    I agree with you all about Avangeline... the more i think about it, the less i like it... Evangeline is a great name, the last thing I want to do is ruin it.

    Aoife, although clearly not Ava, would be acceptable for the family... It was my grandmothers name before she changed after moving ti the US.

    I think we are most liking Aveline, or a varient if that...

    I really like the suggestion of Aviana too, and just thought of Avery as well.

    Aveline is definitely my favorite, and the fact that it's pronounced differently doesn't really bother me (if Kit can be a nn for Christopher, and Posy for Josephine than Ava could definitely be a nn for Aveline in my book....)

    If you are going to call her Ava, then she will still be one of 5 Ava's in the classroom. I personally would stick with Ava, if that is what she will be called.

    Thanks for your help! Please opinionize and suggest away!

    (I got rid of most of this post so you could see what I was talking about...)

    I am also Irish and my grandparents speak some Gaelic so I adore the names like Aoife, Aoibheann, Aibhilin, Caoimhe, etc..

    Not many Americans could accurately pronounce some of these names unless they have studied background in the Irish language or they just pick it up along the way, so I would stay away from some of the more complicated Irish names.
