Ashton, Avery, or Everett— help!

brothers are Julian and Wesley... LOVE Avery, but know there will be a ton of little girls with the name as he grows. Trying to love the others just as much  Would love input as It's down to the wire with due date approaching! Thanks!!

Everett, flows better and a different ending too,  but not sure its the same style as your other boys names

maybe some others - here are some with the same 6 letters - Adrian, Callum, Calvin, Damian, Austin, Bryant, Duncan, Emmett, Gerald, Edward, Martin, Oliver, Thomas, Travis, Roland, Graham, Robert, Garett, Elliot, Nathan

Grant, Vincent, Bennett, Gilbert, Rhett, Scott, Christian, Sebastian, Stephen, Tristan, Clayton, Clinton,  Tyson, Asher, Brenton

Everett, of those options.  But Julian, Wesley, and Graham (from Suzanne's suggestions) is a really pleasing trio.

Graham I like for a middle name -- it's also my best friends son's name so wouldn't use it for that reason!  But a handsome name for sure.

Avery originates as a French pronunciation of Alfred. If it's the name you really love, then it's the name you should use.

Overall, there are currently about 4 girl-Averys for every boy-Avery in the U.S., but that's a statistical average. Your experience of the name may involved 3 boys and no girls. (My experience of the name is zero in both columns.) Seeing just the name, I would probably guess girl, but I would want to verify that -- nowadays, you can't even make assumptions about names like Logan and Carter, never mind Avery.

I have a boy Avery! I was worried about the same thing you are, which is why he is our second boy instead of our first. 

He is 7 now and it hasn’t been an issue for us  at all. Last year, he had a girl Avery in his class. There are definitely more girl Avery’s. We have only met 2 other boy Avery’s!
