VIVIENNE TICO SALCEDO





Viv

This is what acquaintances call me.

Some friends think ‘Viv’ is one letter too long.

My best friend called me this. It’s just ‘Viv’ now.



Vivi

It sounds like a dog’s name. My friends love using this one.



Vienna

Often followed by ‘sausage’ because my eldest sister thinks it’s funny.



Ating

Everyone called me this as a child. It stopped when I grew up. My other sister didn’t notice.

My brother has a weird way of showing affection. He never called me ‘Ating.’

Online friends think it’s cute.
