So DH and I have finally agreed on girls names. Here is the short list:

Evie Lorelei (my fave but I think using Evangeline nn Evie would give her more options in the future IYKWIM)
Evangeline Winter (DH fave)
Evangeline Hope (MN being family name)
Evangeline Lorelei (feels a bit long winded)

DD is Harper Emilie.

All are nms really but Evangeline Hope would be my pick. I really don't like Lorelei.

I prefer Evie as I just can't imagine that she will ever end up using her full name Evangeline'even as an adult.

Love Evangeline Winter and I would think that you would use the full name in future.

I also love you DD1's name  wub.gif

Evie Lorelai is pretty but I don't like Evangeline or the other names.

My pick is Evie Lorelei. Why?  Because the combo works nicely and to go with big sister Harper.

I don't think Evangeline works particularly well with Harper.

Of the Evangeline combos Evangeline Hope is the pick. Evangeline Winter is OK but doesn't really 'gel'. I think you need a one-syllable MN with Evangeline.  And yeah with Lorelei it's just too much.

As regards choices when she gets older, how many do you want?  She could call herself Eve for short.

Evangeline does have a host of NN's but that would not be reason enough to choose it for me, the sibset would.

ETA I like the 2+ 3 syllable pattern for the sisters and I think Lorelei is a lovely change for a MN.  So even more so Evie Lorelei.

I'd go Evie Hope or Evie Lorelai. If she's older she can always just use Eve. I'm not a fan of Evangeline though.

Thank you original.gif

Godrun I have had issues with the clash of Harper and Evangeline -- one being short, unisex the other long, very feminine. But I thought as she will most likely get Evie anyway and if she decides she prefers Evangeline when she is older it will matter less what her sisters name is. It does play on my mind though.

Not a fan of Ava/Eva, probably because more name associations I have people I know/have met rather than actually disliking the name though.

I love Evie, I'd go Evie Hope.

dont worry about names not going together - for most of their lives they will be separate individuals not even living together!!.

I know an evangelene who uses her full name all the time, so i think it would get used. I am not a huge fan of the name though, but love love love Evie!

My vote wouldbe for Hope as the middle name

I really don't like Evangeline at all, sorry. Evie is nicer although I do prefer ita a NN to Eve or Eva.

Evie Winter and Evie Lorelei would be my picks.

#15 ~THE~MAGICIAN~

Posted 02 December 2012 - 02:00 PM

I prefer Eve.

I'm not fussed on any of the middle names sorry.



#16 mad madam mim

Posted 02 December 2012 - 03:08 PM

I love both of these.
Evangeline Hope (MN being family name)
Evangeline Lorelei (feels a bit long winded)


#17 wish*upon*a*star

Posted 02 December 2012 - 03:21 PM

Evie Winter (I love Winter though)

#18 la di dah

Posted 02 December 2012 - 04:15 PM

I don't like Evie as a full name. I would go either Eve or Evangeline. I like Evangeline a lot for its sound, though it's too Christian to really make our list in real life.

Eve is nice because it doesn't have the cutesy quality of Evie and is more uncommon than Ava/Eva.

Evangeline Hope is really pretty. My fave. Eve Lorelei would be second favourite.

I also really like Evanthe/Evanthia but it's kind of oddball compared to Eve/Evangeline which are more familiar.

I like your husband's favourite 'Evangeline Winter'.  It pairs beautifully with Harper, they're both very strong yet feminine names.

You have great taste!

Evie winter is top of our girls list at the moment so that would be my pick. I don't really like evangeline though.
