I adore the name Avery. It has my vote all the way.

Ava and Avery sound nice with it, but that’s all I have been hearing name wise lately. Not sure if you have or not. I went outside the box for my girls Serenity Faith, Analise Jenelle, and Bailey Rayne.

I have heard of a few people naming their daughters Avery in the last year so I’m not sure if it’s getting more common.  I really like it, though.  And I have a former co-worker who has a daughter named McKinley (since you’ve noted a few Mc names).  As our last name is a McName, it was sadly off the table.

I love that you are finally able to pick a name after all you have been though!!!!

I like Peyton Holler (maybe Peyton Elise) or Emmerson (I know none of those are on your list, but I just love names) I love Avery but to be honest find it difficult with your last name.

maybe Avyn?

Of your choices I like Avery best. Here are some of the names I wont be using but was considering if we had a girl:

 Audrey, Aurora, Mirabelle, Lark,, Veronica, Sherele, Varick, Mia, Alexandra (and you can call her Alex), Kit, Billie. 


Good lck with your girl name search. if i think of any others I will add them. Do you have a middle name picked for it to flow with?

I love Avery – but it’s on our ‘future baby list’ too! (Most of my girl names are A names.. like me.) 😛

I like McKenna. It’s different – and sounds pretty with Holler.

I’ve taught girls with almost every name I can think of – and plenty of them are “different” on purpose to the point that they’re Strip-tastic or just so bizarrely spelled that I feel sorry for the poor girls (“eigh” for every “a” sound – so I once taught a girl named Ceightlynn Teighlor McKenzie). Your best bet for a strong name that not everyone will have and that doesn’t hint of the pole is to go for a more old-fashioned name. I have never taught an Ava, and I love the name.

I love the name Ava. How about Laura?

I agree that Avery is going to be very popular for this generation of babies. Someone suggested Hailey Holler and I think that the alliteration of an “H” name makes the name flow very well. On your list I like McKenna.

I think you can do better than Avery! You have some very nice names but I think you an find that “outside the box” name without getting strippery or made up. Your last name is incredibly similar (one letter off) to a good friend who has a beautiful name, so I actually included hernames above 🙂

Our friends just named their little boy Nash, he is the cutest.

I like Avery but I think its about to get popular (we know a Devon Avery). I dislike all those Mac/Mc girl names. Peyton is really cute as well.

What about Gracen. That is my niece’s name. I think it is a sweet girl’s name, fairly unique, and has some similarities to Lauren. I also like Avery & Ava.
