    It’s beautiful!  But I think when you say the names together out loud, it can sound like “Ava Lise” – you know what I mean? The second “a” and the first “e” run together.

    Is your husband a Tom Clancy fan, by chance?? (Jack Ryan is the main character’s name – Darling Husband is a big fan)

    I would agree with wombat on Ava Elise -it’s very pretty but does run a little bit.

    @Bao:  Harrison Ford played him in the movies, so at least he has a handsome namesake!

    Darling Husband has always liked the name Jack too….it’s on our list for whenver we get around to having kids (specifically a boy!).

    I don’t know if I speak differently than everyone else, but I just tried saying it outloud and I don’t think it runs together too badly 🙂 

    It’s such a cute name, I’d stick with it and not worry.

    How many syllables is your last name?  And what letter does it start with?

    That will make it easier to tell if it all flows together.

    I think its pretty. And you’re not going to be calling her by her middle name as if it were hyphenated with the first..right?

    When the first name ends in a vowel and the second starts with a vowel, the end result is that the second name will have the first letter dropped in pronunciation.

    The reality is though that few of us are called by both names all the time.

    The girls name is fine, I don’t like Jack Ryan

    I would change it. Depending on how you say it, it either runs together or you get an awkward stop-and-go thing going on.
