    Harper or Ava?

    All through my pregnancy my husband and I have been set on Ava for our daughters first name, but recently we started to take a liking to Harper. Now I'm torn! Our last name is Malcolm and the middle name will be Elizabeth. Which do you prefer:

    Ava Elizabeth Malcolm
    Harper Elizabeth Malcolm?

    Any feedback is much appreciated!

    Ava Elizabeth and Harper Elizabeth are both beautiful names. I really love Ava. Harper is a great name b/c it makes me think of the author of the novel To Kill a Mockingbird, Harper Lee.

    Both great name choices.

    I prefer Ava Elizabeth, which is beautiful! I keep seeing Harper and I really want to like it (especially because of Harper Lee), but it always reminds me of "harpy" and "harping". Not a good association, imo, and I just can't get past it.

    Ava, it's much less trendy than Harper.

    Ava Elizabeth is beautiful. Harper isn't attractive to me at all.
    All the best,
    Mischa.
