[name]Tess[/name] and [name]Phoebe[/name] seem to be similar in style to [name]Olive[/name] for me. [name]Hazel[/name], too.
I love “V” names! At one point I considered using all “V” names:
[name]Olivia[/name] (although I’m guessing this is a no. haha)
I loved that sibset. Although I wouldn’t use half of them anymore. I think [name]Maeve[/name], [name]Geneva[/name], [name]Victoria[/name], [name]Ava[/name]/[name]Aviana[/name], [name]Aveline[/name], etc. are great options, too. Or even [name]Caoimhe[/name]? It doesn’t have the “V” in it, but it has a strong “V” sound.
[name]Levi[/name] is my little bro’s middle name.
I just discovered [name]Vienne[/name], like, two minutes ago (well, from the movie Chocolat) and I love that!! I love [name]Caoimhe[/name]!! But it is very close to [name]Ciara[/name] ([name]Keira[/name]) which is on my list, sort of like the whole [name]Rory[/name]-[name]Brody[/name] thing.
What is it you love about [name]Olive[/name]? [name]How[/name] does the name feel to you? To me, at first it feels cute and humble, and it has a real sense of humor about itself. But then when you consider the briny oily deliciousness of olives, and the beauty of olive trees, the name feels more serious and evocative. If you can identify what quality you like in [name]Olive[/name], it will be easier to help you. Is it the “[name]Liv[/name]” sound? Are you a Popeye fan? No teasing intended - who doesn’t love [name]Olive[/name] Oyl?
[name]Lilac[/name] is another plant in the olive/jasmine family. And [name]Lilac[/name] seems closer to your name, because it’s incredibly fragrant like jasmine. [name]Lilac[/name] seems fresh to me, yet also very feminine. Then there’s [name]Olea[/name], which lacks the V, but means olive and has a nice gentleness to it. [name]Oliver[/name] is super cute for a boy.
