The basic meaning of the word aviv is the stage in the growth of grain when the seeds have reached full size and are filling with starch, but have not dried yet. During the plague of hail (Exodus9:31), the barley was said to be aviv and the flaxgiv`ol.
Since Passover is always celebrated on 15–21 (or 22 outside Israel) Nisan, near the beginning of spring, "Holiday of Aviv". Pesach or Passover is always on the 14th of Nisan. The first day of Chag ha Matzoh or the Feast of Unleavened Bread is always the day after that, the 15th of Nisan.Hebrew: Chag Ha'Aviv חג האביב is an additional name for Passover.
Aviv is also a Hebrew male name. The old and rareRussian Christian male given name "Ави́в" (Aviv) was possibly also borrowed from Biblical Hebrew, where it derived from the word abīb, meaning an ear or a time of year where grains come into ear, also known as "Aviv" (or Nisan—the first month of the Hebrew calendar). The feminine version of the name is Aviva. The diminutives of "Aviv" are Aviva (Ави́ва) and Viva (Ви́ва). The patronymics derived from "Aviv" are "Ави́вович" (Avivovich; masculine) and "Ави́вовна" (Avivovna; feminine).
