Ava Caroline is my all time favourite combo. I love Ava and can understand the popularity of it. It is a beautiful name. Caroline is my name and a true classic and it means joy so it has everything going for it. I like the nn's of Calla, Cara, Carys, Cas and even Carolina.
So, if you want a combo that encompasses all the elements you like Ava Caroline is it.
If you want to use Calla as a nn then just reverse the combo to Caroline Ava.
I think this is a name that will never lose its class. It ages well and has a huge variety of nicknames to choose from. The spelling you have is my favorite, but I'm biased, it's my moms name, and my sister and I have had a lifelong argument over who gets to pass it on to the next generation!
Here's some combos I like:
Ava Katharine Scarlett - ( could use Ava Kate as a nn to differentiate her from all the other little Ava's - I am deterred from using Ava b/c of it's popularity but should one really skip a name you love b/c it's popular to choose something unique that you may like less???)
Caroline Scarlett ( and use Calla as the nn)
Aveline Scarlett (Aveline combines the beloved sounds of Ava and Caroline?)
I think I am drawn to use Scarlett(or Violette even) as a middle name because I am not brave enough to use it as a first name.
Any opinions on these? Any other combos that would sound good? Thanks

I vote for Katharine. I think it's because and more original then Katherine. I can imagine a baby and an adult with that name.
From the Popular list:
I vote for Avery. I don't like Blake...I really like Ava but I prefer it more exoctic - Avery.
I vote for Scarlet...because I don't like the others at all !
If I must vote for only one, it would be Avery.
