Avri’s Second Name Was Derived From Her Relatives’ Names

After the announcement of the birth of Avri, all the fans of the couple were happy but they found the second name given to her amusing and it raised a lot of questions, thus, the couple had to explain the meaning behind the name. Her first name, Avri is simply pronounced ‘Av-reeyl’ and was given to her because of the nice tone to it, without any special reason. However, her second name, Roel holds a lot of history to it as it is a mixture of her Grandparents’ names. The first two letters of the name, ‘Ro’ was gotten from the name of her paternal grandfather, Robert Downey Sr., his wife, Rosemary, and Susan’s mother, Rosie. The last two letters, ‘el’ was derived from the name of her paternal grandmother, Elsie, and maternal grandfather, Elliot Levin.

The couple came together and decided to give their daughter the name, Roel in honor of their parents.

Her Educational Background Is Not Open To The Public

Although she has quite been brought into the limelight due to her father’s fame and popularity, information about her is not so open to the public. The school Avri attends is not known to the public, which might be for security reasons. Her father mentions her a lot in some of his interviews, indicating that the father-daughter duo is quite close. He once mentioned how one of Avri’s popular phrases was used in the blockbuster movie, Iron Man which he was cast in after sharing the phrase with the directors of the movie.

Pictures of the father and daughter duo are usually seen all over the internet. She also attends red carpet events with her father and mother as well. Presently, she has not featured in any movie and although it is known that she loves her father’s career, she has not shown any interest in appearing in any movie. We’d just have to wait and see if Avri will eventually pick up acting as a career in the future.
