Comments for EVERETT:

Everett sounds like a sophisticated gentleman.

I pronounce this name with two syllables, ev-ritt. I prefer it that way and it sounds better when saying it with my Mid-American accent. We are naming our first boy this and nicknaming him Rett. It is very gentlemenly, yet not pompous which I like.

I think this name is really cute with the nickname Ever.

Everett was my great-grandfather's name; when I told one of my friends this, she thought it sounded backwoodsy (I don't). I like the sound of it, but I'm not too fond of the meaning.

Everett goes with so many names that I like. I also knew a great guy with this name so I love it!

Fictional yes, but Ulysses McGill in the movie Oh Brother, Where Art Thou? played by George Clooney went by his middle name: Everett.

When I was little, I thought this name was very trashy because this really trashy metalhead guy in my extended family was named Everett. But then, I volunteered at a feline clinic/shelter and while I was there I met the sweetest cat named Everett. That cat completely changed my impression of this name.

I have a female friend with this as her middle name. I think she was named for her grandfather.

Another famous fictional bearer of this name is Dr. Everett Von Scott from the movie "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" (1975).

The character was originally Dr. Von Scott, but because he used a German accent, they changed it to Dr. Scott.

It has a really cool sound and meaning. I might even use it, but I don't want it to become insanely popular.

I've a friend with this name. For him, the correct pronunciation was EV-rit (two syllables). However. I have seen this name pronounced EV-ə-rit, EV-rit, and even EV-ər-rit. [noted -ed]

I think Everett sounds more like a girl name, but that's just me.

Former painter Thomas Kinkade's youngest daughter is named this, presumably after the painter Everett Shinn. IMO unless this is a family name, I think it is really terrible on girls. Thankfully it's still predominantly masculine. We've already lost Addison, Ashley, Taylor, Mackenzie, and countless others to the female gender; we don't need to lose Everett, as well.

In the television show Stargate Universe Colonel Young's first name is Everett.

My son's name is Everett Arthur. We fell in love with the name Everett when pregnant with my first child, who ended up being a girl. His middle name is a family name. We think it goes well together.

Love this name. My son is named Everett. We pronounce it with 3 syllables.
