In Cretan dialect, hadne was how the word hagne was pronounced, meaning "pure". Another example of this is the name Ariadne. Hagne is a name too; spelled Agnes in its English form. Thus, the meaning of Euadne or Evadne is "good and pure" or "good maiden". [noted -ed]

I believe the second element to be αδνος (adnos)- "chaste, holy".

The name means "good and holy," since the 'eu' element is derived from the Greek word for "good," and the 'adne' element is derived from *adnos*, the Greek word for "holy."

I first read this name in the book "Helen of Troy", and I loved it right away. Evadne is a beautiful, feminine name with a lyrical quality to it. Very pretty and unique.

I think this is a really cool name. I have a friend who has several cousins with this name, and she actually bears a modern, Anglicized variation of the name: Evanthia. I don't know if it's common in Greece but several members of her family, going back generations have the names Evanthia or Evadne.

Very unique and pretty.

Evanthia is not an Anglicized variation of Evadne, it's a completely different name.

It has a really depressive origin, but it's a great name. The spelling reminds me of Evangeline, which reminds me of Nanny McPhee, which is a cute movie.
