Teachers Write

I have many names.  My “proper” name is Margaret.  My nickname and my initials  are Meg- Margaret Elizabeth Geary.  When I went to middle school I told friends and teachers my name was Margaret.  That was short lived.  Family nicknames include Maggot (from my oldest brother), Mick and Micky and Meggy.

Ava is a name I would choose. Research says that the word may be from the Latin “avis,” meaning “bird.” It could also be a short form of the name Chava (“life” or “living one”).  To me it is a stately name.

It is a name that would give me confidence. More of a take charge personality with grace. I am short, but I feel the name Ava is for someone who presents as being tall, almost statuesque.
