You know in Greece, Evelina comes from Euanggelie, which means good news.

Hi everyone, I am expecting a little baby girl in three weeks. Evelyn has been the name we have picked. I love it. However, yesterday I heard the name Evelina and absolutely fell in love. Do you think Evelina goes with our surname which is Kinsella? Evelina Kinsella? There are a lot of syllables and lots of 'a' sounds. My husband doesn't think it goes. I would love some honest opinions please. Thank you.

My 3 year old granddaughter is blessed with this name however my daughter, attempting to be unique, spelled it EVELENA. A beautiful name for a truly beautiful little girl!

I LOVE this name! It's so energetic, sweet, dynamic and just full of joy and enthusiasm. It has something special about it. I've always thought it's a name for a beautiful, or at least pretty, maybe even a bit vain girl, who is bubbly, extroverted, fun loving, energetic, coquettish and full of enthusiasm, but also sensitive, artsy, intelligent and elegant and very likeable. In my country, the form of Evelina is Ewelina. I like it too and even thought about using it for my future child, but it's a bit dated in this strange way, it was pretty overused in 70's, 80's and maybe still a bit in early 90's (similarly as Evelina in Sweden, I suppose) and now it's almost unheard of nowadays on children and just associated with a woman in her thirties. But in English-speaking countries, I think Evelina is a beautiful alternative to Ava, Eva, Adeline, or even Evelyn, as it's so unique there. I like Evelina so much more than Eva. I actually think Eva is rather ugly.

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!

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.

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.

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

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.

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

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).

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