Cool Name of the Week: Aviva
Anyone else experiencing spring fever? Now that the mountains of snow in my neighborhood are (finally!) starting to melt, I'm ready to bring on the warmer weather, the tulips and daffodils, and the fresh air.
And Aviva's a name that perfectly encapsulates that spring fever feeling. It's a Hebrew name that means fresh and springlike. I'm loving it as a very fresh alternative to some of the uberpopular v-filled names like Ava, Eva, Evie and Vivienne. It's unlikely to be mispronounced (unless John Travolta's doing the pronouncing), and is different enough that it won't be confused with the related names. Plus, Aviva sounds a little more spunky than the short-and-sweet Avas and Evas.
What do you think of the name Aviva? Would you consider it for your daughter?
