  • I think it's a great name and reminds me always of Ava Gardner. I don't know any Avas of any age.

  • It's very pretty ... but yes VERY common, ranked number 5 in the U.S. in 2008
    You could use a name that's less common like Avalee nickname Ava
    I like Ava Marie or if you like Avalee I like Avalee Preslie

  • Yes, it is really common. I hate common names, so I named my DD Eve. It is not common at all, but still has a similar ring to it. What about Ave instead? If common doesn't bother you, then just go for it. I know plenty of Sarah's, Amy's, Jennifer's.
