The meaning of this name, according to books I've read in Bulgarian, is the following: "life, joy of life, full of life".

Evelina is the protagonist of Fanny Burney's very enjoyable novel entitled Evelina: The History of a Young Lady's Entrance into the World (1778).

This is such a beautiful name. I wonder why it is not more popular?

Evelina is a character in the Doctor Who episode "The Fires of Pompeii". She is the (fictional) daughter of Lucius Caecilius Iucundus (who is a real historical figure). Evelina is a prophet who can see the future, but is trapped in Pompeii at the time of the eruption.

I usually don't like long names but this one is simply beautiful! It's a shame it's not used more often.

We gave this name to our daughter in 2008. However, I spelled it Evalina by accident on the birth certificate form and didn't actually find out until we registered her for school. Oops.

It really is a gorgeous name. And her middle name Camille flows so lovely with it.

My name is Evelina and I'm actually Indian. I grew up in Australia since I was 4 and people pronounce my name as Eh-vah-lee-nah but in India people usually pronounce my name as Ee-vah-lee-nah, I pronounce it like that as well when I speak Malayalam (which is my language that I speak in Kerala where I come from in India). I like my name a lot because it's different. I thank my parents for this beautiful name that they gave :D.

Hi, I'm an Evelina as well. It was passed down from a great great grandmother, pronounced the same, spelled a bit different. I have never known the origin of the name or the grandmother, being only 4 months old when she passed. I've a very old black and white photo of a bald baby sitting in the lap of a very stern faced elderly lady. I don't know much of her, she was apparently as stern as she appears in the photo. When I was little our older neighbor next door used to sing some words to a song about Evelina, my sweet Evelina. That was my first knowledge of there being other Evelinas. I now own a copy of the book Evelina by Frances Burney. I have yet to meet another Evelina!
