The name of the day: Ava

Etymology of given name Ava
The first name Ava comes from Hebrew and means "give life". This first name is carried by about 2,000 people in France. Ava remains little attributed but with the 2013 trend of first names short it should prevail and gain popularity. We honor the Ava on April 29th.

History
According to specialists the first name Ava would be a very old derivative of Eva. In the 9th century, Saint Ava was a blind young woman who was healed during a pilgrimage that took place in the town of Denain, a French commune in the suburbs of Valenciennes. To thank for this miracle, she spent the rest of her life in a convent. Subsequently, the first name Ava began to spread timidly without experiencing a real success in France. On the other hand, the English-speaking countries quickly adopted this first name which was illustrated by the American actress Ava Gardner (1922-1990).
