Ava is a bit over used right now, so on that note alone I would go with Everly.

Everly is a surname, so of the two it would have to be Ava for me.
But it is massively popular, so I would look for something different.

I really like both but I would go with Everly. Although I like the name in its entirety, wouldn't want it shortened to Eve/Evey

Everly. Ava's well and truly worn out now

Ava is very popular but still lovely. Everley will potentially get mis-heard as Beverley?
as a Kirsty who constantly gets "Cathy?" It may prove irritating grin

I don't like Ava at all... it's bound to be mixed up with similar-sounding names like Eva.

I think Ava is lovely.

Everly is old fashioned sounded IMO.

I always think of the way the name is shorted, Ava wouldn't really get shorted,
Everley would be "Ev" which is too close to "Bev" for me

Everly always makes me think of Beverly.

Everly is a surname.

I think with Everly it will be a lifetime of correcting people that's it's not Beverley when introduced as a PP said.

I really like Emberly as well

CabernetSauvignyoni Mon 22-May-17 19:34:58

Everly, I love it!

Sugarpiehoneyeye Mon 22-May-17 19:43:04

❤️ Everly.
Ava is also nice, but over used.

FeedTheSharkAndItWillBite Mon 22-May-17 19:49:07


Ava is too popular.

Ava. Sorry, but Everly sounds like the title of a fantasy novel...

Don't like Everly at all. She'll be known as Ev or Evvie.
Ava is much nicer imo, but overused right now.
Are there any other names you like?

Neither, sorry!
