    And James means "supplanter" and Leah means "weary" and Cameron means "crooked nose".

    Meanings only go so far.

    No way! It's a literary name. Evangelicals might not read enough beyond the Bible to realize it though. (I was raised as one...I speak from experience).

    Yes, I would assume the parents were Christian. I know two Evangelines-- one is in her twenties and was homeschooled by her Christian parents, the other is a toddler and the daughter of a Jewish poetry professor who likes Longfellow. I think the latter's mother is Christian though and she is probably being raised Christian/Protestant.

    So, it's a mixed bag, but I would assume Evangelical first.

    I don't think it's "too Christian" I like it and I think it's cute. Evie and Angie are adorable too.

    Thank you! My name's Leah and I'm super hyper... it also means patient which I am most definitely not.
