I love this name but it seems to be the number one girls name right now, it is too trendy?

I personally don't consider Olivia trendy, just popular. I personally see a difference between "trendy" and "popular". I think Olivia is a very lovely name.

It was the 7th most popular name of 2006 given to baby girls.

I think I heard something about Sophia being the number one girl's name right now for 2007. I honestly haven't heard of any Olivia's. I hear Sophia all the time at stores and stuff, though.

I love Olivia, btw! It's glamorous and beautiful. I think if you really love it- you should just go for it.

I agree with Niamh. I think Olivia is really pretty, even though I know a few of them (only one little one, the other two Olivias were teenagers). I hear Sophia a lot more too.

If the popularity bothers you, there are similar names that haven't been used as much: Olive, Livia, Lydia.

It is very popular, but I like it. I like the Spanish pronunciation, too.

I love the name, but I do agree it is a bit popular now. I wouldn't say it is trendy though.

I don't think it's a trendy name at all .. I just think it's really popular.
It's still beautiful !

I use to love Olivia but recently ive gone right off it and not because of the popularity either. Something about the name doesnt sit right with me, and im not sure what. I think if you love the name then you should use it!

I prefer Livia to Olivia personally, Livia just sounds nicer to me...and the fact that it's not just taking the O from Olivia but that it's a legit name in it's own right makes me like it even more.

Do you guys not know the definition of trendy? Pretty much, popular = trendy. Elizabeth is trendy, even though it has been popular for a long amount of time, the popularity has fluctuated, just like every other name. Mary was trendy at one time, but the popularity did go own. Olivia is trendy. It hasn't even always been this popular.

That said, Olivia is gorgeous and it is one of my Top 5 favorite names. I would use it regardless of trendiness/popularity.

That's your opinion. I disagree with your definition of "trendy". I personally see a difference between "popular" and "trendy".

I don't love the name Olivia, but I don't hate it. I know several young girls with the name, it is pretty popular around my area.

Obviously I'm going to be a bit biased here but I love Olivia. I think its a gorgeous name that will stand the test of time. Whenever I tell anyone my daughter's name they always say how beautiful it is. Since she's started school there are two other Olivia's in her year along with 3 Sophie's and 3 Chloe's.

Here in the UK it was the number one name in 2006, but slipped to number 3 in 2007.

Olive is a female name taken from the olive tree. The olive branch is a symbol of peace.
Olive is the third most popular name for girls in the UK in 2007.

It is a popular, favourite, famous name.
