Avery

elf counsel
ORIGIN: British
POPULARITY: 29
A medieval name, Avery may have magical roots connecting it to the Old English word for elf. Something of a changeling in the modern day, it has gone from primarily a boys' name to a widely popular choice for girls, shooting to the top 50 for American girls in 2007. Fans of the TV comedy 30 Rock will recall Avery Jessup, a no-nonsense reporter played by Elizabeth Banks, while music fans will remember musician Avery Barkley breaking women’s hearts on Nashville. Avery has also made many appearances in children’s fiction, with the male version popping up in Charlotte’s Web and Harry Potter.
