    While I don’t see anything wrong with any of those names, if you’re looking for unique all of those first names except the last one are probably some of the most common names at the moment. I can name about three of each of those first three names just from people I personally know.

    Avalyn is the only unique on the list. I like them all – who cares if they’re popular if you like them.

    Beautiful names, but not at all unique! 

    I prefer Aiden and Ava

    If you want unique I wouldnt recommend Aiden or Jaxon. I feel like those are very hip names and are quite popular right now. But if you like them thats all that matters.

    Ava Rose was the only name I liked personally.

    Maybe I’m just not as picky as you, but there are a bunch of names that would sound fine with Avalyn (Avalyn Leigh; Avalyn Grace; Avalyn Kate; Avalyn Marie; Avalyn Nicole; Avalyn Mia; Avalyn Claire; Avalyn Paige…) I do think that a one syllable middle name goes better with a three-syllable first name, but two syllables work fine as well. 

    How “unique” do you want? Ava and Avalyn are beautiful names; they are also quite popular at the moment. Of course, the other half of it is that you can’t really “game the system”–ie, even if you choose a name that is in itself not in the top 1000, it’s likely that it’ll sound like a 2015-vintage name, or it will share properties with popular name “families”–so, Avalyn itself s barely in the to 1000 at somewhere around #990, but between all the similar-sounding names, like Ava (#4), Evelyn (#21), Ella (#15), Eva (#52), Avery (#13), plus the trend of the sound of -lyn (Gracelyn, Kaylyn, Emmalyn, Brooklyn, Madelyn…), “unique” is not really the descriptor I’d use, just FYI. 

    Don’t let that deter you though, if you really like those names–both Ava and Avalyn are lovely, lovely names–that’s why they ARE so popular! Nameberry is a great source for alternative “If you like Ava, you might like…” lists.

    I didn’t vote for Jaxon based on spelling. I feel like it’s one of the “cutesy” modified names that parents give their kids (and pets) with the nickname in mind (I.e. “We’ll name him Jaxon & call him Jax”) but I just can’t imagine a grown man wanting to be called “Jax” or liking that he constantly has to correct people who spell his name “Jackson” – that said, I think Jackson is a fine name.
