ORIGIN: Hebrew
POPULARITY: 11
Ava possesses the vintage Hollywood glam of screen siren Ava Gardner, plus the sleek appeal and allure of compact, modern-sounding names that speed along the popularity lists (like Mia). Ava is one of those elemental names at home in many countries, like Iran (it means “voice” in Persian). In Hebrew it’s seen as related to Chava, which means “life” or “serpent,” or could be descended from the Latin Avis, meaning “bird.” High-profile parents who’ve picked Ava include Reese Witherspoon, Hugh Jackman, Eli Manning, Mia Hamm and Jeremy Renner.
