Girl or boy? Like or dislike?

Boy, just because I know a boy called Avery....I like it. Before I met him I would have presumed it was a girls name though!

Dislike. Makes me think of where you keep birds. Maybe I'm pronouncing it wrong though blush

It makes me think of a bird house.

Was avery the mean little lad in charlotte's web? I don't like the name i'm afraid.

like for a girl

Boy. Based only on Grey's Anatomy, and I think even then it might be a surname. Ooh, saying that, girl in Jerry Maguire I think?

Isn't Avery a brand name for scales? That was my first thought. Really horrible imo. Sorry.

Girl - as on real housewives of new york

I have Avery on my imaginary list for a girl. DH isn't so keen.

Do people think its too 'American' hmm

I like it.

I thought that too booboochicken, but wasn't he actually called Arable? Or did i dream it?

janek Sun 25-Nov-12 09:44:06

Ah, arable was the surname. He was called avery. Fyi.

hanahsaunt Sun 25-Nov-12 09:49:06

I know a baby girl called Avery - love it.

CambridgeBlue Sun 25-Nov-12 09:49:44

Makes me think of very dull office supplies - sheets of labels and stuff like that. Sorry!

bryonywhisker Sun 25-Nov-12 09:51:34

yup Avery labels

ohfunnyface Sun 25-Nov-12 09:53:50

Don't like- reminds me of where you keep birds. Non gender specific for me.

Alisvolatpropiis Sun 25-Nov-12 13:49:25

It's a boys name but does make me think of an aviary.

Love it for a girl.

Never heard of it on a boy. I guess it's ok
