Very popular in the Czech Republic still, but definitely original in the US. The Czechs love nicknames, so there are lots of cute options, including Pavlina (this can be a separate name itself too), Pavlinka, Paja (pronounced pie - yuh), and more! Paja works as a nickname for Pavel too. It's cute!
My father's name is Paul and I'd love to name my baby after him, but I do not like Paula or Pauline at all. My dad is half Czech and that's the origin of Pavla! My older daughter's name is equally uncommon Nicasia. (named after my Sicilian mother in law). So I really want to be consistent with the uncommon nature and the sentiment attached to it also. What do you think?
