AVIS.  Ferguson thinks it is an extended form of the Teutonic stem av (Goth. àvo), meaning "ancestor."  (Surnames as a Science, Ferguson, 1883).  It is probably the same as Avice (q.v.), a form of Gothic Avagisa (q.v.), meaning "ancestor-hostage."  Also spelled Aviz

Miss "Avis" Webster, sister of Sir Richard Webster, M.P., lives, and is I trust in good health. HIC ET UBIQUE (Notes and Queries, v.11, 1897)
