    Eveline

    This is another Irish name I found today. Its prn as Ev-ah-Leen. How would you prn it? Would it have difficulty? I really love it, and it's meaning. Thoughts?

    LOVE Eveline! I always figured it was more French than Irish, but I still think it's really cool. It's a feminine form of Evelyn, which has masculine origins. I prefer Eveline/Evelina for that reason. I think my personal preference is toward Evelina, but I do like Eveline a lot! I like some of your other choices with Annabel, Sullivan, and Owen, though.

    Oh, and I automatically say it as ev-ah-leen...

    Good luck!

    Good to know you prn it the same! Yes, Evelina is Spanish I believe? But on babynamesofireland.com Eveline is listed as an anglicized form of the Irish name. I think it has other origins, too. I agree, I prefer it to Evelyn.

    Which others do you prefer with my sibset? My list:
    Fiona
    Maeve
    Neve
    Violet
    Iris
    Clara
    Vivienne
    Eveline

    I like Violet and Clara better with your kids, although neither is especially Irish, I don't think, if that's what you're going for. Didn't you used to have Vivienne, Imogen, and Tallulah on your list, as well? I like all of those with Annabel, Sullivan, and Owen more, personally. Especially Imogen and Violet!
