The name Ava

Courtney

My husband loves this name, I think I like it too? But I’ve never considered it before because of how popular it is. How many Ava’s do you know? Teachers, are you seeing a lot of students with this name? I’m a high school teacher and we only have two in our school, but I’m wondering if this is a different story for elementary?

I know many people will say, “if you like the name who cares if it’s popular”, and to be honest I’m not too sure if I care or not.. I just don’t want our daughter to always be “Ava R” or another “Amanda, Stephanie, Brittney (or Courtney for that matter) haha. Those are all lovely names and popular for a reason, but I don’t think it’s my thing if you know what I mean.
