I love the name Octavia. My husband likes the nickname Tavia. I think Shakespeare when I hear it, I know not everyone does. My mom thinks its too much. I try not to ask opinions of my family because they all have thier own names picked out and like NOTHING else and have made it clear that they wont. So, what do you guys think?

I am peace, full of unconditional love. I am confident and in tune with the Divine, receptive to guidance.

I don't know. It's not something I would personally use but at the same time I don't dislike it. It seems alittle over the top to me, but thats just personal taste, if that is your taste then go for it. I think Tavia is cute too, as long as you and your DH like it I don't think others opinions should matter that much.

I personally love the name Octavia as well, but I do go back and forth on whether I would actually use it or not. I think if you guys really like it and agree on it then you should use it. Tavia is a cute nn!

It's cute. It's a great alternative to all the other very popular fancy names.
