    Thanks for the input! I think Av-i-uh sounds fine, I just like Ay-vi-uh a lot more.

    Nope, by Ay-vi-uh I mean it with a "vee" sound like you think. I guess I should have been more clear aha.

    I guess we all have different associations! Apparently it's also a shoe company, but that doesn't bother me.

    Thanks for the input. I really do like how it's just that little bit different from Ava.

    I just can't think of anything except 'aviary' when I see it. I also think it looks as if someone really wanted to use 'Ava' but was worried it was too common.

    Overall, not a fan.

    SO weird to see this! Avia is a name that caught my attention and kind of made me go looking for names and put me on my road t name-nerdom and this was almost a decade ago!

    It's not my style anymore but I think it's a nice name. It's Hebrew, a variant spelling of Aviya, which is a unisex name - in the Bible, Abijah was used on both men and women, so it's got interesting, unisex roots.
