We're trying to decide on our daughter's name but having a really hard time (the polls aren't much help...bad idea on my part) and hoping you can give us some guidance. We really like Lilah and Ava, currently, for her first name but not sure which is best! Her middle names are completely set, so please do not change them.

 

Lilah Jacqueline Jane

Ava Jacqueline Jane

 

Which do you like best overall, think flows best, and goes best with Carter Francis Paul and Miles Robert Jeffrey? We are open to other first names if you think there would be a name that would fit better! Thanks!

I like both Ava and Lilah. 

I think the only thing swaying me towards choosing Ava is how it sounds with Miles and Carter.

Miles and Lilah both have a prominent 'L' sound, whereas Ava does not. (Which is a pretty silly reason!)

 

Both are beautiful, age well, easy to pronounce and have an easy spelling that would be hard to get wrong.

 

Miles, Carter and Ava sounds wonderful together and makes a lovely sibset. 

So Ava gets my vote.

 

May I ask if your prn. Ava as Ay-vuh or Ah-vah?

I like the flow of Ava with Carter and Miles. Ava is quite beautiful and simple.

Thank you! I see what you mean about Miles and Lilah, I also just realized the beginnings of them rhyme.

We pronounce Ava ay-vuh

Ava gets my vote 100%. 

And you're right about both having similar sounding first syllables!

I think Ava goes better with your other children's names.

I like Lilah, It's a little less common (for me) and pretty. Though, I love Ava, too. Lilah has a better flow imo.
