For girls names

I really like:

Coco ( have been told as in clown)
Ava ( far too common)

agree with korma,

missmem Tue 30-Jun-09 11:48:27

I like then both and although Ava is common it is lovely. Can you use coco as a nickname for a more formal?

belgo Tue 30-Jun-09 11:50:34

We thought about Coco for a girl. It is very pretty but it's hard to pull off.

Hazel is another more normal nutty namesmile

Coco is awful (sorry)
Ava I just find a bit meh- I don't like Eva much either, but I love Eve. hmm

I really like Coco. Courtney Cox and Jo Whiley both named their babies this and I know 3 where I live. I also know two Avas.

Coco is awful. And there will be a lot more around given the Coco Chanel film that's out at the moment.

Ava is fine.

Coco - Dreadful
Ava - not my taste but Ok.

I agree that Coco will be hard to carry off.

Ava is lovely but very popular. It is the name of Mylene Klass' daughter.

Ava is lovely but common - Mylene chose it so it's probably going to become even more popular.

Personally, think Coco is a bit shi shi (sp?); Monica from Friends actress chose it, but then again, so did Jo Wylie, so perhaps it has some credibility.

How about Beatrice and Martha - my two favourite girls' names??

Ava isnt that common, not as popular as the top ten, just cropping up a bit more often. I dont know any.

Coco is a definate NO.

Botbot Tue 30-Jun-09 12:53:40

Coco makes me think of Coco Hernandez in Fame. Not sure whether that's a good or a bad thing...

MaryBS Tue 30-Jun-09 12:55:02

Coco - not good. Clown comes to mind. Or "a mug of hot cocoa".

Ava, I'm surprised it's common, its not common round here, I don't know ANY kids called Ava!

NorbertDentressangle Tue 30-Jun-09 12:58:13

Coco is a bit too "celeb baby name"

Ava -I like it, I don't know very many but I can imagine it becoming popular

Kimi Tue 30-Jun-09 13:01:04

ava is nice

sweetnitanitro Tue 30-Jun-09 13:02:20

Coco immediately makes me think of the clown. It would also make a good name for a monkey.

Ava is lovely even though it is fairly popular. I don't think it's in the top ten though.

sockmonster Tue 30-Jun-09 14:05:20

Coco- hmm. Not a great baby name, fab stripper name though. I knew a grown-up who renamed herself Coco by deed poll. She had a chanel obsession. Came across as somewhat tacky and 'try-hard'

Ava- (you said 'honest' sorry!!) is too Myleene Klass.
The correct pronunciation of Eva in most of the world is Ava, and I like it better this way, in fact I love it pronounced Ava and spelt Eva. Reason mainly that Ava is too Avian flu and celebbed out.

Im not horrified by your names though they are nice grin

Fimbo Tue 30-Jun-09 14:14:08

My dd knows a Chloe who gets called Coco.

Mammina Tue 30-Jun-09 14:41:06

I really like Coco

Also like Ava but honestly I hear it EVERYWHERE (same as Eva, Evie, Eve)

Just trying to think what else could be shortened into Coco, if you prefer to do it that way..

Coral (is that a name?!)
Connie (although I'm sure that is short for something in itself)

Ava is lovely. Was our second-choice name for our DD smile

I do like Coco too, but can't stand Jo Whiley so the fact that her daughter is called Coco would be enough to put me off using it ...!
