    My moms name was spelled Merri, which makes the task even more difficult!

    My husband loves Merri Avalon, but I would just feel strange using my moms name so directly. Amerie is adorable! I know Avalon Valentine is a lot of 'v', and possibly too cutesy for what I originally thought I liked in a name.

    Avalon Valentine does not flow perfectly, but both are nice names and I like that you are using a first name you love and honoring with the middle name!

    Some other ideas:
    Merris might be a great way to honor your mother!
    Also, if you are looking for other ways to honor her, have you thought about using her favorite flower, color, or a word name that represents something she loved?

    Might you and your husband like Waverly, Oakley, Ainsley, or Avonlea?
    Not expecting, just planning and building lists!

    Although Avalon Valentine won't win any awards for flow, it has a certain cadence that sounds girly girl and tomboy. You could always pronounce Valentine as Valen-teen for a less cutesy name. I think Amerie is gorgeous, as well. Avalon Amerie has an alliterative but grown up sound and great flow.

    I really like Merri Avalon, but if you feel odd about using the name directly, Amerie Valentine or Maribel (Meribel?) Avalon would be beautiful names.
