    My daughter's name is Evyenia. My husband is Greek and his Great Aunt's name is Evyenia. Of course, it is spelled differently in Greece! When we decided to name our daughter this, we tried to spell it like it sounds (knowing that Eugenia is the correct way to translate the name), but we did not like the translation so Evyenia is the spelling we came up with. The VY is a diphthong and the correct pronunciation is Ev-ye-nee-a. We do call her Evy for short! It's a beautiful name!

    I've heard the name before as well, but I never knew how it was spelled. I like the sound, but the spelling is to complex for me to consider it on my list.
