I like longer, frillier names so I would choose Evelina. I've used Evelina for a story before, NN Eva to distinguish her from her mother, also named Evelina, whom she was named after. You can definitely use both Evie and Eva as NNs. This allows you to use both the names you love instead of just one.~Love names, literature, royals and horses~ <3

I, too, much prefer Eva. It's gorgeous as is. Adding to it detracts from it, imo. Evelina would have spelling and pronunciation problems. I can see it being misspelled as Evalina, Evalena, Evaleena, etc. The pronunciation mix-ups could include "Eh-va-lai-na" vs. "Eh-va-lee-na" vs. "Ee-va-lee-na," etc.Mother of three teenagers: (1) Daniel Glen, (2) Timothy Austin, and (3) Rebecca Jane. All middle names honor family, with Jane used three generations in a row. (A second girl would have been Susanna Eve).
