what do you think of this girl name? C♥W 3 kids; Minnesota 219 posts

I'm pretty sure I've never heard of this name before but do correct me if I'm wrong! I have 2 boys and am expecting and hoping for a girl this time around and have come to really like the names Emmaline, Charlotte, Ava and Scarlett. However, dh has cousins named Emmy and Emma and I have cousins named Scarlett and Ava. Last name is Lee. So I decided to combine names (horror, I know) and came up with:



Avalyn Lee (kind of like Evelyn but with Ava)



I think it sounds rather pretty :)! Am I crazy? Does this name sound pretty for a little girl and an adult? Will it look good on a resume and will people misspronouce it? Give me your honest opinoins, LOL!! Should I just stick with Charlotte then? Thanks!

I dont like it. I hate when people take perfectly acceptable names and throw lyn on the end. Its trendy trash imho.

Are you pronouncing it AVA-lynn or EVA-lynn?



I like it either way, its different, and I like different names.



I don't think by adding "lynn" or "lyssa" is trashy or even catchy, its making a name unique.



Just don't go spelling it uniquely, because only YOU will understand it, and have to constantly correct people mispronouncing it.

I like it too but that name is taken already by my best friend's daughter and 2 other relatives' daughters. Bummer!

Evalyn is how my bff spells her middle name. She went by "Eva" at work. I like Evalyn not so much Avalyn.
