Would you assume an Evangeline was Christian?
Evangeline is one of my all-time favourites, but recently I'm wondering if you think it's *too* religious sounding.
I know that it's actual history is not religiously-tied (as far as I'm aware it was invented by poet Henry Longfellow), but I feel that because it's so similar to 'Evangelism' it does sound very Christian. It sort of bothers me that she would have a name that most would assume was Christian. Not that I am anti-Christianity or anything, it's just that my children will definitely be raised Agnostic (with the freedom/opportunities to choose their own religion [or lack of] if they decide to) and I would hate for people to constantly tie my daughter to a certain religion.
What do you think? To a non-name-nerd, would Evangeline seem very Christian?
I might just be over thinking this because it's an especially touchy subject for me and it's a really beautiful name anyway....much loved / make my heart flutter;
