The surname Averett is of English origin, derived from a given name that was common in medieval England. It is believed to be a variant of the name 'Everard', which itself comes from the Old Germanic elements 'eber', meaning 'wild boar', and 'hard', meaning 'brave' or 'strong'. The name thus originally meant 'brave as a wild boar' or 'strong boar'. Over time, the spelling of the name evolved, with Averett being one of the forms that emerged. This surname may have been adopted by individuals who wanted to associate themselves with the qualities attributed to the wild boar, such as courage and strength.
