Everett is a statesmanlike, wintry New England name chosen by over a thousand parents each year. In the past three years, Everett shot up to Number 189, 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: its current Nameberry rank is 58..
Everett Hills is a character in Eugene O'Neill's drama Mourning Becomes Electra. George Clooney and Dermot Mulroney have both played Everetts in recent films; author John Irving named his youngest son Everett, and singer Isaac Hanson has an Everett as well.
