I simply love the name. It's uncommon, strong but still a beautiful girl's name.

The spelling Avra is Greek, it translates to aura or breeze. The more common spelling Avrah is the feminine form of Abraham in Hebrew, which is Avram or Avraham.

All of the Avras I know (and I know several) are Greek, and they pronounce it AH-vrah. I think the other user is right about it being a Greek name (also if you google it, it's largely associated with Greek people and places). I don't know about it being derived from αὔρη (aúrē) meaning breeze though. [noted -ed]

Pronounced Ahv'rah. Accent on the first syllabil, flat A's like in lava.

I saw this name on a real estate sign and fell in love. I pronounce it A-vra, with the first A being a long vowel sound. It's short, sweet and lovely. I also think it would age well.
