Love Ava but it v v common round here. Am really struggling to name my daughter and am stuck between going with something so overused and just trying not to care about it or trying to come up with something in a similar vein but a bit less popular. Any suggestions? Am fast approaching deadline to register name so any help/ suggestions/reassurance gratefully accepted...

Watching with interest as I too LOVE the name Ava and have done for many years, always planned to name my future daughter that. But angry that it is now so common.
My situation is no where near as pressing as yours however as I'm not even pregnant yet!
Though I have come across the name Avalina (which some have said sounds a bit made up :-( ) which I like as an alternative and could still use Ava as a nickname.

I have an Ava. DS is Asher, which is unisex (girl's version is spelt Asha). Other similar names I like are Vita and Ivy. Other names I love that are not really like it all are Tess, Imogen, Joy and Miranda. Personally I would not go for a made up lengthening of Ava, and nn-ing as Ava; just call her Ava if you love it!

Ivy
June (I love this, I think it's due a revival)
Emmeline
Clara

I was the same, I always loved Ava and then it suddenly got really popular, so I went with Ada which is a family name.
