As for middle names: Ava Louise Ava Katherine Ava Grace Ava Heidi Ava Poppy Ava Nicole Ava Rebecca Ava Victoria Ava Jade Ava Sarah Ava May Ava Lily Ava Madison Ava Elizabeth (Reese Witherspoon's daughter I believe?) Ava Jessica
My partner likes the name Ava but looking at top 10 lists I also worried about it being too popular. Everyone we mention it to always says 'oh thats soooooo popular' but when asked if they actually know anyone with the name it turns out they dont! I would'nt worry too much about popularity It seems to vary by region anyway.
Exactly OP. All my DCs have pretty popular names (see Lily for example) but even then there really aren't that many. I don't regret their names and my Lily thinks it's cool there's another one in her school (still only 1 other).
