Avelyn Eithne (pronounced like Evelyn, only with a short "a", and Eth-nee) Our first daughter will be named this -- she's due in 1 week!-- because we wanted a name that was different but feminine and pretty, that went well for child or adult and could have nicknames-- Ava, Avi, etc. We put these two names together because Avelyn is a derivative of Ava, which means "bird-like," and Eithne is an old Irish name that means "small fire."  We wanted a name that could have Biblical connotations, and figured that since the Holy Spirit is represented in Scripture by both a dove and tongues of fire, that this name worked!
