    Opinions Please

    Hi Berries,

    One of my current name crushes is Evie, my question is, is it strong enough to stand on it's own as a first name or should it be a nickname for a longer name?

    Thanks!

    My son has an Evie in his class, her full name is Evian. I actually hate Evian but think Evelyn is a more appropriate name. Evie is a nickname.

    I think it should be a nickname. It can even be a nickname for something short, like Eve or Eva- I just think Evie is too childish sounding on its own. Some suggestions:
    Eve
    Eva
    Evelyn
    Genevieve
    Eveline
    Evelina
    Evangeline
    Evadne
    Neva
    Geneva

    I know there are plenty of Evies out there with no formal first name, but I'm a big believer in putting a formal first name on a birth certificate and using a nickname if you wish. There are some beautiful names that could use Evie as a nickname. Several have been mentioned above, but my personal favourites are Eva, Evangeline and Evelyn. I agree with Daisy, Evie is quite a childish name and mightn't sound very grown up on an adult.

    Ditto for me! Would rather have the best of both worlds. Genevieve or Evelyn would be my favorite way to get to Evie.

    Sylvie might be another option.
