Averill is a gender-neutral name of Old English origin and a rare variant of the 7th-century saint Everild. Taken from the old terms eofor, meaning "boar," and hild, meaning "battle," Averill insinuates a ferocious fighter. Most references to Averill predate us all, with Sarah Averill Wildes being one of the best-known in the 17th century. Her story is a classic of its time - boy meets girl, boy falls for girl, boy and girl get married, boy's first wife accuses girl of being a witch. Thankfully, baby Averill will grow up in a world where the fantasy of witches only resides on TV and in books.
