    Sveva

    What are your thoughts, please, on this mysterious little Italian name? Pronounced "SVEH-vah".

    I was not expecting it to be Italian! I think 'Sv' is a difficult vowel combination - or at least I struggle with it.
    I think it's fun though!

    It’s a bit awkward to say. Sounds incomplete.

    I think it's very cute and spunky, but feels a little incomplete and nick-namey.

    I’m not a huge fan. And I would hate to hear English speakers pronounce it Suh Veh Va.
