    I'm in Canada and I pronounce Evelyn as "ev-uh-lyn" (the middle syllable "uh" is said quite quickly). I've heard that some in Britain pronounce it "eve-lyn" (eg. MALE author Evelyn Waugh).
    All the best,

    Your poll really confused me! So I couldn't vote. I thought "who in their right mind would pronounce Evelyn with an R in it? There is no R!!!" Lol, reading the comments section kind of cleared it up for me though. I pronounce it EHV-ah-lyn and I am from Canada. I also pronounce ever with a the r very clearly pronounced!

    I've only ever heard it pronounced "EH-ve-lin". Never with an R sound. I'm from the US, Tennessee.

    Wow, aren't accents fun. I'm British, but I'm Northern Irish, not English, so I say my Rs as consonants, not vowels. I say EV'uh-lin, but would never even think of attempting to write the first syllable as 'ever'.

    If it's meant as a male name however, then I say EVE-lin.
