Latinized form of Euanthe. Characters named Evanthe appear in John Fletcher's 17th-century tragicomedy A Wife for a Month and Thomas Godfrey's 18th-century romantic tragedy The Prince of Parthia (which was the first play written by an American to be presented in the United States by a professional cast of actors).
