What do you think of the name Iva (EYE va)? What do you think of Iva Jean?


I personally think it is a gorgeous alternate to the very very popular Ava which ranked number 5 on the SSA list last year.
Update: I too prefer Ivy.
Update 2: I don't want to use it, just wanted to see what people thought of it.

If I was to use Jean it would to be to honor my grandmother, Billie Jean (Double first name) and Great-aunt / surrogate grandmother, Norma Jean (First and middle).
