I like this as a nickname for Evelyn or Genevieve.

My daughter is called Evie and I love it. It's a nice way to be a modern tribute to my nan who was Evelyn, without using the whole name, although this wasn't in mind when choosing the name, I actually heard it for the first time on The Mummy & Mummy returns, good job I wasn't watching Shrek!

Evie is such a cute name. It makes me think of an adorable little girl, and a lovely young woman.

Natalie Portman played the character of Evie in the movie 'V for Vendetta'.

I think this name is really cute.

I think it would be nice for a girl, but maybe a bit hard to work with if she tried to enter any corporation type job.

Eevee (pronounced the same way) was also the name for a type of brown Pokemon that looked like a fox. While Eevee was cute, no one who grew up in the nineties will be able to take someone named Evie seriously.

Evie let your hair hang down (lyrics).

Horrid. Why not Eva or Ava? Evie sounds trashy and childish.
-- Anonymous User  11/15/2007
Cute, but I prefer Ava and Eva.

My name is Evie & I love it! I disagree with the comment about not being able to take the name 'Evie' seriously because of a Pokémon. I grew up in the 90's and most of my friends thought it was insanely cool to have the same name as a Eevee (albeit being spelt differently). Most of them have forgotten about it now though, and I seriously doubt that in 30 years I'll be getting 'Evie? Like the Pokémon?'.

This is a childish nickname. As a given name it sounds even worse.

Evie is the name of Niki Reed's character in the movie Thirteen.

I think it's sweet, and it would be a nice nickname for Ever.

Gorgeous! I have a daughter named Evie and absolutely love it.

It is a classical name that never gets too old.
-- fantasy  11/28/2009
I think it sounds too childish and twee for a full name. I like it as a nickname for Evangeline, Evangelina and Evelyn.

So cute, I would call my child Evie.

"Evie" is an Australian rock song released as a single in 1974 by Australian music legend and former frontman of The Easybeats, Stevie Wright. It was written by Harry Vanda and George Young. It is reportedly the only 11-minute song to chart at #1 anywhere in the world.

It features 3 parts (Parts I, II and III) and some critics consider it as one of the most perfect rock n' roll songs ever, encapsulating the three basic themes of all love songs (I) Baby it'll be great once we're together ("Let Your Hair Hang Down"), (II) Baby, it's so great now that we're together ("Oh Evie... I'm nothing without you"), (III) Baby, it's so bad since you left me ("I'm Losing You"). However, the loss in this case is more tragic than the usual "boy loses girl" scenario - it describes the singer's emotions following Evie's death in childbirth.

It goes for eleven minutes in total. Part One by itself proved a big hit when it was released. Supergroup The Wrights have done a cover version of the song.

It is the world's longest number 1 song in any chart in any developed country.

As it says on the name's homepage... "Evie" is a diminutive, a nickname. It certainly is cute for a young girl, but if that girl would ever like to be a woman in the business world: "Evie" will be a tough full name to pass. It will likely prevent a career from taking off quickly... Would you like to handicap your child? "Evelyn," "Evangeline," or even "Eve" (as much as I hate it) are suitable, acceptable names.
Evie Jacobson, a lawyer? A doctor? Oh, cringe, no. Evangeline Jacobson? Evelyn Jacobson? Yes, please. Very classically gorgeous.

You must give your children names that will aid them, highest of all... But you must also give them names that they can grow into and be the adults of their destiny-- names that they will thank you for.

Evil Evie! It is a nickname of a girl from school that was horrid and it has stuck in my mind. Do not like the name. Sounds babyish too. Sorry!
-- Anonymous User  9/3/2011
I love the name Evie. I think it's very cute; although as already said, if this "Evie" wanted to enter the business department, she would struggle because of her name.

To those claiming that Evie is childish, immature or can't be taken seriously, how about some perspective? Dr. Evie or Dr. Neveah. Dr. Evie or Dr. Kaecee. Evie's starting to look better, no? Also keep in mind that Evie is a diminutive, therefore it's perfectly acceptable for it to sound less than professional. Nicknames aren't meant to kick off Very Serious Careers. Yes, some people *do* use it as a full name instead of a nickname but really, there are much worse things to be called.

As for the whole "it only works on little girls!" argument, is it *really* that difficult to imagine say, a grandma called Evie? Grandma Evie. Sounds alright to me.

I have a younger sister named Genevieve and we all call her Evie. I think it is a great, versatile name but it is probably better to have a full name instead of just Evie. My sister likes her name a lot.
I think you can easily a be doctor or lawyer and go by 'Evie'. I picture an intelligent woman when trying to see it on an adult.

Sort of confused as to why this is so popular... It's not a real name, it's a nickname. It's like naming your kid Johnny or mike. However, this is a super cute nickname for two beautiful names, Evelyn and Genevieve. It makes more sense to give your daughter one of those names and just call her Evie as a nickname, but that's just me.

Evie Hudek is a US senator from the state of Colorado.

For reasons I don't understand, this name has become rather trendy among characters in young adult books, both published and aspiring to be published. I've also heard it on a fair number of movie and tv characters lately. It's kind of cute as a nickname, but not something I'd want to go by past elementary school.
-- Anyechka  6/12/2013
I think Evie is one of the cutest names out there. Can't say anything bad about it.
-- Alexanna  5/16/2014
There are a lot of comments here saying it should only be a nickname for say, Evelyn, Genevieve or Evangeline. Problem is, I think Evie is a lovely name but I think those three longer names are ugly. I'm not going to give my kid a long name I hate just so I can call her the nickname I really wanted.

For those saying her name will hinder her if she ever tries to get a corporate job... firstly, I disagree. Doctor Evie Jones (or whatever surname) sounds fine to me. Secondly, this is the 21st century. Employers care more about job knowledge, work ethic, people skills, intelligence, a hundred things over "name". If someone decided not to hire my daughter because of her name, then that says a lot about them and it might not be the best place to work!

I for one, love the name Evie and think that it is a great nickname or full name. I have 2 daughters called Evie and Hazel and everyone comments on how lovely their names are.
-- Anonymous User  6/16/2014
I agree with those who think this name stands on its own. It seems stupid to say that it couldn't be a good name because it's commonly used as a nickname. Many now "proper" names are diminutives of longer ones, and I'm not just talking about Johnny, Jack (James or john), Bella, Kate, Bess (Elizabeth), Peggy (Margaret), Alex (Alexander) and the like.

Second, to argue that the name will keep your daughter struggling to make it in the corporate or professional world is silly. Who calls a doctor, professor, or lawyer by their first name regularly? If your Evie achieves any professional degree, she'll be Dr. Or Prof. Smith, or counselor Smith to most. Having what some consider a pet name is not a hinderance in the professional world. My gynecologist regularly goes by her nickname professionally, "Cricket" -- I kid you not. She's completely professional and well respected, and the name looks fine on her name plate. Dougie Howser, M.D. Anyone? I think there's more than a tinge of sexism here (yes, especially from the women who are advising against this name for this reason). A "classic" name or a "serious" name is the only name for a female doctor or lawyer? Please. It's alright to have dr. Tom Jones or dr. Pete Townsend, but not dr. Lizzie Bennet? No, to be taken seriously she needs to be dr. Hermione granger. That's as classical as they come. As the poster said above, get with the times. Quit it with the backwards sexism.
