A is for AVONIA
This is a christian name that I had never heard of before it cropped up as a family name in my family.There is something about this name that I really do like. If I had known about it, when my daughter was born, Avonia would probably have been given to to her as a middle name.
My two closest ancestors with this name, had differing outcomes in tbeir lives – one verh short and the other a much longer life
