Honestly, I really don't like this name. I think it sounds made up, especially for a full name and not just a nickname. That's just my opinion though, I don't mean to offend anyone.

Carolinekalmes Says:


Cute but almost too cute for me. I think of the Pokémon. I prefer Edie! (Ee-dee) it has the same cute feel but a bit stronger feel and also very vintage.

NameLover 11 Says:


I love this name, but pronounced eh-vee. I would probably use Evangeline as a full name.

irishdancer428 Says:


My name is Evie pronounced ehvvee, and my real name is Evelyn, too! I like my Evie better because the name is said Evelyn (evvelyn) , and I don't want to be called Evil, and I didn't like the reference to Pokemon

ladimon Says:


All I can think is "Pokemon", even though the spelling is different. It is a cute name though.

georgiaO Says:


Love love LOVE Pokemon... so this name is cute.

kitchi1 Says:


That's a good idea.

kitchi1 Says:


I met a young girl named Evie yesterday, and it was just a breath of fresh air. I assume it was short for was pronounced evv-ee, not ee-vee. My first thought was Evelyn. I am really loving it.

Zelliew Says:


So do I

GuineapigGirl15 Says:


I love the names Evie,Eve,and Eva.Especially Evie.

EvaThyssen Says:


Too cutesy. It's a great nickame though.

indiefendi2 Says:


Evie is cute as a nickname at best. But not as a full name. It sounds like a Barbie doll. Eve is much more refined, amazing how one letter can make a huge difference.

jojobabyberry Says:


I think it's adorable but really prefer Evie as nickname.

Haleydubs Says:


I'm sure that when a child born today is entering the workforce, Evie will look plenty mature and sophisticated next to little Khayleigh, Camryn, and the rest of the kids with made up spellings.

Ashley Preston Says:


We named our daughter Evelyn Rose on her birth certificate but call her Evie. That way she has another option as a professional if she chooses.

Tay2thestars Says:


I love Evie, but only when said EE-vie, like the Pokemon. It's fun, and cutesy, but somehow, I think it could work on its own. I also like it as a nickname for Genevieve.

Alltheprettynames Says:


This name sounds so vivacious to me. I just adore it! Not sure how it would work on an adult in a professional role but I'm sure the right person could still make it work for them.
