The whole time Vivi's name is actually just numbers. 66

Makes sense

Never occurred to me until just earlier today.

Vivi is a new prototype, so, If anything, he should be I, or prototype I, or new I.
It is not like the Black Waltz are only number named.

It is "funnier" if the name is plain I.

Canonically Quan must've been the one that called him Vivi, right?

Quan is the one who found Vivi. Btw is Bi is 6 in japanese? Since I remember his name is bibi there.

I always thought it had something to do with the spanish verb vivir - to live

Because you know his whole character arc is struggling with his existence, life and death
IX>XII>VIII>X>VII>IV>VI>I at the moment. Changes every week. Only includes mainlines that I've completed; not fair to judge until I finish.

I don't believe it's numbers either, as Roman numbers don't work like this. If he was 66 then it would be LXVI.

This is the real answer.

That said, it's also possible he plays a sport - like football - and his jersey number is 66. It would be reasonable to change his name to a version of his number, methinks. Maybe he doesn't understand roman numerals very well and could only figure out 'Vivi'. It would be like some guy renaming himself "Seis-seis"...or something. Hypothetically.
Pronounced "Whup-pot". Say it. Use it.

If you have any doubt, you can refer to his japanese name, which is bibi. In my language, that means "aunt" but surely I cannot force its meaning to speaker outside of my mother language.
