Is Avery a boy name ?

I am having a little boy and his name is going to be Casyn and I like the name Avery for his middle name .... I have alwasy thought it was a gender neutral name ( I actually thought it was a boy name but now I have only seen girls with the name) ... my husband also thinks it is a girl name .... but I love it ( he likes it too he just wants to make sure its a boys name lol ) ....

  • I have a friend with a son named Avery, and another friend with a daughter named Avery. It's kind of a unisex name, so I think you're safe. =)

  • I know a man named Avery. I don't think anyone would consider him even remotely female. I always thought it was gender neutral

  • yes I think it is kind of like the name Addison ... of course that is an "old" name for men ( and last names) and now it is really popular with girls...

    I think we are definatly doing Casyn Avery

  • I think your husband is thinking it's a girl's name because it is a very soft sounding name. It's definitely no chuck or nick haha

  • Patrick Stuart plays Deputy Director Avery Bullock on American Dad so it must be a male name...i went to school with a girl named Avery though...but i think i trust American Dad more

  • i looked up where it ranked on the SSN Baby names site. it was 32 for girls and 223 for boys.  So yeah in recent yrs it's been more a girl name than boy.  I know a girl named Avery
