    I've never heard Evelyn pronounced Eve-Lyn nor Ever-Lyn.
    I'm from Canada and I've only ever heard it "ev-uh-lyn" (or with the first two syllables combined, almost like "ev-lyn"- always with a short E sound at the start.

    I say Eh-va-lyn and am in the U.S. (Texas). It is definitely pronounced differently here than Ever-lyn

    I think I am learning to speak with a British accent thanks to Nameberry. Lol. I am learning so much about the accent just from name pronunciation!

    From ever to Harry, to Paris and carrot! lol

    uh, none of the above, I'm from the U.S. and every single Evelyn I've met says it like Ev-uh-lyn, maybe when said really fast it sounds like Ev-lynn,...
