Comments for the name Avery

Comments for AVERY:

Is actually pronounced Ave-ree (the "Ave" being pronounced like in "Ava"). I know one guy with this as a first name, and many people with this as a french-acadian surname. [noted -ed]

In our family, we pronounce Avery as AVE-ree (two syllables), though the first syllable, with its long A and V sounds, could be interpreted as more than two (but less than three) syllables.

We occasionally will turn Avery into three syllables for emphasis: AE-vuh-ree.

"Avery" is pronounced /AY-vuh-ri/. It is a boy's name. I love it!

I do like the name, but the majority seem to pronounce it AVY-ree. I pronounce it AVY-uh-ree. And thought that was the standard pronunciation.

I've heard it said 'av-eh-ry', the A like the first A in 'avatar'.
