24Vivian and Vivienne

Vivienne has gained popularity among parents wanting a twist on the name Vivian that means ‘living’ or ‘vibrant.’ It has become more prominent thanks to the endorsement from celebrities such as Angelina Jolie who named one of her twins Vivienne.

It is easily recognizable from the famous British designer,

Vivienne Westwood. This spelling of the name is taken from the French language. Viviane is the name of the Lady of the Lake from Arthurian legend, and because this era predates standardized spellings, many variants of this name exist.
