Re: Similar to Ava?
Ah, don't tell your mom you want to name the baby Mulva! It reminds me of the name of a certain female body part. If you want something awful, call her Brunhilda!
Anyway, Ava, huh? That DOES sound like a name your husband would quite enjoy! I was going to suggest Avery - it is unisex like Leighton. But, then you run into the whole issue of reusing a letter! Is this okay?
I can never remember what I have and haven't suggested to you before, so I'm just going to throw some names out there. I'm going to avoid A names until you give me the go-ahead.
Here are some Latin names like Ava, short and sweet:
Caia - "to rejoice" (Like Ky-uh)
Celeste - "heavenly"
Clara - "illustrious" (I say this Clare-uh, but some say Cl-are-uh)
Emma - "universal" (Popular and classic, but you have a Jacob!)
Maia - "great"
Rosa - "rose" (Less like Ava, more like Roslyn)
My favorites from this set with Jacob and Alanna are Caia, Clara, and Emma.
Names that seem to have a feel like Ava:
Bella (Close to Ella, but still feels like a nickname)
Stella (But I know you don't like this one...)
My favorite from this set with Jacob and Alanna is Stella, but that is already out.
Names that are short like Ava:
Jade (Whoops, a J!)
My favorites from this set with Jacob and Alanna are Blair, Claire, Reese, and Ruby.
Names that are trendy, like Ava:
My favorites are Jacob, Alanna, and Chloe, Lily, and Lucy.
Names that are sweet and feminine, like Ava:
Audrey (That darn A again...)
My favorite from this set with Jacob and Alanna is Cara. I love it, and I think it has the classic simplicity of Jacob and the femininity and style of Alanna.
Okay, I think that is sufficiently overwhelming you with names, so I'll talk to you later, Raquel! :-)"Names, once they are in common use, quickly become mere sounds, their etymology being buried, like so many of the earth's marvels, beneath the dust of habit." - Salman Rushdie
