Meaning & Origins

Of uncertain origin, probably Germanic, from a short form of various female compound names containing the element av (of uncertain meaning). St Ava or Avia was a 9th-century abbess of Dinart in Hainault and a member of the Frankish royal family. However, evidence for the existence of the name between the early Middle Ages and the mid-20th century is lacking, and it may well be a modern invention. Its popularity since the 1950s is largely due to the film actress Ava Gardner (1922–90).
