Evelyn has always been my favorite name for a girl! What could you call her for short? Evi??? But is it weird to spell it that way if there is no "i" in Evelyn? I have a son named Riley, and we call him "Ri". But that makes sense because it is the first to letters in his name.
My daughter

I love this name...I named my daughter this. We call her Evie..Which is super cute for when she is a girl, but when she gets older she can have a wonderfully grown-up name in Evelyn.I love the way it sounds.
i love it.

triple twin girls
written by frogs are cute, April 26, 2008
My mother when she had me i was a twin. My twin was Evelyn-Mae and I was **********-Rae (its not that long.). My sisters nickname was Evin and now she's gonna be Tia Eva. The weird thing was Evelyn had twins: Aeropostalia and Hollystirre like the companies except spelled difrently (they were both girls). And now I will have twin girls! Weird, huh!
Talkin' about those companies, I'm gonna go buy some of that stuff tomorrow. They are the only kinds of clothes i wear.

Please don't pronounce my name 'E-V'
written by Evelyn, April 14, 2010
Hello my name is Evie! I love my name and so does everyone else. I was named after me grandmother Evelyn who passed away before I was born. She liked to be called Evie, so here I am. The problem is everyone, and I mean EVERYONE pronounces me name wrong! It is 'Ev (like the first part of Evelyn)-E (like the letter E.)And it really, REALLY upsets me when people call me 'E (like the letter E)-V (like the letter V) Which is another way you can pronounce it. But if you are going to pronounce it that way,spell it that way. Like Evy. Please respect the Evies out there! Lol!
