Thank you for a quick response...interesting commentary about the French origin...maybe we will hear more from those who speak the language. Other than my family member, I have never heard the name used like we do (EH-Vuh) so I am interested in that movie as well (even if it may be really Eh-buh). Didn't know about the Hungarian influence (my husband will love that since that is his ancestory).
Also I have noticed that I have yet to locate a name book/baby book or source (including this website) that cites "Eh-vuh", only the versions of "EE-vuh" and "AY-vuh"....I find that odd, especially since we know that it is used, although less commonly, and the first few syllables of the names Evelyn
are the same as my Eva
