Thanks everyone with the help in naming our bub. She arrives this morning at 10:18am weighing 2.4kg and we're both doing ok.

We have named her Ava and are still deciding between Ava Sydney Grace (Sydney being a family name) or just Ava Grace.

Gudrun - after seeing Ava she just didn't look like a Pippa so i didn't have to convince DH after all.  original.gif

Edited - to fix my gramma.... still groggy lol

She is a absolutely beautiful.  Congrats.

Either is fine so I am not much help.  I dont place a huge amount of importance on middle names, I can count the number of times on one hand that I have even said DD's!  As long as the flow is nice and the initials dont come up with an obscure word.  Probably just Ava Grace if I had to choose, I am a simple gal.

I know an Ava Grace, I think it's a pretty popular name.  I'd go with Ava Sydney Grace and have the family connection.  

Congratulations.

Oh Ava Grace is a lovely name and your DD is beautiful. You must be so chuffed. And not bad getting onto EB just a couple of hours after giving birth.

P.S. I am so so so so jealous as we have the same due date and you already have your beautiful bub. *Off to start doing the gutter walk*
