Pronunciation Help

Hello all, I’m not expecting at the moment, just thinking into the future…

Hubby’s absolute favourite girl name is [name_u]Evelyn[/name_u] but it was never near my list before.

I’m looking for variations and I REALLY like [name_f]Aveline[/name_f].
[name_m]How[/name_m] would most people say it though?

Like [name_m]Ah[/name_m]-velyn or like [name_m]Ah[/name_m]-vel-line
No strong A’s in the way I like it pronounced…

Is there a better spelling for the sound I like other than Avelyn?

I can’t think of a better spelling that wouldn’t take it into made-up-land (like Ahvelyn, Ovelyn, Awvelyn- not good.) I good compromise between [name_u]Evelyn[/name_u] and [name_f]Aveline[/name_f] though could be [name_f]Evangeline[/name_f]?

Sorry I’m not of more help! Best of luck!

My first thought was ah-vah-leen. Then I thought ah-vah-line. I’d never think to say ah-vah-len.

I also say [name_m]AH[/name_m]-vuh-leen - Avelin could be an option, but I personally would stick with [name_f]Aveline[/name_f] and just correct people.

I would agree with previous posters In [name_m]AH[/name_m]-vuh-leen or maybe AY-vuh-leen. I can’t think of a good alternative spelling.

The way I pronounce it is [name_f]Ave[/name_f] (as in avenue)-uh-leen

[name_f]Aveline[/name_f] is a tricky one! [name_m]Even[/name_m] I’m not sure, its one of those that I kind of say differently depending on what pops in my head first.

At the moment I would probably say [name_m]Ah[/name_m]-veh-[name_f]LINE[/name_f]
