Dava = day-va

Alanna = ah-la-na

Would you spell either different?

Dava is NMS, I'm really not a fan of made up names, and I would have never gotten that pronounciation from the way you spelled it...I like Alanna though!

It's not made up, it's a Hebrew name and means beloved friend

Dava isn't "made up", just for the record! I don't like Dava, personally, but I love Alana. You can spell it any way you want.. if you are pronouncing it that way I'd go with Alana or Alanna. If you want IL-ana then do Ilana. If you want A LANE uh then do Alaina.

Dava can be used as a nickname for Davida (which is the Hebrew name meaning beloved friend) but it doesn't stand on it's own IMO.

My name is Dava. It's pronounced Day-va. My dad got killed before I was born and his name was David. I was named in memorance of him. Sure it's unusual, but kids names should be as unique as the child is IMO. It does "stand alone" because it has for 31 years for me. I like having a name that is not all that common. However, there is another Dava on JM. She frequents the photography board.

I like Dava. Then again, I am biased.

It's listed on it's own in my names book, but then so are a lot of names beginning in Dav, and they all say "from the Hebrew David, beloved friend".

OMG can we split this hair any further? I don't care for the name. I see it as a nickname for Davida, but it's certainly not a terrible name just not one I would use for the reasons I already stated. That's my opinion and I was not at any point rude about it. Its It's funny how on this board you can say you don't like a name but as soon as you give a reason people jump down your throat.

I think Alana (pron. ah-lawn-ah)is a very cute name. I considered it when I was pregnant.
