When you’re expecting a baby, you know time goes fast.

Nine months is a long time, but it’s hardly enough to get everything done — like setting up the nursery, babyproofing, making doctor’s appointments, and more.

But you don’t want to lose sight of one of the most important parts of preparing for baby’s arrival — coming up with her name.

People assume a lot about other people simply based on name alone. Plus, your daughter’s name will play a huge role in what she feels and thinks about herself. 

When you look at it this way, it becomes pretty apparent that finding the perfect first name is paramount for your baby.

But, if you devote all your time to finding a great first name, the middle name can play second fiddle.

That’s why I’ve been putting together my How To Pick A Middle Name series. So with a quick glance, you can find the perfect middle name for your daughter!

Without any further ado, here are the best middle names for a girl named Vivian.

I’ve compiled these from baby name databases, parent discussion forums, and other sources then whittled them down to the ones I personally think sound the best.

Hope it helps!
