Nothing particularly comes to mind other than that I love the name. My DH and my family hate it though so it can’t be on our list 🙁

@lealorali:  i think it’s a beautiful, old fashioned, classic name. it’s becoming pretty popular now i guess, but i dont know anyone named evelyn or with a baby  named evelyn so its not tarnished for me yet. :p

 if i thought really hard about what it made me think of, i thought of the evie pokemon. true story.

It was on our very short list of girl names!  I like it.  It’s gaining in popularity though.

@lealorali:  My grandma has this mannequin named Evelyn that she would dress up in different outfits she made. She changed it every few months and I always liked seeing the new things she would wear. So I like the name. I think it’s classy, and it’s something I would consider naming my kids.

A little old fashioned in my opinion.  However, call it “vintage” and everyone will love it!

I like it. Old-fashioned popped into my mind but in a positive way. It’s a classic, and it’s not ridiculous. It is definitely unique and not overused.

I love the name and I think it sounds unique but a co-worker and friend just named their girls that so I’m seeing it increase in popularity.

old fashioned, but far better than some of the children’s names i’ve come across at work
