Ask how it's pronounced. just to call attention to the spelling.

I do not understand why that spelling is so common. It looks horrible. If you pronounce Olivia with an ah sound then whatever but Alyvia? Phonetically that looks like aly vee ah. Tell her that, that her craptastic trendy spelling doesnt make any damn sense. Ys cannot replace every vowel in a name and it will still sound "correct". Just tell her to stick to Alivia.
