[name_m]How[/name_m] do you prn [name_f]Aveline[/name_f]? I automatically say Av uh leen. I wonder if Av uh lyn could be correct.

I think both could be correct (like [name_f]Madeline[/name_f] or [name_f]Emmeline[/name_f] having two commonly used pronunciations) but I instinctively say Ay-vuh-leen. Like [name_f]Ava[/name_f] + leen.

I think [name_f]Aveline[/name_f] is really pretty!

I’d say ah-vah-line (like washing line) but wouldn’t bat an eyelid at av-uh-leen. Ay-vuh-leen however just doesn’t sound right to my ears.

[name_u]Love[/name_u] the name btw. I haven’t really got on board with all the [name_f]Ada[/name_f] / [name_f]Adelaide[/name_f] / [name_f]Ava[/name_f] / [name_u]Avery[/name_u] / [name_f]Adelina[/name_f] clan, but [name_f]Aveline[/name_f] is an exception.

av-ə-line and av-ə-leen

I prefer the [name_f]LINE[/name_f] pronunciation. I prefer the [name_f]LINE[/name_f] pronunciation with all names that end in [name_f]LINE[/name_f].

[name_f]Aveline[/name_f], either pronunciation, is gorgeous.

I’m not expecting. [name_m]Just[/name_m] curious about this name. It looks so pretty.

I say it exactly like [name_f]Adeline[/name_f] with a v. I prefer the -leen ending on this one.


I say the -leen ending, [name_f]Aveline[/name_f] is super pretty!

A long time favourite name of mine. I say “AV-uh-leen”.

Initially, I would have said av-uh-line, but now I am thinking of - ay-va-line. It’s a nice name!

I say it like “AV-uh-leen”. Gorgeous name!

I pronounce it Ay-vuh-line

av-uh-leen would be my first instinct. I tend to do the -een sound with most names ending in -ine, except perhaps for something like [name_f]Caroline[/name_f] because it’s more familiar and I know people don’t usually say it that way. It’s just the [name_m]French[/name_m] training in me I think.

AV-uh-leen, first syllable like [name_f]Avalon[/name_f] or avalanche or avenue. I think the final syllable is flexible though - could also be an “eye” sound (or even “lyn” but personally I’d avoid that since it sounds so close to [name_u]Evelyn[/name_u]). Very pretty!
