GIRL NAME PROBLEMS!! Help!
I have posted on here before asking for opinions on Lydia vs. Ava and then did a post on Penelope vs. Ava.
I apologize for repeat-posting, but I now have a new, even more complicated dilemma. And everyone on this forum gives such great, well-thougtht out advice so I thought I would ask your opinions now......
Ava is the one name my husband and I both like (Ava Louise & call her "Ava Lou as a NN) but I am now really 2nd guessing it for 2 reasons: 1) its so popular 2) it is so short with our 5 letter/ 1 syllable last name.
So...I have been searching for another timeless, classy name similar to Ava and cannot find one I love. Lydia & Penelope are out b/c my husband hates Penelpe and my parents & sister hate Lydia. (Not everyone has to love the name, but I'd like for a few people in my life to like it.)
To complicate things, one of my best friends said the girl name she will use someday is Vivienne and I am falling in love with it. It fits the bill of being longer, old-fashined/classy, and goes great with our last name. I also love the NN Vivi.
I either need to 1) find a name to longer, less popular name replace Ava, 2) talk to my friend about using Vivienne or 3)be reassured that Ava is still a great name in spite of its popularity and short stature.
I like Evelyn but don't like the "lyn" at the end bc our last name has an "lyn" in it and it doesn't flow. I also don't care for a few other names that have been suggested: Avalon, Avalyn, Genevive
HELP! this is driving me crazy. I appreciate your feedback, suggestions, etc...
