Avdiyes is an old and rare Russian Christian male first name. Its form Avdiisus was included into various, often handwritten, church calendars throughout the 17th–19th centuries, but was omitted from the official Synodal Menologium at the end of the 19th century.

It is possibly derived from the Latin word audio, meaning to listen, or from the Biblical Hebrewabdiyës̄, meaning a servant (slave) of Jesus.

The patronymics derived from "Avdiyes" are "" (Avdiyesovich; masculine) and "" (Avdiyesovna; feminine).
