First Name

I propose this article be given the first name Vivian, as in "Phineas and Ferb Get Busted" Mrs. Garcia-Shapiro drops Linda off and Linda says "Bye Vivian", the name has also been mentioned at the Mahjong Tourny in "Out to Launch" and the bridge game at the Garcia-Shapiro house in "The Fast and the Phineas".

Agreed. It is our policy to do so. —Excelsior, The Flash - (Talk to me, talk to me, talk to me bay-bay!) 20:02, 10 February 2009 (UTC)

IMHO, she is Hispanic AND Jewish: she intersperses both Spanish and Yiddish phrases in her speech and Shapiro is a Jewish last name. Please verify and adjust accordingly.—Unsigned message added by (talkcontribs) 08:00, 28 February 2009

It has always been assumed that Vivian is Hispanic (Garcia) and her husband is Jewish (Shapiro). When kids get hyphenated names, most times the mother's name comes first and the father's comes second in the sequence. I imagine that Viv would have picked up lots of Yiddish phrases from her husband and his family. She seems to be of a similar age to Linda and therefore would not be considered a "young" mom. She and her husband were probably married quite awhile before Isabella came along giving her plenty of time to pick up such things. —Topher 23:46, 28 February 2009 (UTC)
In that case, shouldn't her husband be listed as "Shapiro", not "Garcia-Shapiro"?  Unless he is of Mexican-Jewish extraction and she took his hyphenated name...but then, what's Viv's maiden name? I think we have yet to see Isabella's mother's parents, don't we?....   I am, what I is. -Ron Stoppable 11:03, September 30, 2013 (UTC)

Squad and Stick?

In Vivian's character profile box, it says under Professional Information, "Affiliations: Life at Squad and Stick". Shouldn't this be, "Life at the Squat and Stitch"? —Barbiene 02:25, September 20, 2009 (UTC)

That was a bad edit made by an anonymous person about 3 weeks ago that slipped by. I will change it back. — RRabbit42 02:36, September 20, 2009 (UTC)


I tried editing the info box so that it shows some other names Vivian is known by (ex. Viv, Mrs. Garcia-Shapiro, ect.) but I couldn't find a specific space for it. I could have sworn that I saw something like that on another page. Could anyone please show me how to do this? If so that would be great! Isabella Girl Wow, chatty! 23:10, August 11, 2011 (UTC)

I put it in as Other1. Hi, Phineas.Whatcha doooooooin'? 23:13, August 11, 2011 (UTC)
