About The Name Olivia

The name Olivia finds its roots in the word olive.

Before my husband and I had started trying for our son, Hudson Oliver, we had one, big non-negotiable.

To spend a summer travelling the Mediterranean.

One of my most treasured memories from the trip is a warm July night in Santorini, walking by all of the shops, bistros and cocktail bars, each with a beautiful olive tree greeting visitors at its entrance.

Because of that night, among many others on the trip, olive trees have been special to me ever since.

In the book of Genesis, God promises Noah that He will never again flood the earth. Once the rains stop, God sends a dove carrying an olive branch to signal the end of the storm, and it quickly becomes a steadfast symbol of a promise kept.

How To Choose A Middle Name for Olivia

The name Olivia has become super popular in recent years, holding fast in the #1 position as the most popular name for girls in the United States since 2019.

But, then again, it is also a traditional name, with it first being used by William Shakespeare in his play Twelfth Night, written in the early 1600s.

To play off of this old-timey feel, I love pairing the name Olivia with a more traditional middle name, like Olivia Eleanor, Olivia Esther or Olivia Amelia.

Studies in the field of marketing have shown that we love words and names with repeating sounds and letters. Names starting with an o, e, a and i all give a repetitive feel. Olivia Autumn, Olivia Isabella, Olivia Eloise.

I feel like I’ve done my best to give you a little bit of everything to choose from.
