Vivid to honor David?

I would love to come up with a girl name to honor my husband’s grandpa [name]David[/name]. We both like/are intrigued by Vivid.
Does it sound feminine?
[name]Do[/name] you think family members of his will automatically see the connection to [name]David[/name]?

I just love nn [name]Viv[/name] & how bright it feels!

Is this a name you’d like even if it had nothing to do with honoring? Because otherwise, it doesn’t pass the straight face test. I don’t think honoring should be an excuse to stretch the limits of naming…That said, apart from any connection to [name]David[/name], Vivid is pretty interesting. (Shhhh! [name]Don[/name]'t tell a celeb!)

Seriously, as an introvert, I wouldn’t want to be called Vivid. Too much to live up to. On the other hand, it’s awesome. I’m finding myself swinging back and forth in a way that rarely happens with names.

I might prefer Vivida. I think it’s a bit more workable, less eyebrow-raising.

Interesting point that an introvert might hate the name! It would be pretty unfortunate if it ended up being ironic on her! I think the name would attract me with or without the connection…maybe this is more of a mn? Thanks for your input!

Well if you are doing the nickname [name]Viv[/name] it scream girls, since that nn is used for [name]Vivian[/name]. Also it’s a word and I can’t help but find it to be an awful choice for a name.

For a more obvious choice there is [name]Davis[/name], [name]Davidson[/name], and [name]Dave[/name].

[name]Davina[/name] i know a woman with this name and love it !!!

Honestly, it sounds like way too much of a word and nowhere near enough of a name to me. If you like the nn [name]Viv[/name], there are more organic choices that sound less contrived.

There are also other choices that “feminize” [name]David[/name] more effectively. I’m not a huge fan of [name]Davida[/name] or [name]Davina[/name], but the name itself means “beloved” and there are lots of choices that work with that theme.

I think it’s a stretch - and Vivid Is a questionable movie production company. (says husband)

That was my first thought. :frowning:

I think [name]Vida[/name], [name]Davina[/name], and [name]Davis[/name] (know a woman named this) are all lovely choices.

Omggg nevermind Vivid…wouldn’t want my daughter to share a name with a porn company! Sorry grandpa [name]David[/name]!

Also nothing [name]Divine[/name]-like could work cause the [name]John[/name] Waters connection.

Ha Ha…that’s what these sites are for - to figure out if your missing something, or the name sounds odd.

I agree that Vivid is too much a word to fit well as a name, [name]IMO[/name]. Throwing in a suggestion…what about the name [name]Devorah[/name] (prn. [name]Dev[/name]-OR -ah)? It is a Hebrew name (like [name]David[/name]) with a similiar sound.

I think Devorrah is ok. I also like [name]Devon[/name]. Nickname [name]Devi[/name] us cute and less popular than [name]Vivi[/name] which I like! I think [name]Devi[/name] us a pretty close connection to [name]David[/name].

What about Avid?

If someone introduced me to their daughter Vivid and told me they used the word to honor Grandpa [name]David[/name] I would think it was bizarre. I’m sorry but I don’t see any connection between these to words besides the fact that they both share some of the same letters and are 5 letters long. I would need you to convince me that [name]David[/name] loved the word vivid, was a vivid person, something like that to keep a straight face.

I grew up with a [name]Davina[/name] whose father was [name]David[/name], what do you think of that?

My vote is for [name]Davina[/name] or [name]Vida[/name]. Are you planning to have more kids, and maybe a boy in the future? You could alays save the name [name]David[/name] for him. [name]David[/name] also means beloved. Could you name your daughter a variation of beloved?

[name]Cara[/name] - beloved in Greek ??

Sorry, don’t see a connection between [name]David[/name] and Vivid. The same ending doesn’t mean it’s the same name. I would try to stick very close to the name I want to honor. So [name]Davis[/name] might work.
