Waverly – Scary Mommy

Waverly

This is said to be of English origin and mean "quaking aspen" - which is hard to verify, but the word "waver" comes from the Old English word for "restless," and the "-ly" suffix indicates a meaning of meadow, so it's possible. One thing's for sure: "restless" will definitely describe your little Waverly, especially during occasions when she's supposed to be sitting still and being quiet.
