Evan Lysacek is currently my favorite celebrity, but I liked the name Evan before I had ever heard of him. I definitely like it for a boy - not a girl! Unfortunatly others like it too and it is getting quite common.

I like the name Evan for a boy. It is masculine and fun sounding.

A good surname could be Lee, and then it would sound like heavenly.

Brings to mind a good-looking, sensitive boy. I really like this name.

I really like the name Evan. I was on a website that said Evan was Irish for Young Warrior. I really like this name. It's adorable.

I like this name for a boy. My father's name is John, so I might use this less popular equivalent of John. I don't like Ian, another equivalent of John.

I knew a girl once named Evan.

Evan could also be a latinised form of the Old English girls' name 'Æffan' (pronounced Ev-un/an).

I like the name Evan. It's a very strong-sounding name.
-- Penneyperson  7/8/2007
I think Evan should also be considered a feminine name. You've got actress Evan Rachel Wood as an example and it's not the only girl named Evan I've heard of.
-- Anonymous User  8/5/2007
No offence, Mindy, but just because some people misuse the name doesn't mean it 'should be considered' differently. My brother's name is Evan (he's the only one, male or female, that I know) and he hates that Evan Rachel Wood's parents stole his name! If it ever 'should' be considered feminine, it should be because of the real, historical reason listed above.

I know I've already shared my opinion on this name, but I'll do it again. I still like this name, and I happen to know somebody who has it. I think most Evan's are nice people--I've never met a bad seed named Evan.
-- Penneyperson  10/16/2007
I like this name, it's short, simple and sounds good.
-- dreamgirl54  11/7/2007
JK Rowling's Harry Potter series features a minor Death Eater character named Evan Rosier.
-- cmalory  12/7/2007
We love this name, we named our son Evan. This is the only name I personally liked and it is tough for me to pick and choose a name for my children being a school teacher. It is not widely used at all and it is still the name that everyone knows how to pronounce and spell! I love it!

In August Rush, August's birth name is actually Evan Taylor. He changes it to August Rush when he starts performing on stage.

From the Hebrew, Eben or Even, meaning a rock or a stone. It is found in the compound word Ebenezer in 1 Samuel 7:12 saying "Then Samuel took a stone and set it up between Mizpah and Shen. He named it Ebenezer, saying, "Thus far the LORD has been our help."
-- rogerelisabeth  5/7/2008
I like the name, even though it is very common and a bit dull. It has a pleasant sound, and it's short and simple. It doesn't sound like the name of a jerk either.
-- slight night shiver  5/23/2008
Cute for a little boy. Great for a teenager. Awesome for an adult. You can't go wrong with this name for either gender.
-- Anonymous User  10/13/2008
There's something about this name that appeals to me, yet I don't know what. I really like the sound of it, anyway. =D

Evan Esar (1899-1995) was a American humorist. Apparently he's commonly found in crossword puzzles.
-- itskokosfault  7/27/2009
This is probably my favorite masculine name, and yes I think it's definitely more masculine. I love this name.
-- Tawnee  8/3/2009
I LOVE this name! I imagine a good-looking guy with this name. This is actually my boyfriend's name who is 15. So, yes I love it!

Evan Wylde was one of the main characters in the TV show "The Secret Life of us". Played by Samuel Johnson, Evan was a scruffy womanising novelist.
-- SandSea  3/23/2010
I like this name for a girl. I have a friend who named her daughter Evan. =)
-- SamJr7  3/29/2010
Very nice and it's not even too common. But I have no idea why people think that this would be good for a girl. It sounds horrible on any woman.
-- Anonymous User  4/17/2010
I like this name for a boy, but it sounds stupid on a girl. It doesn't sound that feminine. Leave this name to the boys and use Evanna on girls instead.
-- bananarama  6/15/2010
I love the name Evan it's such a guy name. My boyfriend's name is Evan and he's such a great guy!
-- thesha  7/21/2010
Cute for a guy, NEVER for a girl.
-- Chrila96  12/5/2010
Evan could be... Another form of John. John in Spanish is Juan. The j resembles an I, and the U resembles a V. So Russians made Ivan. Badly pronounced, it could make Evan. Evanna could be its feminine form. Evanna Lynch, the actress, plays Luna Lovegood in Harry Potter, and she is so pretty!
-- Schizofrenic  1/10/2011
Sounds like a great name for musicians. Pretty much every Evan I've met was a musician.
-- Anonymous User  4/11/2011
I love the name, but surprisingly, although I love it so much, I prefer it for a middle name. It could be a mix for styles: adorable; shy; nerdy; sweet, but also sexy; dangerous; bad boy. A mix of every quality! If I was a boy, I would have wanted the name Evan.
-- Cky297  6/25/2011
Evan, one of three main characters from the horror series called EverymanHYBRID.
-- CanadianChibi  8/22/2011
Evan is my brothers name. It's cool and reminds me of humorous boys- like my brother. Evan means something like " god is good." I really like the sound of his name!
-- Melys11  1/1/2013
This is an adorable name! Melys11, this is my bros name too, and if I have a son I would consider the name. Evan sounds modern but suits all ages and many people. I'm so glad this name is getting popular. My brother is a very nice, generous person, so I think it is a very good name for an influence.
-- MelissaR  3/10/2013
Evan Cross is the lead character on the Canadian sci-fi show "Primeval: New World". He is portrayed by Niall Matter.
-- Fray  2/19/2013
My brother is also named Evan, and his name suits him very well. For some reason, many people think of Evan as a name for short, dark guys, but my brother is 6'5" with blonde hair and blue eyes, so a lot of people change their perception of the name after meeting him.

Also, I have heard of it as a girls name, but the only other girl Evan I know of (besides Evan Rachel Woods) is Evelyn, Evan for short.

Seems like I'm the only one who doesn't like this name. The sound isn't terrible, it's just too trendy and doesn't seem like it'll age well to me.
-- Oohvintage  5/25/2013
I really love this name. It's in my top three for guys.
-- shadow1999  8/6/2013
A famous bearer was author Evan Hunter.
-- shadow1999  8/6/2013
Evan is a simple name with a nice sound, but it's also too popular at the moment for my taste. And no, it should never be used on a girl: celebrities have wacky names, but even Evan Rachel Wood uses her middle name so she wouldn't be thought of as a man.
-- Anonymous User  2/25/2014
I kind of like this name, but in the back of my head all I can think of is Freaky Friday. Jamie Lee Curtis was some type of psychologist and had a very dependent sad patient named Evan.
-- tiff-the-terror  7/2/2014
Evan Longoria- MLB All Star.

Very decent and highly respectable name
