    It's not really my cup of tea, however if you like it and want to use it, then go for it. I do think there are several feminine options that can be used to honor the name Evans (which have already been suggested). My preference would be Eva/Evia/Evie for a girl, but it's your future daughter

    Absolutely not. It's a boys' name. As a middle it would be fine.

    Matilda Sailor or Faye Matilda | Sylvie Winifred or Simon Atlas | Atlas Dov or Alice Violetta | Lucien Wilde or Lucinda Jane | Jane Lucinda or Jack Marlowe | Marlowe Charles or Roscoe Thomas | Charles ' Charlie' Wallace or Marigold 'Maggie' Wynn | Eloise Lily or Elliot Darwin | Iris Cordelia or Thea Marina | Jasper Augustus or Juniper 'June' Lovelace | Julian Felix or Judah 'Jude' Reeve

    Just a grad student dreaming ahead...

    Evans is possessive.
    Evans on a girl just makes me think that she's property of an Evan. Dislike. It's self-defeatingly sexist in all planes.

    As a middle, it's fair game since it's a family name. I'd prefere a variant, as it's more creative and personal: Evania, Evanna, Evangeline even.
    I completely agree.

    If we'd had boys the list was: Godfrey, Seamus, Alexander, Michael, Felix, Peter, Ignatius & Sebastian.

    If you drop the S, I like Evan for a girl. It is actually very pretty sounding, and I feel like it works perfectly well for a unisex name. Especially if you pair it with a classic "girl" name for the middle.

    (Worth noting that I could be a little biased about my above opinion because I lost a (male) friend named Evan, and pretty much think it is a wonderful name regardless of gender now.)
