(prn: AH vah lee) I made this name up a few years ago and I haven't ever heard of it before

In the U.S.A., the name Avalee was used sparingly from 1911-1944, and then disappeared until 2001. It may be a form of Evelie, a French name based on Eve, or be Ava + the suffix -lee. As of the 2000s, the forms Avaleigh, Avalie and Avaley also are in use.
