Are you sick of this name?

We tend to like the names that are super popular for some reason and I don’t want my child to be one of 10 with the same name. My question is: Ava is #3 but feels classic to me. I only know two friends who have an Ava and one lives on the other side of the country. 

Is the name Ava tired/overdone?

  • To me, Ava feels like a very 2000's name.

  • I feel like I'm an outlier but I don't like this name because when I hear 'Ava', I think of Eva Braun. But it's really popular so must be just me...
  • This is one of those names that seems common, but I honestly don’t hear it that often. We chose a classic but popular name for my daughter and I still love it, no regrets. Choose what you love. 
  • It is one of those names that I know is super popular, but honestly I think I have only met one personally (and I teach). I wouldn't have a problem naming my daughter it.
