Evelina Origin and Meaning

The name Evelina is a girl's name of Latin origin meaning "desired; or water, island".

A popular name in the Middle Ages, Evelina was eclipsed by Evelyn in the last century, but has a chance at a well-deserved comeback now, fitting right in with the other Ev-names. Like Evelyn, it derives from the Norman name Aveline.
