Just saw an inspiring story on tv of a little girl called Vienna...and sometimes a name just affects you... Just wondering what you all thought of the name Vienna and how it sounds with my first daughter's name, Isla.

There used to be a poster with a Vienna around here, not sure if she still comes on or not.

I think it's quite pretty as a name and lovely with Isla original.gif.

Have you been there? What'd you think of the town?

I don't like place names unless there is a strong connection.

Vivien and Valentina are 2 of my favourite names if you're looking for something similar.

I love the city but I'm not keen on it as a name.  What about Violet?

I don't like it either, for some reason the first thing I thought of  when I read it was Vienetta, the ice cream! Not sure why I did think of the city.

DDs best friend is Vienna. I didn't like it at first but it's grown on me now. I like it better than Sienna.

I know someone probably in her 50s called Vienetta.

I adore these two options. Not Vienna though.

I know a Vienna.
When I first met her I thought her name was funny, and thought of the song.
But she is lovely and I really like the name now.

Vienna is my favourite name ever. I could never get dh on board though. Use it for me!  biggrin.gif

YUM!!!

I love the name Vienna.  Totally underrated and underused IMO.

Might be DD's friend. Tounge1.gif

I'm pretty sure you live around the same area as us. (Could be wrong though, I'm not a stalker, I swear!)

I like Vivien better, less baggage.

Purely in terms of sound, my favourite European place names of the moment are Ravenna, Izarra, and Margaux, but I don't know that I would really use them.

Also Vienna Fingers are one of my mom's favourite kinds of cookie, but I don't know if that's a thing here.

I may just be ignorant - but having never heard of Vienna as a name, it seem stoo stuck as a city for me.

I have an on-and-off relationship with the name Venetia, which is similar.

#18 ~THE~MAGICIAN~

Posted 16 January 2013 - 07:41 PM

Not my cup of tea. It sounds like Sienna gone wrong.

I wouldn't put it with Isla. I don't put sibsets ending in the same pronunciation if I can help it.

Its ok. I know a Verona which I prefer.

#20 Guest_Sunnycat_*

I quite like it. Love PPs suggestion of Valeska though. Stunning.

#21 lozzylots

Posted 16 January 2013 - 07:55 PM

Just saw the same story & DH & I both commented on how pretty a name it is. I think it sounds lovely with Isla too (not dissimilar sounding to my DD's name!)

#22 Chelli

My friend's DD is Vienna and it is such a gorgeous name. I would definitely use it.

#23 ~Peaches~

Posted 16 January 2013 - 08:00 PM

I quite like it, it's a nice change from Sienna.

I think Isla and Vienna sound lovely together original.gif

#24 vanessa71

Posted 16 January 2013 - 08:13 PM

Vienna, I just think of the Ultravox song.

It's not a name I would consider.

Definitely brought a few tears to my eyes...and the name has definitely stuck with me!
