Tavis is a boy's name with rich Irish, Scottish, and Old Norse roots. Stemming from the Old Norse stafr, meaning "staff" in English, Tavis is a variant of Gustav historically associated with Swedish royalty. Tavis has connections to other names like Tavish and Támhas, which share Irish and Scottish ties to Thomas. Thomas, popularized by the apostle, translates to "twin," making Tavis a delightful choice for parents welcoming twin babies or a child resembling an older sibling.
