My first cousin in New Hampshire is "Aveen." The Irish spelling is tough on us Americans.

I also think it's a very pretty name, but I would definitely suggest the Anglicized spelling, "Eavan," particularly if you live outside the British Isles.

Woah! I don't mean to sound offensive to anyone, but this is a bit of an eyesore. It sounds like Eve Anne though, which is pretty. Not saying everything has to be anglicized to suit American tastes though.

I love this name! I love the meaning, the pronunciation, the fact that it's Irish and I would absolutely name my daughter this. Who cares if the wonderful spelling will break her teachers' necks?!

I love this name even though it is quite common in Ireland where I live! I plan on naming a daughter I have Aoibheann.

The name is quite a difficulty for anyone outside of Ireland. For one that uses the pronunciation (see comment above) "AY ven," go with Aven. It's short, sweet and won't have the problems that Aoibheann would.

Pronounced "Ayveen" at least in Dublin where I'm from. Have also heard it pronounced "Ay-uh-veen" (with a very short "uh") in other parts of Ireland.

I think this is such a beautiful name. I would probably would use it if it weren't for the hard spelling and pronunciation. A clearer spelling like Evann just doesn't have the same charm to it.

An absolutely beautiful name. One of my favorites. However, if you're naming your kid this, good luck getting people to spell it correctly!
