Other Origin(s):German
Aveline is both a girl’s name and a surname, meaning “hazelnut” in modern French. The word comes from the Italian city of Avella, after which the common hazel, Corylus avellana, was named. If you love the beautiful hazel tree and all the delicious things it produces (Nutella, anyone?) you could pay tribute by giving baby this name. Aveline is also an ancient Germanic name of uncertain meaning, from which the names Evelyn, Ava and Avelyn derive.
