Characteristics of Averie
Etymology & Historical Origin - Averie
Averie is a cutesy feminized variation of the unisex name Avery. Avery is a name with an interesting etymology. It actually originated as a Norman French patronymic surname, from their medieval pronunciation of the Olde English masculine name Ælfræd (Alfred) which comes from the Germanic elements meaning “elf counsel” indicating some type of mythological supernatural wisdom. Avery eventually developed from a surname into a successful unisex name. At first it was more popular for baby boys, but eventually the X chromosome took over and now it’s preferred for little girls. As a result, the more feminized forms of Averie and Averi became Americanized respellings, ostensibly as a way to make the name look more female. Today Avery is a Top 20 female name in both the United States and Canada.
Popularity of the Name Averie
Given the enormous popularity of Avery as a girl’s name in the United States, we were not surprised to see Averie added to the list in 2004 (clearly in reaction to the high usage of Avery). Notwithstanding, Avery remains a popular boy’s name in America, practically a Top 200 favorite. Therefore, Avery is squarely unisex with widespread acceptance for either gender. Still, parents of little girl Averys decided to change the “y” to an “ie” making it even more girly in a colloquial, informal sort of way (much in the same way that the “-ee” suffix “cuteifies” a gender-neutral name). Averie is a darling little “elf” for sure, but Avery still looks more sophisticated and classical. Averie is a spelling preferred by parents who favor informal over traditional. It’s a very American thing to do.
