Etymology & Historical Origin - Averi
Averi is an American variant spelling of Avery, a name with quite an interesting etymology. It actually originated as a patronymic surname (i.e., passed from the father), from the Norman-French medieval pronunciation of the Olde English masculine name Ælfræd (Alfred). Alfred, in turn, is made up of old Anglo-Saxon elements which meant “elf counsel” indicating some type of mythological supernatural wisdom held by the name bearer. Avery eventually developed from a surname into a successful unisex name. At first it was more popular for baby boys, but eventually the name won out for little girls. As a result, the more feminized forms of Averie and Averi emerged as respellings primarily in the United States, ostensibly as a way to make the gender-neutral name look more female. Today Avery is a Top 20 female name in both the United States and Canada.
Popularity of the Name Averi
The unisex name Avery suddenly got very popular for little girls in the past 10+ years, so it’s no surprise (particularly for Americans) that alternate spellings started to appear. Now parents can choose from Avery, Averie or Averi. Avery is the most traditional and dignified option while Averie is youthful and cutesy with the “-ie” suffix. Averi is the option that looks slightly incomplete or unfinished. The spelling of Averi has only been on the Top 1000 list of U.S. baby girl names since 2008 and she’s always resided near the very bottom of the charts. This is definitely not a popular name or a preferred spelling of Avery. It’s given to roughly 300 babies per year, while Avery goes to about 7,300. We say stick with Avery – it just makes life a little easier.
