I would say ah-veev, like Tel [name_u]Aviv[/name_u] (different accents may pronounce Tel [name_u]Aviv[/name_u] differently, but for me it is ah-veev). I know a girl named [name_f]Aviva[/name_f] but have never met an [name_u]Aviv[/name_u]. It’s handsome!

I’d also say [name_m]Ah[/name_m]-veev. It reminds me of the city Tel [name_u]Aviv[/name_u], as PP has pointed out, and also the Israeli actor [name_u]Aviv[/name_u] Alush.

[name_m]Ah[/name_m]-veev like [name_f]Aviva[/name_f] without the -a

I’d pronounce it how I pronounce Tel [name_u]Aviv[/name_u], so uh-VEEV. Interesting name!

Yes, this is what I was thinking. I have also heard of [name_f]Aviva[/name_f], but never just [name_u]Aviv[/name_u]. I think it would be workable, though I myself would probably prefer [name_f]Aviva[/name_f].

[name_f]Edit[/name_f]: And then I saw that this is in the boy names sections! I was thinking [name_u]Aviv[/name_u] for a girl. Well, that changes things. :relaxed:
I think [name_u]Aviv[/name_u] would be a great, unique choice for a boy. Definitely.

like Tel [name_u]Aviv[/name_u] ; uh-VEEV . Beauteous, light, and airy name you have here!

ah-veev. I like it :slight_smile:

ah-VEEV

I like it too, but it’s the kind of name I’d feel inappropriate using if I didn’t have a cultural or family connection that made sense.

I’d say uh-VEEV. It reminds me of Tel [name_u]Aviv[/name_u] and [name_f]Aviva[/name_f] (an insurance company here in the UK).

[name_f]My[/name_f] SO has a cousin named [name_u]Aviv[/name_u]. It’s pronounced [name_m]Ah[/name_m]-VEEV.
