Popularity aside... I really don't care for it... *especially* when pronounced like "AY-vuh". Before it became popular I always said it like "AW-vuh" (like the beginning of avacado). I said it like this because the first time I heard the name was on an episode of Law & Order: SVU... there were three Romanian sisters named Irina, Ava, and Oksana. Ava's name was said like "aw-vuh".

I think "AW-vuh" is prettier than "AY-vuh" (I would say Eva like "AY-vuh", not Ava), but I don't really care for either.
