Not for me but a friend who has this at the top of her list for a girl. I love it, just wondered what mumsnetters views were.

i think it's reeeeeeeally over used now.

shame as it's nice.

abouteve Sat 08-Aug-09 16:18:50

Oh really! I don't know any others locally but I am out of touch. Middle name will be Anne as it's a family name.

I love it, DD was going to be Ava but then I changed my mind 2 weeks before she arrived, she's 2.5.
Then Myleen Klass called hers Ava and I was a bit relieved I hadn't gone for itblush

I love it.

Love it and its getting very popular but so what, my first born was an Emily, not many about and then there seemed to be loads.

I have an Ava. I love it. I think it's classic, elegant, glamorous and simple. I had mine way before Mylene Smug.

A thumbs up for the name then, great. Thanks for replies.

Love it. Shame about the popularity since Myleene's baby though.

It is a lovely name but soooo many Avas everywhere I go. Such a shame. She will be just one of many.

dizzydixies Sat 08-Aug-09 21:21:31

I have only heard ava once when my cousin was named it and this is the 2nd time i have heard it. i dont think its that popular

Really lovely but not sure about Ava Anne to be honest - the two 'A's are a bit of a struggle for me. Any other family names you could consider?

ilovesprouts Tue 11-Aug-09 11:38:30

love it

Thunderduck Tue 11-Aug-09 11:51:24

It's nice but overused.

pointydog Tue 11-Aug-09 11:53:03

I like it, and if your friend likes it, who cares if it's "overused?" I also think Ava Anne is beautiful smile

Kids don't feel any less special or loved just because one (or more) of their friends has the same first name. In fact, they seem to enjoy having the same name as someone else. I certainly did - was chuffed to bits when I met another MummyDragon at the local tennis club when I was a teenager (there were no other MummyDragons at my school even though it's not an uncommon name).

My daughter has a widely-used name and absolutely loves meeting other girls with "her" name.

Fruitysunshine Tue 11-Aug-09 13:19:41

It is a beautiful name.

abouteve Tue 11-Aug-09 13:44:13

Thanks, it would have to be Anne in the middle.

I was one of many at school with my first name and come to think of it, didn't bother me at all.
