    Another US-ian with the ehv uh lyn pronunciation. I voted for 'other' above (voted before reading the accent issues mentioned in the comments.)

    I'm from the U.S. I voted other pronunciation. Evelyn is my Grammy's name and we have always said Eh-Vul-Lin I absolutly hate when people mess it up. Eve-lyn just makes it sounds Evil and there is no R in Evelyn at all. /end rant

    I say 'eveh-lin' which is closest to 'ever-lyn' from the options provided.
