I named my 5 year old daughter Olivia Juliet simply because of it's elegance. We call her Via for short. Even though it says that Olivia is #6 on the popularity charts, we have never come across one Olivia other than my daughter, we live in NYC. Her name fits her very very well, she has curly dark hair, piercing blue eyes, and a beautiful smile. Her and her twin brother, Elliot Jasper "Eli" make such an adorable pair!♥

My mother named me Olivia in 1963 because she had always loved the name. I think she got it from the Shakespear's play 'Twelth Night', and at the time there was a famous actress, Olivia de Havilland. And I became a dancer! Growing up nobody had my name, although things have changed and Olivia is almost common now. I would have liked that growing up, but now I like my name. It feels like an old name to me which connects me to the past, and I like that. I am Olivia Helene. I think Olivia goes well with a one or two syllable last name. My maiden name was a mouth full and always difficult to get out. I have been called Livs, Liv, Lily, Olive and Oh as nik names. I especially like Oh and Livs.
