    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.

    Is it the same as Avonlea?

    Edit: I just saw your reply. It's pronounced like this: http://www.forvo.com/word/avonlea/#en

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

    I really like Avonlea. Its airy, soft and delicate.
