    Sorry, I'm confused How exactly do you want it pronounced phonetically? Like you would pronounce Ava? Then I would go with either Aven or Ayven I think Aiven would cause more incorrect pronunciations.

    It won't matter how you spell it people will still get it wrong. You'll just have to correct people I guess. My name is pronounced correctly most of the time but generally always spelt wrong- i just correct them, just like I always have.

    Spell it how you like it people will always get it wrong. My eldest daughter is Mia and people still call her myah (as in Myer) all the time. My middle is Tahlia and people call her taleah and my youngest is Alicia and people get that wrong. I don't think it matters you will always have someone get it wrong. It is a very pretty name so do what you like best.

    my point was, Ava is such a simple name that you don't really need to "simplify" it.

    Aiven for sure,
    Id pronounce Aven like Oven but with an A.
    but that said being such an unusual name chances are your DD will be spelling and pronouncing it her whole life anyway
