    Evanthe...

    I just realised I've been posting here and there for a couple weeks now but haven't mentioned my situation. I'm not TTC just a mid-twenties name-lover who has found her partner for life and starting to think about the future!

    At the moment I am in love with the name Evanthe. (ee-VAN-thee).

    Do you think people will automatically jump to the nn Eve or Eva? I don't dislike either, but I'd prefer something a little less common. I like Vanthie, or maybe Thea, do you think those could work? Any alternatives?

    My favourite combo I've come up with so far is Evanthe Luna Valentine - it contains everything I love in a name, uncommon yet familiar, repeated letters and sounds, decidedly feminine, yet not too frilly, and sounds like she's the main character in her story.

    What do you think? Honest opinions, positive or negative!

    I also have:

    Evanthe Valentina Lune
    Evanthe Fauna Elowen or Evanthe Elowen Fawn

    Can you come up with any alternatives (using my favourites list or adding your own)?

    Thanks in advance!

    I love, love love Evanthe, and Evanthe Luna Valentine is perfect. I would use nn Thea.

    I've always loved Evanthe, and although I do like the nn Eve, I hadn't thought of Thea! Thea is adorable and such a cute nickname. Im not a fan of Vanthie, all I hear is a vehicle. Also, Evanthe Luna Valentine is stunning and a gorgeous name. My next pick would be Evanthe Fauna Elowen. I think Valentina/Valentine is just perfect for Evanthe and I wouldn't change it

    Have you thought of:
    Evanthe Valentina Wren? (I tried to find repeating letters and that sounded decidedly feminine, and in my opinion, Wren fits.)

    Lovely names

    It is great to hear that there is support for Evanthe. I'm really warming to Thea as a nickname, even though Eve or Eva feels more natural.

    featheredwings, I like your suggestion of Evanthe Valentina Wren, though I still prefer Evanthe Luna Valentine.
