I really like this name. It sounds prettier than the common 'Eva'. So, I think I would name my daughter this.

I always think of Ava Braun, Hitler's girlfriend (but the name doesn't have a negative connotation for me).

The name of Hitler's lover was not Ava, but Eva.

Actually, the German pronunciation of Ava is AH-vah, not AH-fah. [noted -ed]

I personally love this name! :) does anyone know any good ways it could be made longer or added on to? I love long names and I thought maybe I could alter this a bit. Any suggestions?

The name 'Aviva' is similar to Ava and is longer. :)

I think I saw it on a projected popularity list by the guys who wrote Freakonomics. They predicted it would become popular with well-educated parents in future decades.

Frau Ava, also known as Ava of Melk, Ava of Göttweig and the Poet Ava (1060 - 1127), was the first named female writer in any genre in the German language.

Derives from ancient Greek word: αβα which means : big voice, clamor.

My name is Ava and I am at least the third generation Ava in my family. There are two generations that are younger than I am,, making us a five generation Ava family. We are of Scandinavian origin. We do not have a family history past the five generations. My great aunt Ava was from Wilkerson, Texas and was born in the late 1800's. I am glad that we are not part of the current popularity rage of the name Ava.

I love the German and Iranian (AH-vah) pronunciation. This sounds beautiful and sweet. I HATE the English "AY-və" pronunciation.

Just want to add an update. Whilst I love the sound of this pronunciation, Ava pronounced the English way (AY-və) has actually grown on me! I love both now. =)
