What do you think of the name Avia for a girl? (AYE-V-A) when I say "aye" I mean like rhymes with hey, bay etc. I am thinking either:

Avia Belle
Avia Mai/May

Opinions? Or even alternatives?

Holliee Sat 22-Feb-14 23:55:55

OOO also Zoella?

ViviDeBeauvoir Sun 23-Feb-14 00:05:33

No for either from me, I'm afraid.

Avia makes me think of Aviva or Avis. You'd be better off going for Ava.

Zoella looks wrong. Like you took Zoe and Ella and bodged them together.

Holliee Sun 23-Feb-14 00:08:36

I loved Ava initially but its just so popular at the moment!

SlitheryAnne Sun 23-Feb-14 00:10:51

Not keen on Avia, what about Aphia instead?

Innogen Sun 23-Feb-14 00:11:25

Zoella is awful. You know the famous zoella actually called Zoe, and that is a dodgy nickname/username, don't you?

Only1scoop Sun 23-Feb-14 00:12:07

Makes me think of my trainers....

Only1scoop Sun 23-Feb-14 00:13:37

Is the Zoella bit a joke grin

Martorana Sun 23-Feb-14 00:15:22

My niece is Zulaika- known as Zuie. Any use? Please don't just add random letters to real names!

Holliee Sun 23-Feb-14 00:16:16

There is a famous Zoella ? hmm

chattychattyboomba Sun 23-Feb-14 00:17:20

Aye-vee-a? No. Nope. Sorry. Trying too hard. Ava is fine.

Ruprekt Sun 23-Feb-14 00:17:24

Both awful.......shockshockshock

Innogen Sun 23-Feb-14 00:18:55

Yeah google her. Big in the make up world, loved by a mass of teenage girls, regular interviewer pal of One Direction.

Oh my goodness shock !

I thought it was a rebranded rail franchise or insurance company!

Ava is lovely.

Zoella is not a real name, surely!

Holliee Sun 23-Feb-14 00:33:25

Ava is far too popular.... Blame Zoella on my Sister..... I just love Avia

How about Avalon

Holliee Sun 23-Feb-14 00:46:34

Thats like saying Sainsburys and Stephanie....

Leeds2 Sun 23-Feb-14 00:46:53

It sounds like an insurance product to me.

Holliee Sun 23-Feb-14 00:50:11

It is pronounced the polar opposite of Aviva though

Dovahkiin Sun 23-Feb-14 02:18:50

A friend recently had a Zinnia. It might be a nice compromise, and it's a lovely name in itself - a type of flower.

GinnelsandWhippets Sun 23-Feb-14 02:32:57

Yep, sorry my first thought was 'isn't that a car hire company'. And agree zoella just sounds like two names bunged together.
