The French would probably say "ev-ANZH-el-LEEN".

This is a lovely name, but it remins me of the Evangelical Church, which I think is terribly misnamed, seeing that "evangelic" means roughly "good messenger"; what that carzy bunch seems to preach is fire and brimstone - "good messenger"? Not a chance. As a gay male, I have little trust and much dislike of these religious psychopaths.

I pronounce Evangeline as ee-VAN-jah-leen.

In Louisiana, where this name is used as a traditional Cajun name, the name is pronounced with the last syllable rhyming with "bin": eh-VAN-jeh-lin. Louisiana has an Evangeline Parish, pronounced that way, and there are several other Louisiana place-names and landmarks with that pronunciation. I met two women with the name Evangeline while I lived in Louisiana, and both of them pronounced the last syllable as -lin.
