Avara comes from an Italian surname, the feminine form of Avaro which may be derived from an Italian word meaning “mean, miser; avaricious” via Latin avarus (covetous, greedy, avaricious) derived from a PIE root word. Avara is also a Spanish and Portuguese word which means the same thing as the Italian word above.
Avara could also be derived form the expression Avara kedavra, an Aramaic expression that’s more familiar as abracadabra, an incantation used for magic. The origin of the expression is uncertain, possibly deriving from a Hebrew or Aramaic expression, avra kedavra meaning “what was said has come to pass” or “I will create as I speak”.
