Husband and BFF completely shot down Isadora....came across these on a baby naming website, apparently British in origin...I've never heard them before but they are growing on me quite a bit...thoughts (and which do you like better)?

Re: Avelina/ Evelina

  • I think they're both derivatives of Avila. Evelina has a slight edge over Avelina in my book, but it's just due to personal preference as they both have a very pretty, feminine sound to them. You have several NN options with them as well. Lina/Lena, Eve/Eva/Evie, or Ava.

  • I like Evelina. :)

  • I prefer Avelina over Evelina, since Evelyn and Evangeline are trendy here.

  • @BumpasaurusRex She doesn't really have a say, but I do value her opinion, and so I asked her for it...if that makes sense...

  • Are they both too close to my other daughter's name? Eliana (currently goes by Ellie for the most part)

    It makes perfect sense, I get it.

  • Lol very true @BumpasaurusRex Although, I think that if my hubby and I both fall in love with something, I won't even ask her...it was just since he wasn't feeling it that I brought her into it...

    Personally I think they're too close to Eliana, especially if you spell it Evelina. Love Isadora though! I hope your husband changes his mind!

  • With Eliana,  it's a bit too matchy for me. (I preferred Avelina. Evelina is just too similar to Evelyn for me)
    noelani42
  • I'm a fan of Avelina. I think it both looks and sounds beautiful!
    noelani42
  • I was going to say I prefer Evelina, but then I saw you already have a daughter named Eliana and I think they'rd too similar. So Avelina by default, although if it was me I'd keep searching!

  • I like Avalina much better!
    noelani42
  • I would keep looking. I think something like Isadora that's much more different is a better compliment to the sibset

  • I think Eliana and Aveline work together (Evelina and Avelina are too matchy imo). Plus then you can have nn Ellie and Ava, which is cute.

  • Too similar to your other daughter imo

  • I just gave my daughter the middle name Avelina. I think it's beautiful although I do get a lot of questions over pronunciation so that might be something to consider.
