    Yes I'd pronounce Avonlea exactly the same as Avenley. A as in arrow, vonlea as in heavenly.

    Spelling it Avonlea saves the name, but if I met a kid with this name whose parent hadn't read the books I would be disgusted. If you're not an Ann(e) fan, stick to Avenly.

    Matilda Sailor or Faye Matilda | Sylvie Winifred or Simon Atlas | Atlas Dov or Alice Violetta | Lucien Wilde or Lucinda Jane | Jane Lucinda or Jack Mariner | Marlowe Charles or Roscoe Thomas | Charles ' Charlie' Wallace or Marigold 'Maggie' Wynn | Eloise Lily or Elliot Darwin | Iris Cordelia or Thea Marina | Jasper Augustus or Juniper 'June' Lovelace | Julian Felix or Judah 'Jude' Reeve

    I don't know about disgusted, but bothered for sure.
    I can't get on board with this name otherwise. Beyond trendy.
