Evanna and Evangeline
How would you pronounce the names Evanna and Evangeline?
When I first saw the name Evanna, I thought the pronunciation was "eh-VAN-nuh" (first syllable similar to Eliza and Emma) but I think the pronunciation "ee-van-nuh" (like Eve and Ivana) is more common? Do you pronounce Evangeline in a similar way?
I pronounce both with the 'eh' beginning as oppose to 'ee' - however I'm from Australia so that may make a difference!
I, too, pronounce both names with an 'eh' beginning.
Evanna sounds a bit harsh to my ears, like I might have misheard Savannah...
For Evanna, I would say ee-VON-uh, for Evangeline it would have the same "ee" beginning, like Eve.
Evanna would be ee-VON-uh
Evangeline is ee-VAN-juh-leen.
I would say ee-VAH-nuh and ee-VAN-jeh-leen.
I could see ee-VAN-ah though, like eve+anna.
I pronounce both names with an "ee" sound in front rather than an "eh".
I would pronounce both as "eh-VAN-nuh" and "eh-VAN-gel-ine."
Maybe the difference in pronunciation is regional? I'm from the mid-atlantic U.S., if that helps :)
