Avis Name Meaning
English: from the Norman female personal name Avice (Old French Avice, Latin Avitia, also found in a masculine form, Avitius). This is of uncertain origin, perhaps from a Celtic (Gaulish) name. French: Tanguay and Jetté have people named Avice, Avisse in Quebec from 1666. Nègre has an Avèze (Puy-de-Dome) also deriving from Avitius.
