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.
