Avi is a Hebrew male name meaning “father” and could also be used as a nickname for Avraham (the Hebrew form of Abraham meaning “father of many” or “father of multitudes”) or Avram or Aviram (meaning “high father”) or any name meaning with Avi. Of course, Avi could also be a short form for female names such as Aviva, Avila or Avis, making it a unisex name.Avi is also a Hindi word and unisex name with various meanings of “sheep (in reference to a woolen soma strainer)” and has later acquired various meanings such as  “protector, lord; mountain; wall, enclosure; air, wind; sun; ewe”, which seems to ultimately derive from a PIE root word.

Origin: Hebrew, Proto-Indo-European
