Quoting HopingforaMiracle:" <blockquote><b>Quoting dat uterus tho:</b>" My name is Vivian. I prefer that to Vivienne ... [snip!] ... it's the masculine spelling. Ryleigh is ugly."</blockquote> I didn't know it was the masculine spelling :oops:"


Technically, it is. Vivian = masculine and Vivienne / Vivien = feminine.



It's one of those very few names that are truly gender neutral, but the spelling does make the difference, 9 times out of 10, there isn't a "masculine" and "feminine" spelling, this is one of the few odd ones where there is.

Most people wouldn't, don't feel bad! I study anthroponymy like a big dork, that's the only reason I know.
