The Top Baby Name is...
Please comment Some modern and
Ava, Gretl, Anna, Liesl, Hannah
Like any of these?
Ava btw, is Persian.. Not German. I know, it's my name lol😂
Laugh all you want. I happen to be German and have many older aunts named Ava. It comes from the Germanic name Avagisa.
Since when is Ava a Persian name? I have never heard of anyone Persian being called that. Ava is Latin meaning "Life" and then later on in the medieval times it came from Avagisa like the previous guest said or the common Aveline which also gave way to the English name Evelyn. As for German names I like Marta! GL :)
Clara/Klara, Cora/Kora, Ida, Ingrid, Liese, Oda, Romy, Tabea, Thea, Ursula, Zella & Zilla - GL!
Ava is both German & Persian. :-)
Omg! I'm so sorry it seemed like I was laughing at you! Truly. I know sometimes it seems like we try to be mean because it's behind the computer, but j really wasn't trying to. I'm sorry. And yes, Ava can also be translated into Latin, and German, and many other languages for that matter, but the original form was Persian. It is derived from the Persian eve manning beautiful.. And in Farsi, the language they speak in Iran, it means voice of an angel. And I was laughing at my self when I said that I would know cuz it's my name.. Again, I apologize., the fistyness was the middle eastern in me lol
And, my dad is German, my mom is Persian, so I have both roots in me😊
Moral of the story is- we are all one!!!
Yes, but Persia started it all.
Jk lol. My mom always says that we started everything lol😂
She is very headstrong aka DEFINITELY middle easterneastern
Ok forreal tho, please stop putting Ava on this list. It isn't really German! Any name could be translated in to any language, but Ava isn't German. I'm sorry.
Freyja and Liesl are also great ones!
Ava- all the baby name sites state Ava comes from Latin and Germanic origins. Stop being a troll.
Ava is one of the most beautiful names. I would choose that or Ada.
Originally a short form of Germanic names beginning with the element avi, of unknown meaning, possibly "desired". This was the name of a 9th-century Frankish saint. It was also borne by a 12th-century poet from Melk, Austria.
Also, means "voice, sound" in Persian.
I am not being a troll. I don't have time for people who are headstrong, and only open to their on ideas. Have you nothing better to do than sit here and argue with me? I have already stated that this name can be in many different origins. I'm here only to be of service. If you find that offensive, that's on you. I'm not trying to be offensive to anyone. I'm only stating facts. Again, any name can be translated into any language, but that does not change the origin. To the guest who said that Ava is a beautiful name, thank you! I've always liked it😊
I'm not at all trying to be a troll.. To you who is saying that I'm being a troll- how old are you? Do your homework!
Jadwiga is my MILs name. Ava Jadwiga! GL!
Wanda, Ava or Liesel!
Ava- you are arguing with everyone else. You literally told people to stop putting Ava on their lists. JSV's comment outlined that the name does come from Germanic origin along with some Persian ties. So you have no right to say its not German when everyone knows (including yourself because your a troll). You call yourself half German? I highly doubt that
I'm literally dying from laughter about this. Again. You are being ridiculous. I have acknowledged that Ava CAN BE GERMAN. So can any other name. The origins of Ava however, are Persian. The name is more well known nowadays as german. The origins are Persian, and Greek. Again I say, go do your homework. You shouldn't be up this late on a school night.
And I didn't tell them to stop, I asked if they please would, and I am saying this only so that they know what is, and is not German. And, btw, I am German. My dad is german, and my mom is Iranian aka Persian. This is not hate towards the person I'm talking to! I hope that I am not offending someone. That is not what I'm trying to do. I'm all for positivity.
Exactly. No comeback now huh

I hope, it helped!
Ava, some of us has lives and arent glued to a computer screen. You literally wrote that I dont have to rehash this for you. It is a German name so all you need to do is look it up. You say your mother thinks everything has Persion origins just shows how ignorant your upbringing really was. I cant fix stupid. Kindly, ********
Ava is a name from Germany. I live in Austria I am percent Austrian and yes yes it is a name of Germany.
Omg. Okay.. Can we please agree to disagree?
I genuinely apologize if you felt like I was being rude.
But I really don't appreciate that you basically just called my mother stupid. I am not sure what your ******** meant, but you are probably right, and I probably should. I allowed myself to get to wrapped up in all this. I'm sorry. I don't want to hate on each other, as I think that the world is too wrapped up in this now. But, I will say that I am a very emotionally stable person, and the last comment that you posted, (and I'm going to sound like a child when I say this, but for lack of better words) really hurt you feelings. The fact that you don't even know me, or my parents and just called me AND them stupid?! That's ridiculous.
*really hurt MY feelings
Ava, you're right. We should agree to disagree. I apologize for the comment.
Wishing you peace, happiness and blessings to you and your mom.
You as well. And I apologize too. I appreciate that there are still people in this world who are mature enough to do so.😊 Thank you. Have a great day🙂
Have a great day too Ava!
