It's the name of the first Elves Queen! I looked in Tolkien Books. Mr. Downey really chosed the good name.

Techy Mommie Says:


I named my youngest Avri Eliana it is pronounced like it looks Av-ri. When I first announced her name my mom kept saying Ay-vuh-ree so I purposely went with this spelling. Haha!

Selkit Says:


If I just saw this name without any context, I would think it was pronounced AH-vree, like Aubrey with a V, not Ay-vuh-ree. I quite like the former pronunciation.

indiefendi2 Says:


It doesn't look like it would be pronounced Avery to me. It looks more phonetic. av ri.

RoddyThlayli Says:


I wouldn't pronounce this the same as Avery-- more like Avery without the e (AE-vree as opposed to AE-vurr-ee). I like both.

spiderfish Says:


This surely can't be pronounced the same way as Avery.
It just looks like someone missed the 'L' off Avril

Guest Says:


I was wondering why Avri was getting so much attention on here! I think it's so cute! I would never guess that it was "Avery". This is how you make a common name unique without being "yooneek".

[This whole time I kept thinking he would name his girl Elsa because he hinted at that like a month ago]
