A spunky middle name for Ava?
Picking a girl's name has been so much more difficult than my husband and I first anticipated. I feel like choosing a name for your child is one of the most important decisions you will make!
Ava is by far the name that we love the most at the moment. I like that it's short, feminine, sweet and can't possibly be misspelled. We have a surname that is very hard to spell, so we wanted to keep her first name as simple as possible.
I think we've resigned ourselves to the fact that Ava will possibly be a common name amongst other girls her age, but I guess it's popular for a reason?! There definitely aren't any Ava's amongst our family, friends, work colleagues or acquaintances, so that reassures me.
We also love the "old-lady" feel that Ava has, without being too crazy and out there. We have already picked a boy's name for possible future use, Oscar. We both LOVE this name, and I think Ava works well with the "old-man" style that Oscar brings. If we had a second girl, I think Elsie would be our choice and would also suit Ava nicely.
However, in the spirit of trying to be a little bit different, I guess my next question is what middle name would be a quirky option, that would give her name more of a twist??? Our first thought was to go with Ava Grace. Beautiful, but I know how common this combination is.
So, to all you helpful people out there, any suggestions for a middle name? In keeping with my current tastes and in a bid to give her name consistency, I'd love it to be a bit "old lady chic". I don't mind if it has one, two or three syllables - all will work with our surname. Thanks a bunch

With Ava I like the idea of something unexpected in the middle. My first thought was Ava Clementine, but I see Jem already suggested it so I second Ava Clementine! Other ideas
Ava Scarlett~ Elisabeth Odelia "Elsie" ~ Gideon Boone ~
~ Adelheid Ruby "Addie Rue" ~ Theodore Solomon "Teddy"~~ Casilda Josephine "Cassie Jo" ~ Zaccheaus Westley "Zeke" ~
