    Am I pronouncing this name right? Evelina

    Eh-vuh-lee-nuh...is this the correct pronunciation? I just came across this while searching other names. I think it is very pretty, if this is the correct way.

    That's how I say it. I have a friend who wants to name her first daughter Evelyna. She would have said it the same way. Personally, I think Evelina is so much more appealing.

    I knew a Polish woman with this name,granted spelt Ewelina (w's pronounced like v's in Polish). She said Ev-uh-lee-na so I assume that's the right way. Always thought it was lovely said that way.
    Think it sounds terrible any other way though.
