Viveca

Hello and welcome. We have a lovely classic hat for you this Monday. The Viveca hat. It is very snazzy and at the same time elegant — with a little touch of “the wild”.

The name

Hattingdon creator Vivian chose the name Viveca (also spelled Viveka) for this simply because she likes the sound of it. Here is a bit about the name.

Appellation Mountain writes:

It’s a Vivi name, just like all of the forms of Vivian.
 
• Viveka hits the sweet spot, right between feminine and frilly.
• While the name is rare, it is real rather than invented.
• With roots in Swedish and Sanskrit, it’s undeniably a culture-spanning choice.


The name Viveca is a girl’s name of Scandinavian origin meaning “alive, life; place of refuge”, Nameberry.com tells us.

The renowned Swedish actress named Viveca Lindfors was a notable bearer of this name. Famous people named Viveca include Viveca Lindfors, a Finnish figure skater and Viveca Sten, a Swedish novelist. Viveca was also a character’s name in the movie ‘Barbie And The Three Musketeers’.
