I saw some questions about the meaning/femininity of the name, and seeing that my name is Avi, I thought I would answer them. Like it says, Avi means "our/my father" in Hebrew. In addition, Avi was the nickname of Avraham (also Abram), before he took the name of Abraham in the Torah. To answer another question, Avi is an Indian name as well! It's very common in the south of India, and it means "protector" in Sanskrit. (It also means many more things in Sanskrit). Because of this, it's a very popular name for boys for Jews and Indians.
Can also be used as a nickname for Aviva, Aviana, Avani, and other names beginning with Av/Avi.
