The meaning of "Aubrey"

What is the meaning of my name?
I looked it up at wikipedia.org, and I found this:

"Of French origin, Aubrey results from the phonetical mutation of Alberic, which is a Germanic given name, meaning "Fair Ruler of the Little People", or "King of the Elves".[1] The name Alberich is the German variant. The Anglo-Saxons used before the Norman conquest the corresponding variant Ælf-rīc (seeÆlfric).
A female form is already recorded in the Middle Ages as Aubrey, Aubrée and does not share the same etymology, that is from Germanic Albereda,Alberada. It was very common in the genealogy of the noble Norman families (See f. e. Aubrey of Buonalbergo).
The name is traditionally male, but is more commonly used as a feminine name in the United States. It was the 41st most popular name given to girls born in the United States in 2009.[2] It was last ranked among the top 1,000 most common names for boys in the United States in 2002. It was the 479th most common name for all males in the United States in the 1990 census.[3] The main reason that Aubrey became a popular female name is because of the song "Aubrey" by Bread."
Listen to the song, and you'll fall in love with it. The lyrics of the song did happened tom eon 2011.

Other website said Aubrey means : 
"Noble, Bright"
"Elf, Bright"
"In English, the name Aubrey means Rules with elf-wisdom. Introduce into Britain from France by Aubrey de Vere, a friend of William the Conquerer. De Veres grandson became the Earl of oxford."
"In French, it means blond ruler."
"makes me very idealistic, sensitive, and inspirational."
"The name Aubrey is currently ranked #41 US births, it's on 4344 name lists, it has been rated 8799 times"
"If these qualities are not understood and properly directed through music, art, or other creative expression, you could become jealous and possessive of those close to you."
 "Your feelings are so strong that you are inclined to build your life around certain individuals and become wrapped up in personal love rather than seeking into the deeper truths of life; thus you could suffer losses in your affections and shattered ideals."
" You are generous and people are drawn to you because of your friendly and sympathetic nature."

"You are usually the best at everything ... you strive for perfection. 
You are confident, authoritative, and aggressive. 
You have the classic "Type A" personality. 
You are a very lucky person. Things just always seem to go your way.
And because you're so lucky, you don't really have a lot of worries. You just hope for the best in life.
You're sometimes a little guilty of being greedy. Spread your luck around a little to people who need it.

You are full of energy. You are spirited and boisterous.
You are bold and daring. You are willing to do some pretty outrageous things.
Your high energy sometimes gets you in trouble. You can have a pretty bad temper at times.

You are wild, crazy, and a huge rebel. You're always up to something.
You have a ton of energy, and most people can't handle you. You're very intense.
You definitely are a handful, and you're likely to get in trouble. But your kind of trouble is a lot of fun.

You are friendly, charming, and warm. You get along with almost everyone.
You work hard not to rock the boat. Your easy going attitude brings people together.
At times, you can be a little flaky and irresponsible. But for the important things, you pull it together.

You are a free spirit, and you resent anyone who tries to fence you in.
You are unpredictable, adventurous, and always a little surprising.
You may miss out by not settling down, but you're too busy having fun to care."
