This name has the O factor. While Olivia has been near the top of baby-name lists, alongside Sophia, Emma and Isabella, the name also bears a clear distinction from them. O is rare as a first letter for given names, especially for girls. In Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night, Olivia is a sought-after heiress whose wealth makes her worthy of pursuit. On TV, Olivia is more of a trailblazer—fearless and groundbreaking in the form of Olivia Pope from Scandal and Olivia Benson from Law & Order: SVU. For less common variants of the name, look to Olive and Liv.
