Of uncertain origin and meaning.Some sources claim it might be linked to, if not be a younger variant of, Edeva. Others surmise that it might simply be a combination of Ed or any name containing the element Ed and Evie or any name ending in -ev(i)e. Yet another source claims that Edevie is a variant of Adawiyah, an Arabic name which is derived from an Arabic word used in the Qur'an for a type of plant or shrub that appears in the summer. It is unclear what exactly this plant is.While all of these theories need further in-depth research, the name is used, albeit rarely, in the English-speaking world as well as in Spanish-speaking countries.
