    WDYT of Evra? Too "made up"?

    Last night I was thinking about my favorite names, in particular the name Ginevra which is one of our favorite middles right now. I was trying to figure out why I like it and I realized it's the "evra" part which makes sense since some of my other favorite names are very similar... Ezra, Evren, Evan, etc.

    I googled and couldn't find much for the name Evra other than a few yahoo answers posts. It's not on behindthename so I assume it's not a "legit" name but I still think it's pretty.

    I pronounce is ehv-ra. Just wondering what everyone else thinks... could it pass as a legitimate name or is it too "made up"?

    There's a French footballer named Patrice Evra. He was apparently born in Senegal, but I'm not sure if that lends any clues, but I couldn't find anything else on my google quest.
    I don't think people would really question Evra as a name because it sounds so familiar... you may get the side-eye about "What, did your Ortho Evra patch quit working or something?" though.

    Ah, I forgot about the BC patch called Ortho Evra. That may have just ruined it for me lol.

    lol I used to be pretty active on a football community site and his tag was "Patrice Ortho Evra"... I totally see the appeal, but it may not be a good choice.
