  • Spell it normal. The weird spelling will cause all sorts of pronunciations

  • I named my son Camden and a lot of people suggested different spellings but it just isn't my thing. But I agree with PP with this name it seems to work. I think it makes it more feminine and I love the name if not associated with an olive. lol So getting rid of the O is a good thing in my eyes.

    I like it. Especially with Jade. At first I was like Olivia.. yuk.. (sorry I seriously hate the show, lol). But with an a, it sort of gives it a different sound. A-liv-ee-ah sounds a lot better than O-Liv-ee-ah.

  • I imagine it being pronounced "Alieve-iah" (like the headache medecine). I would not spell it like that.

  • Honestly, if you hadnt put Olivia in your post. I would have thought it was ALI (as in Muhammad Ali) VEE-HA. I have a friend who has a daughter named Olivia and she spelled it a little different but it is still looks and sounds like Olivia. She spelled it Olivea. She wanted a name with the word Live in it.

  • Sorry I think the different spelling would cause problems-- people would not know how to pronounce it and mangle the name, and when people here the name Olivia they will spell it as Olivia-- and your child will constantly be correcting people on how to spell her name.
