Aubrey – Scary Mommy

Aubrey

This one is a Norman French derivation of the Germanic name Alberic, which includes elements that mean “elf” and “power,” so we end up with a meaning of “Fair Ruler of the Little People,” which just might be the coolest meaning ever. A name that parents aspire to, because we are all just trying to be rulers of the little people in our houses.

Nicknames:

Bre, Bree.

Famous people named Aubrey:

Actress Aubrey Plaza from Parks and Recreation; Nashville star Aubrey Peeples; daughter of Terrence Howard.

Fun fact:

A historically masculine name, Aubrey has been around since the Middle Ages. As a common girls’ name, it’s a variant of Audrey, with a “b” instead of a “d,” as some feel that’s a softer sound.
