Gender: Female Meaning of Audrey: "noble strength" Origin of Audrey: English Audrey's Popularity in 2017: #46

The name Audrey is a girl's name of English origin meaning "noble strength". Audrey is ranked #46 on our popularity charts and is often added to lists like Antique Baby Names Back in Style and discussed in our forums with posts like "Heaven Hell Purgatory -- GIRLS".

From the experts:

Audrey is one of the girls' names that have been rising due to their connection to Old Hollywood glamour--in this case the eternally chic and radiant Audrey Hepburn. Celebs who have chosen Audrey include Greg Kinnear, Steve Zahn, and Faith Hill & Tim McGraw. Audrey has another very different appeal as one of the elite group of girl names that mean strong, brave, or powerful.

St. Audrey was a sixth century saint who was particularly revered in the Middle Ages. Shakespeare bestowed her name on a rustic character in As You Like It.

A current representative is the French actress Audrey Tautou--who made her mark in Amelie, The Da Vinci Code, and as Coco Chanel--and who shares some of the charm of Audrey Hepburn.
