  • "My name is Avrie. I really dont like the spelling, cause everyone calls me Arvie when they first meet me. I like the uniqueness of it though, it seperates me from all the other Averys in the world. i think its very feminine, and even though its a boys name too, it really doesnt bother me. I like to be differnet. I only know one other Avrie, and that makes me feel good. I love to be unique.f" Jun. 6, 2013: Report as inappropriate
