Vivian is decidedly venetyo, of Vicenza and Venetian, with strains also between Trevisano and Pordenonese, Viviana is almost unique, Viviani is typical of eastern Lombardy and Veronese, has a core also in the band that goes from La Spezia to Florence, Viviano has a strain in Salerno and one in central-western Sicily, in the Palermo in particular, derive from the late Latin cognomen, of Gallic derivation Vivianus, Viviana of which we have an example in a Commutationis card of the year 1170 with Brebbia (VA): "... Unde Two cards one tenor scripte sunt, et ibi bystander and Confirmante lanfrancus de cillin et vivianus spiringoni de Ipso loco, here Estimaverunt et dixerunt quod HEC comutatio Legibus fieri posit... ". Traces of these cognitive-cognizations we find for example in a trial for witchcraft of 1631 in the commune of Bormio where the officiating notary is precisely UNM Viviani: "... Ego Franciscus Vivianus, filius quondam ser Petri, Communis Burmii, Publicus imperials auctoritate Burmii et notarius, Presentem supplicationem Tutele, a "a" a......... Subscripsi premissorum. ".
