Evelyn is a beautiful name and it’s also classy. To me, it’s a girl’s name, not for boys. I don’t think a boy would want to be called Eve or Lynn, unless he enjoys being feminine. I consider Evelyn to be a discontinued boy’s name since it sounds more feminine than masculine. I like this name and I’m proud that so many parents are naming their girls this.

Everyone has that *one* name everyone else likes, but you don't. Evelyn is that name, for me. I just really don't like it. Sounds old. Also too overused. I don't understand the hype... Nothing cute/gorgeous about it. Sounds too plain.
Sorry not sorry.

It's my one grandma's name. I love it, I think it's very pretty. I also associate the name with Evylyn Mikomagi so it avoids the weird "that's a close relative name" stigma that could come with dating a girl with that name.

I love the name Evelyn for a girl! It’s classy and beautiful! Also delicate and girly! I'm afraid I can’t see this as a masculine name at all. It’s probably because it’s predominantly feminine and I don’t think parents name their sons Evelyn anymore as Evelyn sounds too girly and it’s a combination of two feminine names Eve and Lynn. Evelyn and Vivian are a great twin pair! I don’t think it sounds masculine at all, sorry! It’s a lovely girl’s name though.

This is a really beautiful name. I know three girls by this name and they're all good friends. One is just Evelyn, one is Evelyn (but is called Evie [E-vee]), and one is Evelien (but is called Evie [EE-vee]). All of those names are lovely and I would call a future daughter one of them.

I was born in Tennessee to a young mother, and she named me after her nurse which was Evaline. But decided to change it to Evelyne which is the same as Evelyn Just with a silent E at the end, she added the E on the end because she said it looked better in hand writing. Go figure. I didn’t like my name growing up because everybody said it sounded like a old lady’s name. And when the famous cartoon he-man came out, kids in my neighborhood would call me Evil Lyn. But I’m pretty much okay with it now. Men usually nickname me Ev And women usually call me Evie.

This name is a beautiful name for a young lady and can represent the strength and the individuality, even though the name is growing, the name is still original.

I'm doing some historical research and have been looking at the baptismal register of St Margaret's Church in the parish of Westminster, in London, for July 1714. This entry (which is nothing to do with my research, by the way) caught my eye - so I thought I would share it here, because I think of Evelyn as a nineteenth/twentieth century name for boys and then girls, but here's a female Evelyn named after her mother:
"12 July 1714. Evelyn Smith D to Hawksworth by Evelyn"

I always love to find historical precedents for modern usage.

I don't see this as a masculine name, since the surname was derived from Aveline. I prefer other names though, like Evelyne spelled the French way, Eveline, or Evelina.

I love Evelyn. I like names containing -el- sounds anywhere in them or even if it's just in spelling like in this case and I love names with the -lyn- sound. Plus Evelyn is so feminine, classy, and, for me, sounds youthful, but classic and elegant, so actually has all that I like in a girl name. I think Evelyn on a boy could be nice years ago, like in the middle ages, it definitely could be an attractive name, but now it's too feminine and too many girls bear it, so in my opinion you'd harm your son naming him Evelyn these days and for me it's pretty much like you've called the boy Carolyn.

Much more feminine. The name it was derived from was feminine. It's only considered unisex because of the surname I guess? Anyways, I much prefer Evelyne, Eveleen, and Eveline. It's much tolo common spelled this way.

First off, Evelyn is super popular. I mean, where do you people come from? If you ever looked on the charts (which I doubt you have since you keep saying Evelyn is "uncommon") you'd see that in almost every place in the world Evelyn is higher than lets just say for example Sarah *gasp* I know! It's even more popular than Elizabeth, Julia and Victoria. This is in 2015. I know that almost everywhere Evelyn is higher than Sarah but the other names I only am 100% sure are less popular than Evelyn are in Canada which is where I am from.

My grandmother was Evelyn Octivia and my mom is Evelyn Delight and I'm Evelyn Elsbeth, and before them were two other Evelyns so I am the 5th one... my nickname is Evie... and when I was younger and went out partying, someone would ask me my name and if I felt playful I would tell them (Evil-lyn) and if I was trying to play off the better than thou attitude I would tell them (Hea-va-lyn) and if just with lots of friends I would just be Evelyn... but all close family and friends have always just called me Evie... first E short vowel and I silent and second e long vowel... I love my name and always happy to meet someone else named Evelyn.

This is my name and I go by Evy (pronounced EH-VEE) and I hate my name. Kids at school always make fun of my name by saying it's an old lady name or they snicker whenever a substitute teacher says my name out loud. I remember being like 7/8 and introducing myself to someone on the school bus and they said "Evy? Like Eve or what? Should I just call you Christmas or New Years Eve!?" I do get compliments though when I introduce myself to adults. Evy is okay for a nickname but LITERALLY 99% of people spell it like Evie and THAT'S NOT MY NAME. Anyways, I don't recommend naming your child this if you want them to get made fun of.

I personally kinda like it as a male name, but only when pronounced Eev-lin, all other ways are feminine to me. I have no idea why, especially seeing as how I'm American and have never encountered a male person with this name (or a female for that matter).

Though really I only like it when pronounced Eev-lin, so I guess I prefer it as a male name...

My name is Evelyn. Male Evelyn, pronounced eev'-lin. It seems like it's a completely feminine name in the US but here in the UK it's much more androgynous, if rare all across the board. I actually changed my own name to Evelyn because my given name was pretty dire, and if you're going to change your legal name, I figure, you might as well pick something interesting.

In debates I've had about whether it's a masculine or feminine name, other Brits generally feel that Evelyn as a girl's name is somewhat pretentious.

Just to mention, in my country, even if rarely used, Evelyn/Evelin is a male name. The female version is Evelyna/Evelina. Most of our female names end with "-a", so hard to think of Evelyn as a name for a female.

Evelyn doesn't have to be linked to Eve, which some people may find off putting. It can be said as ev - ah - lyn, as apposed to eve - lyn, and nicknames such as Evy (ev - ee) or just Ev can be used instead of Eve.

This name is obviously for a girl. I don't get how it sounds masculine for some people. Also, for me it doesn't sound old fashioned, but it's better than modern names like Brittney. The way I pronounce it, and people I know is Eh-Ve-Lyn or Eh-Ve-Leen.

I'm the oddball here - I don't like this for a girl at all. It actually sounds better suited to a male (similar to Everett, Evan, etc). To me, it sounds like the old-fashioned guys' name that it is (like Ira).

It seems crazy to me that 100 years ago names like Evelyn and Vivian were used for boys - now they're wholly feminine. What's even more curious is that, while Vivian is probably my favorite feminine name, and I love names with the 'v' sound in general (Donovan, Silvana, Yvette, etc.), I don't like Evelyn very much. I think it's because all the vowels are so short.

Aveline, on the other hand, is lovely.

Evelyn is, IMO, a beautiful name, but is rare and "old-fashioned" in that it was popular in the early 20th century. There was a popular song of the 1940's about "heavenly Evelyn."
In the U.S., I've only heard it pronounced Ev-Lin or Ev-A-Lin. In the UK, it is pronounced both Ev-A-Lin and Eve-A-Lin. Personal preference, apparently. Also in the UK, it can be a female OR male name. On a British TV episode ("Foyle's War") I heard different actors refer to a woman named Evelyn Green using both the "Eve" and the "Ev" pronunciations. Curious.

My name is Evelyn! It wasn't very common when I was born, except for on older women. When I was younger I disliked it for that reason, but around junior high I started to appreciate its old fashioned charm. I'm very happy it's making such a comeback- if it wasn't my name I would seriously consider it for a daughter. Interesting how much someone's perspective can change on a name, especially when it's their own :-)

One of the few names ending in -lyn that I actually really like. My guess is the fact that it does end in -lyn is a factor in its sudden popularity, along with a revival of some pretty great 19th century names. Evelyn has withstood the test of time and can suit any age without sounding out of place... It's just a beautiful name! Of course Evie can be a nickname, (adorable) or maybe Linnie, if you want to use the end sound of the name. I highly recommend this name, use it now before it becomes too trendy!

Evelin is also sometimes used as an Anglicisation of the Irish or Aibhilín and Éibhleann. Aibhilín is a variant form of Eibhlín, which is also derived from the Norman French Aveline. Éibhleann, on the other hand, is said to be derived from the Old Irish óiph, which means "radiance", "beauty"; a variant of this name is Éibhliu, another Anglicised form of the name is Evilin.

I do not think the argument for Evelyn as a male name is very good. True, it's technically from a surname, but the surname comes directly from the female name Aveline. I personally see this name as a "reinterpretation" of Aveline or Eveline, or an elaboration of Eve, and not as a surname-name at all. So it boggles me a bit on boys.

Evelyn Nesbit, born Florence Evelyn Nesbit, was a model and Broadway chorus girl in the early 1900s, who became famous for her long, wavy red hair and stunning beauty. She became notorious when her abusive husband, Harry Thaw, murdered Stanford White, a man more than thirty years her senior with whom she had had an affair when she was sixteen. L. M.

It's a pretty name, and it doesn't sound like the blatantly Christian name Eve. The problem is that most girls named Evelyn will be called Eve, and the name is totally boring and makes me think of wacky Christians and their rants. Since the name is quite overused and still very common, I wouldn't use it, and it is quite clearly related to the name Eve, I'd rather use the name Avalyn, in honor of the beautiful and epic tracks Avalyn and Avalyn II by Slowdive.

I see that in English-speaking countries the name Evelyn seems to be a little bit old-fashioned. I'm from Poland and its Polish version - Ewelina - is pretty popular over here. It was given mostly in the 80's and 90's (me, for example). I've met many women named like this. As I've said, I'm Ewelina, too, so I'm not objective but I think that Evelyn (pronounced in English) is a name full of classic charm. And I really don't want it to gain popularity.

Evelyn was the name of Kate Beckinsale's character in the film "Pearl Harbor." After I learned here that Evelyn means "bird" I understood why they chose it! The movie dealt largely with pilots. Pilots fly. So do birds. That character could also be described as flighty. During the film she flitted back and forth from one man to another.

Despite my somewhat negative association above, I love the name Evelyn and have for as long as I can remember. I would seriously consider it for a daughter. I almost always want to avoid names that have several pronunciations because one of them usually ends up bothering me. I’ve never heard Evelyn pronounced in a way that made my blood boil though. EH-vel-in, EV-lyn, EEV-lyn…I like ‘em all. A friend noted to me that the sound reminds her of the word “evil.†Inexplicably, even that doesn’t put me off! A real favorite.

My name is Evelyn and I like it because it's unique, no one has it. I read it meant 'quiet and agreeable'. It's either pronounced eve-lyn or ev-a-lyn.

While I spell it Evlyn (and have had to put up with innumerable misspellings) I have always loved my name because it is so rarely used these days. There may have been 10 Sarahs and Lindseys in my classes, but I was always the only Evlyn.

I always thought that Evelyn was a pet form of Eve or Eva. I guess not.

I am beauty, I am charisma. Everywhere I go heads turn and see me. Some people are jealous, others want to be like me. I am smart and I am not afraid to show it. I am Evelyn a river that flows and meets everything that there is to meet.

This name could also be pronounced with an "ee" sound at the beginning, Ee-veh-lynn or even Eve-lynn (like Eve and Lynn together). It´s getting a little bit popular, but it´s pretty.

There was a movie entitled 'Evelyn' about an Irish man trying to get his kids back after his wife died. His daughter's name is Evelyn. It is very sad but a good movie. I love the name Evelyn. It is on my top three list!

Evelyn is a cute name, mostly because I have such name. What's more, it has English roots and means "power". A simply beautiful name;].
