This age-old American name rose to the top of the charts at the turn of the 1900s and maintained a steady lead until recently. Vi is typically given as a standalone girl’s name, but began as a pet name or abbreviation. If you find yourself caught between names like Violet, Vienna, and Vivienne, then naming baby Vi could be the perfect catch-all. While its meaning is often linked to the name it's shortening, it is most commonly associated with Violet, and therefore has adopted the meaning “purple.” It’s no surprise why this is such a loved choice, as the color represents luxury, nobility, power, and ambition. Who wouldn’t want these underpinning baby’s character?
