150+ gorgeous middle names for Ava 

Need a beautiful middle name for a baby girl called Ava?

Whether you’re searching for a short or long middle name idea we’ve got you covered with over 150 ideas that work great with Ava as a first name. 

These traditional, playful, modern and unusual middle names are perfect choices to finish your baby name for a little girl. 

Baby girl called Ava

What does Ava mean?

Ava is a variation of the name Eve, meaning living or life, and comes from the Latin Avis, meaning bird. 

This feminine and pretty name was the third most popular baby name in the US last year and the fourth most popular baby name in the UK.  

It’s easy to see why this is such a hit with parents, as its stunning in its simplicity. It’s a great example of why parents love three-letter short baby names! 

It feels like a modern name, however it’s actually quite an old one with famous Avas including the actress Ava Gardner – who is a symbol of Hollywood’s Golden Era – and St Ava.  

What middle names go well with Ava?

Because it is short and sweet Ava works wonderfully with a range of short and long middle names. It particularly rolls well with names that begin with V, for example Ava Victoria, Ava Vivienne and Ava Valentina. 

This two syllable name also lends itself well to the popular one syllable middle names such as Ava Grace, Ava Hope and Ava Rose. 

I also think Ava goes great with some of the popular middle names starting with P, such as Ava Poppy, Ava Primrose and Ava Penelope.
