Vivienne vs Vivian

I’m trying to convince my hubby to love [name_f]Vivienne[/name_f]/[name_u]Vivian[/name_u] as. a middle for [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f], but in the meantime, which spelling do you prefer? And are they pronounced differently? (Like [name_f]Violet[/name_f] and [name_f]Violette[/name_f])
I prefer the look of [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f] [name_f]Vivienne[/name_f] over [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f] [name_u]Vivian[/name_u], but I want to make sure I’m saying it right.
[name_f]Do[/name_f] you like this combo? Or do you prefer one of the other [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f] combos from my sig?

I say [name_f]Vivienne[/name_f] like [name_f]Vi[/name_f]-vi-ENNE and [name_u]Vivian[/name_u] like [name_f]Vi[/name_f]-vi-en. [name_f]Vivienne[/name_f] has a ton of emphasis on the last syllable. I prefer [name_u]Vivian[/name_u] because it’s less frilly, is easier to pronounce and ends whereas [name_f]Vivienne[/name_f] seems to linger at the end when you say it.

I do like how [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f] [name_f]Vivienne[/name_f] looks, and since it’s in the middle, pronunciation doesn’t matter as much, but I much prefer to say [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f] [name_u]Vivian[/name_u]. But [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f] [name_f]Vivienne[/name_f] does sound a bit better. (P.S. [name_u]Love[/name_u] the name [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f]!) And I do prefer [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f] [name_f]Fiona[/name_f] or [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f] [name_f]Beatrix[/name_f] to [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f] [name_f]Vivienne[/name_f], but I don’t think [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f] [name_f]Willa[/name_f] is as strong, but it is really fun!
In order of preference: [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f] [name_f]Beatrix[/name_f], [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f] [name_f]Fiona[/name_f], [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f] [name_f]Vivienne[/name_f], [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f] [name_f]Willa[/name_f] (just a bit L heavy - but beautiful regardless!).
I put [name_f]Beatrix[/name_f] first because I love the kick and strength she adds to the name. [name_f]Fiona[/name_f] is pretty too, but not as fiesty as [name_f]Beatrix[/name_f] and next to gentle [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f], I think you need something a bit strong.

[name_f]Vivienne[/name_f] is pronounced slightly different, but really, the difference is nothing more than a more nasal sound at the end over [name_u]Vivian[/name_u], and it’s certainly not as drastic as [name_f]Violet[/name_f] vs [name_f]Violette[/name_f], so I’d say you’re fine with pronunciation. [name_f]Vivienne[/name_f] is lovely, and I love [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f] [name_f]Vivienne[/name_f]!

I say them pretty much the same, although I emphasise slightly more on the -ENNE of [name_f]Vivienne[/name_f] than the -AN on [name_u]Vivian[/name_u]. I much prefer [name_f]Vivienne[/name_f], and [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f] [name_f]Vivienne[/name_f] is lovely.

[name_f]Rosalie[/name_f] [name_f]Vivienne[/name_f]

I prefer the [name_f]Vivienne[/name_f] spelling, just prettier [name_f]IMO[/name_f],

I say them the name exact way. I actually went back and forth with [name_u]Vivian[/name_u] vs [name_f]Vivienne[/name_f] because I felt the later was a little too frilly, but there was something about [name_u]Vivian[/name_u] that just rubbed me the wrong way. Eventually, I fell hard for [name_f]Vivienne[/name_f] and it’s still one of the top choices for a daughter. I know some people pronounce them differently, but everyone I know pronounces [name_u]Vivian[/name_u] and [name_f]Vivienne[/name_f] the EXACT same way.

I prefer [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f] [name_f]Vivienne[/name_f].

I personally love [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f] [name_f]Vivienne[/name_f]. They are pronounced the same, just different spelling (at least in my books).

What a beautiful name btw. I love it! I also really like [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f] [name_f]Fiona[/name_f].

I’m glad to see the pronunciation won’t be that big of an issue…now if I can convice the husband to love [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f] [name_f]Vivienne[/name_f]. …he already nixed my favorite [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f] [name_f]Beatrix[/name_f]… he loves [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f] [name_f]Neve[/name_f] but I think she should have a longer mn.
