Hi,
I am currently pregnant with our second baby and we have just found out its a little girl.  Hubby and I love the name Evelyn, but just not sure on a middle name.  I would like a one syllable name I think. Her older brother is William Christopher so I guess we like quite traditional names.
So far I have thought ofEvie MayEvie GraceEvelyn Beth??
Please help with other suggestions and with what is your favourite.
Thanks ladies  biggrin.gif

Is Evie another first name option or do you mean Evie as a nickname to Evelyn? I love Evie as a nickname to Eve or Eva but I don't like Evelyn one bit. I like Evie Grace most from those combos. I think Evie should have a longer middle name but Evelyn is fine with 1 syllable.

Suggestions:
William Christopher and Evie Celeste
William Christopher and Evie Sophia
William Christopher and Evie Adelaide
William Christopher and Evie Amelia
William Christopher and Evie Scarlett
William Christopher and Evie Claire
William Christopher and Evie Zara
William Christopher and Evie Hannah
William Christopher and Evie Pearl
William Christopher and Evie Jane
William Christopher and Evie Lucinda
William Christopher and Evie Annabelle

William Christopher and Evelyn Kate
William Christopher and Evelyn Tess
William Christopher and Evelyn Fern
William Christopher and Evelyn Claire
William Christopher and Evelyn Jade
William Christopher and Evelyn Jane
William Christopher and Evelyn Joan
William Christopher and Evelyn Alice
William Christopher and Evelyn Rose
William Christopher and Evelyn Pearl
William Christopher and Evelyn Anne
William Christopher and Evelyn Faith
William Christopher and Evelyn Hope
William Christopher and Evelyn Fleur
William Christopher and Evelyn Maeve

My grandmother is Ruby Evelyn, she hates her name and made all her grandchildren promise they wouldn't name their kids after her.

I think Evelyn could carry a much bigger middle name such as:


Evelyn Margaret
Evelyn Meribel
Evelyn Miranda
Evelyn Matilda

I am a big believer in having a middle name which has some meaning and not just because it flows well ie a family name, same middle name as mother/great aunt, name you have always loved but can't use, a name of a great friend, name which conjures up a memory, favourite flower etc.

Having said that I think one/two syllable names go well with Evelyn.

Evelyn with a nn of Evie is seriously sweet in my books, a good 'whole of life' name.

What about:
Evelyn (Evie) June
Evelyn (Evie) Rose

Evelyn Clare
Evelyn Jade

I think something classic will work as a middle name and I like one syllable middle names because then I'd call her Evie..'name'

Evelyn Joy
Evelyn Hope
Evelyn Rose

First common denominators off my list.

ooh and I do like Evelyn Kate. original.gif
