    I’m Liv to most everyone.

    My dad’s side of the family usually calls me Liv or Olivia (though my little cousins used to call me O, but I’m now Livia).

    My mom’s side of the family mostly calls me Liv, but Livi and Olive are snuck in there as well.

    My parents and close friends call me Livi and Livers, and only my moms calls me Livi Lou Who.

    My brother calls me Liv/Sissy.

    I wish people would call me Ivy, Via, Olli, or Libby sometimes.

  2. Olivia says:

    At school I get called Livy, and at home Olivia, and by my
    nana (grandma in hungarian.) I get called Livie.

  3. Olivia who wants to be called Ollie says:

    No one calls me anything, tho I would rly like them to. Unfortunately I’m just Olivia to them, but I would really like to be:

    Livi is actually my username in one thing, but only my friends from there call me livi :(

  4. Olivia says:

    At school I get called Livi by my friend/s and at home , I get called Olive , I don’t really mind , even if it was something rude (in a jokey way tho) .

  5. Olivia says:

    Hi Olivia’s! Y’all are awesome ( ;
    I have been called…
    -Baby O
    I don’t know why but for some reason I can’t stand being called Olive.

  6. Olivia says:

    So yeah my names Olivia(obviously) I mainly go by Liv to everyone. Livy to my mother and O by my Brother. And my nan calls me LivyLuski. But online I think I might like to go by Via, Liv or V(Vee). :)

    -if you could please follow my photography instagram account that would be greatly appreciated :) @livyrphotography

  7. Olivia says:

    People call me Livsey or sometimes Liviana. What do u think abt those names? Do u like em>

  8. Olivia says:

    I have the nickname via live livia Oliver ollie these are all names I have been called in the last year that I remember and I have been called more in other years via was a nickname given to me by a once close friend about 4 years ago and when my new friends are upset with me the call me it to make me feel bad for them

  9. olivia says:

    hey. my name is olivia obviously loll. anyways i was on here looking for some nicknames i could get on my grad hoodie but all the nicknames here i already knew abt lol.
    some nicknames i have are these:
    oblivious- which i haven’t seen anyone comment
    via- which is all my social media’s usernames lol
    olive/ olivegarden
    and ozimok but that’s my last name lol

  10. Olivia says:

    Nicknames I have been called:

    I wish People could come up with better nicknames lol maybe like:
    Idk anyways bye :)

  11. Olivia says:

    Honestly, my close family members call me Oli, though I actually hate it when anyone else calls me that. My most popular nickname is Bri, though that is because my middle name is Briar. Tho as for an Olivia nickname, I like V, because it is one of the more pronounced words. Lil is also fine, but I REALLY don’t like Liv, because it sounds too choppy for me. Via is a bit too elegant, I guess, but no one has really called me Olive, except for some of my ‘inner circle friends’ for a couple of times.

  12. Olivia F. says:

    Hello fellow Olivia’s!
    My family members have always used the nickname Livvie/Liv for me and my friends use the nickname Liv sometimes.
    BUT I am genderqueer and some of my friends also call my Theo :) and I plan on starting to go by Olivier because it’s a cross between Olivia and Oliver and I like that it’s unique.
    Y’all are wonderful people :)

  13. Olivia says:

    Sooo hey Olivia’s of the world! Here’s my very average lil take on the nicknames

    My family call me livvy – I like it for fam but would sound a bit patronising if my friends said it
    My friends call me liv – I rly like it, short, sweet, Easy
    When my brother was growing up and he couldn’t say Olivia he just said via, this then just evolved into V even when he could say my name cuz it stuck. He’s stopped now but it was actually a nice name

  14. olivia says:

    my family & close friends call me “oe” (pronounced “oh-ee”) bc when i was first born my brother couldn’t pronounce olivia. otherwise, i’m sometimes called ollie, oreo or olive but no one’s ever called me liv or livvie or any other “normal” nickname for olivia ?? idk man

  15. olivia says:

    i mainly get called:

  16. Olivia says:

    Most people call me Olivia, but some nicknames I’ve gotten are: Olive, Oliver, Olivi-er, Liv, O, Yaya(my sister couldn’t pronounce Olivia), and Libby. My close friends call me Libby as a joke.

  17. Olivia says:

    Hey Olivias!!! my name is Olivia (which you probably could assume) some people call me Olivia, but I mostly just go by Liv. I have gotten many nicknames: Liv, Livy, Livia, Liver, (my sister calls me liver makes me quiver) olive, etc. Before my brother could say Olivia, he called me “wiv-ea”. When I was younger my gmom tried to call me Via, but it never really stuck. I love reading all of these comments on what Olivia’s are being called. A lot of people are saying V (vee) which is one that surprises me a little. Idk if it’s just me but do people spell your name wrong all the time? I spell it Olivia but so often people write my name- Olivea or Oliva

    • olivia says:

      hii i’m also an olivia. i was recently looking for a nickname that’s unique because liv and livy are good but there could be better ones out there. i then saw the two nicknames nollie and vee and those r really cute if anyone wants a new nickname

    • Olivia says:

      No your not the only one people are always asking how I spell it also my brother(i only have an older brother) and he couldn’t pronounce olivia so he would say livia and somehow my family came up with the name vivi and that’s my most common nickname don’t like it tho like your guys nicknames fam won’t call me nothing but olivia or vivi drives me crazy

  18. Olivia says:

    Hi! I’m Olivia, people call me all sorts of things (Livy, liv, ollie, livy loo, loopy livy and more.) I am known to be called Liv/Livy and most people call me that, although I have always wanted to be called V (Vee). Should I ask people to start calling me that?

    • Olivia says:

      V is so cuteee!! i always go by Liv but i really want people to call me Via because i think it’s so pretty, but yes you should definitely get people to call you V i love that xo

  19. Olivia says:


    My names Olivia. My family mostly call me Livy (it has to be spelt like that I HATE when it’s spelt differently ahaha. No Livvy, Livi or Livvie), mum calls me Lulu and I think that’s a really common nickname for Olivia. My friends call me Liv most of the time. A new nickname I have developed over the past few years is Olive ?.

  20. Olivia says:

    Hi! I’m an olivia. My friends call me Liv, my family calls me Livia…except….
    Mum calls me Olivlia or Olivia Bolivia
    Dad calls me Ya-Ya based on a mispronunciation hy a sibling as a toddler that sort of stuck.
    So yeah! I’m Olivia, Liv, Livia, Olivlia, Olivia Bolivia or Ya-Ya.

  21. Olivia says:

    Hi! I’m Olivia, but everyone calls me Liv! I’ve been called that forever and I love it! (More than being called Olivia) but for some reason, I want to be called V (pronounced as vee) but i don’t know if that’s really a nickname for Olivia? Especially since everyone calls me Liv or Livi! Any help

    • Olivia says:

      ya like the name no one will call me nothing else but I think you should try it out and see how it works. olivia’s supporting each other ??

  22. Mjm says:

    We have an Olivia that we call Frankie. Frankie is a nickname based on a loved one that she reminds us of.

  23. olivia says:

    hai everyone! so basically my name is olivia (duh). my dad usually calls me ulster (i love/hate it) and sometimes my brother calls me ulster county (HAHAHA). my grandparents used to call me olli and i hated it but now i kinda think it’s cute. all my friends call me by my normal name but i’d love if they called me:
    vee/vi, via, livi/livy, liv, livs, livia or ivy.
    so if ur looking for nicknames for olivia here are some good ones!

    • Olivia says:

      I’m not called by any nicknames, sadly, but I agree that livi sounds really cute, it’s in my roblox username (livikittenx) but only my roblox friends call me that which is upsetting cuz I’ve always wanted to be called Via or Ollie or Livi, I remember when i was SUPER little in grade school I found a new group of friends so I wanted to start over and they ended up calling me Livi which was awesome, I switched schools tho and now I’m just Olivia :(

  24. Olivia C. says:

    Hello my name is Olivia. Peeps call me Liv Lucia or Livi but I prefer Via which my mom calls me.

  25. Olivia says:

    If you wanted a more masculine or gender neutral nickname, you could use Oli (or Ollie), Lio (like Leo, but using letters from Olivia), Vi or Vio, or even Elliot, but that’s a bit of a stretch, even if 2/3 of Elliot is made up with letters from Olivia.

  26. Olivia Macho says:

    My name is Olivia my friends call me olive, liv, livi, livi livs, oli, alivia (alive-ee-ay) and some other ones. The name olive really offends most people named Olivia but it rly doesn’t bother me. My last name is Macho (mock-oh) my softball friends call me nacho and by basketball friends. This is for all the olivias out there, if someone calls you olive just let it go and move on, my friend Connor calls me that all the time.

  27. Olivia says:

    Hi! My name is Olivia! lol! I like to go by Liv or Livi, but I think that it would be really cool to go by Vi or Via, excpet I don’t know how to tell people that who already call me Livi and Liv. Any advice?

  28. olivia says:

    my name is olivia but everyone calls me oli or ollie and when people call me olive i will chase them like literally its so annoying and upsetting. my bro wanted to call me via but it sounded bad so we stuck to oli :)

  29. olivia says:

    i used to go by livy or liv, but i like vi (pronounced ‘vee’) now. some other options for ppl with the name olivia are:


  30. Olivia says:

    Hello olivia’s!!! Okay so usually people call me liv, livie, livia,livie-liv, and lots of other stuff. I would kinda prefer my friends to call me via, oli (oh-lee), liv, livia, but rarely livie. But it reallllyyyyyy aggravates me when people call me olive. MY NAME IS
    O-L-I-V-I-A and always will be. Well, I hope all of you have an amazing day, bye Olivias!!!

  31. olivia says:

    my name is olivia and i need a @ for twitter and idk what to put big problem right

  32. Oliwia says:

    My name is Oliwia. Yes with a w. My family calls me Oliwka (Oh-Lee-V-Ka) and Oli (O-lee) my friends call me Oliwia. Some nicknames are Libby, Ollie (which I prefer), Livi, Ivi, Ivia, Via, O, if your name is Oliwia with a w, you can have people call you Oli-W-ia (Oh-li-w-ia.)

    • Oliwia says:

      same!! My mom’s Polish and when I was born my parents wanted to name me “Olivia”. But I’m the 00s kid and this name was so popular that my mom came up with an idea to name me Oliwia. This is how Olivia is written in Polish since there’s no V in polish alphabet. And I’m really grateful for my name rn because it’s not really common here in the US.

    • oliwia says:

      ahhh sameee!! my mama is polish i love but also hate having a W :))

  33. Vi says:

    My name is Olivia but I’ve gone by Livi for most of my life, except the past couple of years when I decided to differentiate myself from the other Olivia’s by going with simply Vi instead. I’ve heard so many variations at this point, including Olive, Ivy, Lia (think Lea), Via, Oli, Livvy, Livie, Livi, Aia, and probably a lot more.

  34. olivia says:

    My name’s Olivia, but it’s such a common name I grew to dislike it. I mean, I’m leaving high school this year, and all my life I’ve had to pay such close attention to whether someone’s talking to me or the other 3000000 Olivia’s. I used to get called Liv, but I prefer Via (Vee-ah / Vie-a) and perhaps Ivy? I sometimes go by Lyvia.

  35. olivia nicole baker says:

    my name is olivia and sometimes when i meet my elders they always say, libby libby libby on the label label label ???? but for me i liked to be called livi or liv but i like my name its just every where i go some people would have the same name as me or would call me libby libby libby on the label label label.

    • vj says:

      Hi, Olivia. When someone says that to you, maybe you could say “I pray for the day when people forget that commercial!”

  36. Olivia says:

    My names Olivia and theres this guy who only calls me Olive. I kinda dig it but i really hate the name on me in general. But now that i have it i want to make the best out of it. Any suggestions? I kinda like Ivy (I – Vee) or Via

  37. Melinda says:

    We call my daughter Libby or Lib. Started out with nickname Livi but most of us ended up calling her Libby.

  38. Olivia says:

    My name is Olivia
    I get called
    Ivy ( I -v – ee)
    My mum calls me
    Oliviola ( (O-livvy-o-la)
    And livvy loo loo???

  39. Olivia says:

    My name is Olivia I like the nickname ivi (i-v-e)

  40. Olivia says:

    My name is Olivia my parents (just) call me liv but I like the one Olivi oso pronounced (oh liv ee oh so) or o liv i a pronounced (oh liv i ay) o liv I a is my favourite though

  41. Olivia says:

    Via, my family calls me via

  42. Olivia says:

    My name is Olivia, and I’ve had people call me all sorts of things. But my family got stuck on Livl (pronounced Live-uhl) and sometimes LivlBivl (Live-uhl–biv-uhl). I think that they’re cute nicknames just because I’ve never heard anyone else use them. I’ve looked on a lot of different websites and they don’t list Livl, so I just thought I’d put it here.

  43. Hannah says:

    I think for the name Olivia (a character in my current book) ivia is a good, unused, creative nickname.
    The I in ivia would be pronounced like in Olivia, just minus the Ol
