', and the rest are misspellings. I think in the US Vivienne would more or less like Vivian, so that's what I voted for. It's a lovely name!

    I think Vivienne is the only option that I would pronounce like Vivian, so that was my vote. Honestly, though, I would prefer Vivian or Vivien.
