Fringe Poll: Alternate Olivia's Nickname?

Theirlivia and Ourlivia

When the subject of 'alternate universes' came up at the end of Season 1, the question of what should we call the people on the other side was risen. For Olivia, the name Alt-livia was used early on, but it seems that in the scripts she is officially referred to as Bolivia (i.e. B-Olivia vs. our A-Olivia). While popular with the writers, it doesn't appear to be much of a fan favorite, especially to 'shippers' who were already referring to the Peter B(ishop) and Olivia relationship with the same name.

However another nickname has become popular - Fauxlivia - as in fake Oliva. But who are we to say that the alternate Olivia is any less real than our Olivia (Theirlivia/Ourlivia?).

I personally prefer the nickname Altlivia, and use it here most of the time. Which nickname do you prefer?

I have ALWAYS called her Alt!Livia and will continue to do so no matter what the writers want to call her.

I think it's great that we all have our different preferences.

Having referred to the Peter Bishop & Olivia Dunham coupling as 'Bolivia' for over 2 years now, like hundreds of other writers and readers, over at the Fringe fandom of the FanFiction website, I can't relate to the Other Liv as 'Bolivia.'

She IS AltLivia, but for some reason(probably because I don't like her) I call her FauxLivia, as she is a false Olivia to me.

After making them up for this post, I'm kinda liking Theirlivia and Ourlivia...

Here's another set of nicknames that I'll just throw out there:

Peter's Olivia (Polivia) vs. Frank's Olivia (Folivia)

:)

I like Therilivia and Ourlivia also.

And guess what, Dennis? When it hit the press that executive producers were sticking with 'Bolivia' as the Other Olivia's nickname, most of us ff'ers changed our 'Bolivia'(P/O story ID) to 'Polivia' to avoid confusion.

And as for 'Folivia,' I'll bet you lunch that label will show up at the fanfiction site after episode 3.03 airs(if not before that).

Why not Alterlivia? :)

Dennis said...

Probably just to keep it two syllables, otherwise Alternate-Olivia would be fine too.

It's Olivialternate for me :p

It always has been and always will be Altlivia as far as im concerned.
Bolivia is a country and Faux-livia just doesnt sound right. When all is said and done it doesnt matter what they call her, we each have our fav names and we will all stick to them.
PS I may like the name Altlivia but in no way, shape or form do i like her! Olivia is the original and THE best!

I like to keep it simple...Alivia.

Kim said...

Dennis, I like the Polivia and Folivia :)

I've always shipped Peter & Olivia as Polivia, so I'm happy with that. I just don't like Bolivia, but FauxLivia isn't bad.

The new chick seems kinda slutty and the old chick seems like she is kinda wrapped too tight...

I vote - HO-livia and NO-livia.

I dont have a specific name for her, I actually call her all of those three suggestions divided, here and there. But lately I've come to separate the Oliva's by calling one 'Blondie' and the other 'The Redneck'

Personally, I like "Altivia", without the second "l". I think it flows more easily than "Altlivia". I don't like "Bolivia" because it just makes me think of the country, whereas "Fauxlivia" loses points for me because it makes her seems like less of her own person. She really is "Olivia Dunham", just not the one we first met, and, regardless of how you feel about her, you can't deny her unique characterization.

I agree with EMGettings - Altivia (no second "l") - not only does it flow better (IMO) than "Altlivia," but it fits nice with Walternate

Dennis said...

SciFi magazine referred to Altlivia as Olivia-B. Even that is better than Bolivia IMO...

TJ Newton called her Bolivia in the Electric Sheep show. That seems to settle the issue some.

Didn't Walter come up with FauxLivia? Well, since he is the same person who came up with Walternate and is all-around awesome - I'm sticking with Fauxlivia.

Me and my husband like to refer to Alt-livia as Oliviother. But in terms of this poll Alt-livia is the best, although Fauxlivia is good too.

Brain said...

E1/Blue = Olivia
E2/Red = Altlivia
E3/Orange/Amber = Amberlivia
E4/(green) = 4livia/Greenlivia

I like "Fauxlivia." It rolls off the tongue very naturally. I find "Altlivia" nearly unpronounceable, and "Altivia" sounds like a brand of yogurt. I heard "Bolivia" for the first time last week, and thought it was just someone's mispronunciation of "Fauxlivia." I see now that I was wrong; but I don't like it.

Fauxlivia is best
