WDYT of this name?

Avangeline? I love the name [name]Ava[/name] but I am looking into alternatives to avoid popularity. With Avangeline, [name]Ava[/name] could be the NN. [name]Will[/name] it always be misspelled as [name]Evangeline[/name]? Any opinions?

I’ve never heard of Avangeline which doesnt mean much but I think it looks like and might possibly be a creatively spelled version of [name]Evangeline[/name]. I think you would have issues with spelling, etc…

I’d stick to [name]Evangeline[/name], where you can still have the nickname [name]Eva[/name], pronounced (ay-vuh).

i think evangeline is beautiful, with an A it looks as thought its misspelled. plus evangeline has so many nicknames to choose from, if you didn’t want something so popular.

[name]Evangeline[/name] is lovely. Avangeline looks made up, sorry. If you would call the child [name]Ava[/name] anyway, then just name her [name]Ava[/name]. As the pp said, you could use the nickname [name]Eva[/name] with [name]Evangeline[/name].

not a fan…ava is pretty though

[name]How[/name] about [name]Aveline[/name], Avelina, or [name]Avalon[/name]?

Thanks everyone, the majority of my names are very long and if I would have an [name]Ava[/name] I wonder if she would feel left out because her name is so small. Two of my great grandmothers were [name]Eve[/name]/[name]Eva[/name] respectively so maybe [name]Evangeline[/name] with a nn [name]Eva[/name] (prn [name]Ava[/name]) would be the better choice, I am still not sure though. Thank you all for the other variations as well but they just don’t strike me the same way that [name]Ava[/name] and Avangeline/[name]Evangeline[/name] do.

I agree with this, sorry. A former friend of mine had seriously considered Avangeline nn [name]Ava[/name] and I hated it so much. :frowning: It just drips with trendiness to me and changing the “E” to an “A” just seems to take all the class out of the name to me. I think you could easily use [name]Evangeline[/name] and use the nn [name]Ava[/name]. It’s not like you’re saying [name]Evangeline[/name] any differently, right? Or just use [name]Ava[/name]. It might be popular but popularity isn’t the worst thing in the world. :slight_smile:

[name]Evangeline[/name] is a lovely name with a lovely spelling… Avangeline just looks bad and like someone didn’t know how to spell the name properly in my opinion.

I think you are over thinking things, I cant imagine someone feeling left out just because their name was shorter, imo a name is about substance no matter how short or long and as long as you give your kids nice respectable names I dont see a problem. If this is a big fear for you then why not go with [name]Evangeline[/name] or another [name]Ava[/name] name?

No I am not saying it any differently I just wanted [name]Ava[/name] to be the obvious NN over [name]Eva[/name] but it would not really be a bad thing. I just cannot decide! What does everyone prefer [name]Ava[/name] or [name]Evangeline[/name]?

I probably am LOL. I guess I feared that she would feel left out because her name is short and does not come with any real NNs but it would not really be awful. [name]Ava[/name] is very easy to wear and maybe she would be thankful for that :slight_smile:

Sounds odd. much prefer [name]Avalyn[/name].

[name]Don[/name]'t Worry about having to spell out the name!! I have to spell out my daughter ([name]Hollie[/name]-[name]Marie[/name])'s name all the time, she loves to be different! Infact, I would even say its better to avoid popularity with different spellings. Avangeline is a gorgeous name! Avangelina really cuts it and Im even considering calling my second child it! good luck !

I prefer [name]Evangeline[/name] to [name]Ava[/name].

Avangeline will always be misspelleed as [name]Evangeline[/name] [name]IMO[/name]. I think if you could get away with [name]Evangeline[/name] nn [name]Ava[/name].

Avangeline makes me think of the Avengers for some reason.

A girl in my school was named Avangelina- she very rarely had to spell her name: and she quite liked having her name spelt different! Go for it!
