Considering this as a play on my grandmothers name Harriet nn Rhett. Wonder if I could add in the H for Everhett. We already have a little boy Rhett named after her. I like nn Evie and keeping with my unisex naming trend. I like the strong meaning as well. Emmett, Elliotte, Emersyn and Elowen are also contenders for a girl. But liking this option.

I just can't see Everett as a girls name, maybe because I had a great uncle named Everett. We also never pronounced it "ever ett" we said "ev ert". Which makes it even more unusable to me.

Maybe because its my last name and ive always seen it as very masculine, I just don't see it as a good unisex name. I love it but i'd only really use it as a middle name for boys. If you add an "E" at the end it would be like Jeannette or something.
