- Oddly, Vivian seems to embody both of her last names: She appears to be Hispanic, yet speaks with a Yiddish accent.
- She revealed that she is a decendant Mexican-Jewish culture ("Picture This").
- Based on the mixture of her appearance and speech patterns, she may have been raised in a Mexican-Jewish household. It is also possible that she adopted some mannerisms from Isabella's yet-unnamed father, whom many speculate to be of Jewish descent.
- In The Fast and the Phineas, Vivian reveals that Candace, at some point in her life, was wearing braces. She also thinks Candace is too thin, and encourages her to eat by offering her a mozza-burrito ("Picture This"). She may enjoy the burritos herself, which is a marriage of staple foods in both the Mexican and Jewish cultures.
- Vivian calls her daughter "Isa" ("Hide and Seek"), which is a common shortening of her name in Spanish-speaking countries.
