Avery weighing scales and the crooked lawyer in the Tom Cruise film 'The Firm'.

I only know one and she’s a girl.

I think of Tex Avery.

Definitely don’t use it if your surname is Bighorse.

I like it! Only heard of it as a surname but it a bit different.

No sorry, I don't like it.

I'm not keen and see it as a girl's name because of those Bratz dolls. I prefer Aubrey.

It sounds like a girls name to me too.

Fine if you don't deal a lot with labels....

Not so keen, Aubrey?

FrancisCrawford Thu 08-Feb-18 12:37:22

Yup, office supplies, especially labels

dungandbother Thu 08-Feb-18 13:04:11

Girls name to me. I know one.

Dislike, sorry

I quite like it but would only use it as a middle name personally

dkb15164 Thu 08-Feb-18 13:38:57

I like it as a middle name but not sure about as a first name on the premise it might not suit all personalities e.g I can't imagine a rough and tumble, sport-mad Avery only a gentle sweet Avery. Is that weird to assign personalities to different names? Also can't imagine an Avery as a CEO or business leader as it's not a very demanding name. That sounds so weird to type. What other names have you thought of?

Reminds me of a character from Nashville. It's ok.

Awwlookatmybabyspider Thu 08-Feb-18 14:06:17

Very feminine

Carouselfish Thu 08-Feb-18 14:50:49

Aviary. That's all I think.
It's very American.

'Very feminine'

Yet when anyone suggests using a traditionally male name for a girl, no one ever says 'very masculine'.
