Meaning

Avery is the Old French version of Alfred and the Germanic Albereich, meaning “elf counsel”. It could also be linked to “aviary”, the English word for a bird shelter. Avery started life as a last name, but so far it’s experienced its greatest success as a girl’s name. While it does have androgynous qualities, Avery could be a pretty, bright little name for your little girl!
