    To me it depends on what pronunciation you are going for.

    I read Evelyn as “ev-ah-Lynn”

    I read Evelyne as “ev-ah-Line”

    That and I personally don’t care for spelling a name in a less common fashion. I think it leads to confusion.

    I prefer Evelyn Celeste. I think it looks a little more traditional.

    violet21293:  +1.   If you’re going for the the “lynn” sound and you want an e at the end, then add another n, Evelynne so that it’s pronounced correctly (my middle name is Lynne, btw).

    But I still like Evelyn better.

    I voted Evelyn because I would also pronounce Evelyne as Ev-uh-line.

    I like Evelyne because that’s how we spell it in French (Évelyne, pronounced Éh-veh-lin kind of?) anyways very hard to spell it out so that English speakers understand it sorry! 

    oh and Céleste is a beautiful name too : )
