- Personal experiences with the name Avery: | Edit
My sister's name is Avery, and she's in her late 20's. She finds it a bit jarring to have grown up with a rare and unusual name, only to now hear "Avery, stop that!" and "Avery, be nice or we're going home!" in the grocery store, at parks, etc. You think you're being a trendsetter for picking this name? Please. Be original and pick something that's just beginning to rise on the trend graph, like my parents did, then bask in the glory of being ahead of the curve!
My daughter's name is Avery, and I get SO many compliments. Everyone stops, repeats it, and smiles. I LOVE that I picked this name. The only downfall so far is that as a 2 year old, it is very difficult for her to say. She calls herself "rae-ree".
I have 3 year old twins and i named them Aaron and Avery they get SO many compliments, especially Avery they love it!
I Have A 3 Month Old Daughter And I Get Lots And Lots Of Compliments On The Name. People Always Go Awwww Thats So Cute When I Tell Them.
I think the name Avery is beautiful for a girl! I don't have a child yet, but if I have a girl I will name her Avery. It was originally a boy's name but has evolved and become a lovely girl's name; like Shelby, Morgan, Addison, Riley etc... the list goes on and on! It is great for a boy too. I just thought I should speak up I didn't want someone to pass by this gorgeous name because of one person's opinion.
