    It's a nice name but why the "y"?
    Because no one could possibly know the centuries old Ava has an Ay sound not aaa. So one must be on trend and spell it phonetically 😉

    See with that spelling I'm pronouncing it 'Cra-yooz' in my head.
    Or maybe 'Cra-hyze'?

    I seriously just gasped out loud. That is so ridiculous, that poor child.

    Actually the more I look at that spelling, the more it looks like it says "crazy"!

    I thought maybe they'd been victims of an autocorrect and so I messaged back. No, they were very serious and somewhat annoyed they'd been asked to repeat it so many times.

    I think it's hilarious you asked if was an auto correct, that's gold! And what did they expect?? It's not just a slightly different spelling it's so off the wall no one could possibly know the spelling?

    Just took my son to tennis, there is a little girl named Pippet and a boy named Oryan (I hope there is no apostrophe in there!) in his class. I was so unimpressed when we realised how popular little man's name was/is but it sure is better than the alternative!

    Is that pronounced ori-an or more like o'ryan? If 'Ori-an', Ørjan (same pronunciation) is a traditional Scandinavian name. Might explain it?
