Everett is a statesmanlike, wintry New England name chosen by over a thousand parents each year. In the past three years, Everett shot up 106 spots to Number 214, a fashion leap that can be credited to its similarity to trendy girls' names such as Eva and Ava. Its high point was about a century ago, when Everett was a Top 100 name -- and it could get there again.
Everett Hills is a character in Eugene O'Neill's drama "Mourning Becomes Electra." Author John Irving named his youngest son Everett.
