- Personal experiences with the name Avalon: | Edit
My beautiful 18 year old is named Avalon! I chose it after a song by Roxy Music called "Avalon". My Avalon is peaceful, easygoing , caring and loving. She is an introspective young woman who thinks carefully before making a decision. She is currently a missionary about to embark on a trip to India for 2 months! Her little sisters are Peycien (5) and Faith Star (4). She will be a big sister again in May 2010!
