What is behind Sophia’s name? Means “wisdom” in Greek. This was the name of an early, probably mythical, saint who died of grief after her three daughters were martyred. Legends about her probably arose as a result of a medieval misunderstanding of the phrase Hagia Sophia “Holy Wisdom”, which was the name of a large basilica in Constantinople.This name was common among continental European royalty during the Middle Ages, and it was popularized in Britain by the German House of Hanover when they inherited the British throne in the 18th century. It was the name of characters in the novels ‘Tom Jones’ (1749) by Henry Fielding and ‘The Vicar of Wakefield’ (1766) by Oliver Goldsmith.

What is behind Avery’s name? The name Avery is taken from the surname Avery, a Norman French translation of the Old English name Alfred, which in turn was derived from Ælfræd, meaning ‘Elf Counsel’. Avery is a gender neutral name; it is more common as a boys name in the United Kingdom, and more common as a girls name in the USA, reaching the thirteenth most popular name in the USA in 2014. It didn’t enjoy any substantial popularity as either a boys or a girls name before the 1990s.

Welcome to the world Victoria!
This name means “victory” in Latin, being borne by the Roman goddess of victory. It is also a feminine form of Victorius. This name was borne by a 4th-century saint and martyr from North Africa. Though in use elsewhere in Europe, the name was very rare in the English-speaking world until the 19th century, when Queen Victoria began her long rule of Britain. She was named after her mother, who was of German royalty. Many geographic areas are named after the queen, including an Australian state and a Canadian city.
