Origin of the name VIVIANA.
Etymology of the name VIVIANA.
Meaning of the baby name VIVIANA.

  

VIVIANA.  Arthurian.  An enchantress of King Arthur's court.  It is the feminine form of Latin Vivianus (q.v.), meaning "alive."  Also spelled Vivianna.

... Vivianus and Viviana were names of later Roman days, often, in the West, pronounced with a B, and we find a Christian maiden, named Bibiana, put to death by a Roman governor, under Julian the Apostate, under pretence of her having destroyed one of his eyes by magic, a common excuse for persecution in the days of pretended toleration.  A church was built over her remains as early as 465, and, considering the accusation against her, it is curious to find Vyvyan or Viviana the enchantress of King Arthur's court. (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884)
