    Okay, so i've known pretty much all along that I would be calling my baby girl Ava. Because it's such a short name I never thought there would be problems with how people pronounce it but it seems there is.

    So how would you pronounce Ava? Might give me an idea of how people think it's said.

    So did I (seems most here agree too). I was at a family party last weekend though and my Gran along with heaps of other people I don't seen often were saying 'Av-ah' or 'Ahh-Vah' so I was getting verrrryyy annoyed.
