A very classy name. A nice uncommon choice for a parent who likes Ava. This is my daughters Middle name only because it rhymed with my first name.
This is my daughter's name (only spelled Avalene for easier spelling/pronunciation)The original spelling of Aveline is derived from the name Evelyn, which is both my middle name and my grandmother's name. So it was a new updated way to keep Evelyn in my family. Everyone compliments me on her name.
