Evie Origin and Meaning

The name Evie is a girl's name of Hebrew origin meaning "life".

Evie was derived from Eve, which in turn comes from Chawwah, a Hebrew name related to the concept of life. Evie can be used as a nickname for any name that starts with Ev-, including Eva, Evelyn, and Evangeline, but also for names such as Genevieve and Maeve. Evie is typically pronounced with a long E sound, but a short E is also valid.

In the land of the nickname name, otherwise known as the UK, where diminutives like Freddie, Millie, Maisie, Alfie and Ollie are all the rage, Evie is a highly popular choice. In the US, she entered the popularity ranks in 2007 for the first time since 1941, appreciated for its energy and spunk.

Natalie Portman played an Evie in V for Vendetta and Rachel Weiss bore it in The Mummy.

Evie, of course, can stand on its own, but its diminutive origins put it firmly in the ranks of cute baby names

My dog is named Evie and I chose it for her because she is born on Christmas Eve. I was going to name her Eve, but I liked Evie better.

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.

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.

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

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

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

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
