Meaning:Bird; desired
Avila is a feminine German name meaning “bird” or “desired.” This curious Ancient Germanic moniker is of unknown origin, however, it is commonly thought to be derived from the Norman-French name Aveline. Theories also include that Avila is related to the name Aveza from the Latin word avis, meaning “bird,” or associated with the German avi, which means “desired.” Avila’s obscure roots allow parents freedom to attribute a beautiful meaning of their own that best suits their little one.
