The woman I know named Reva is Jewish and told me Reva is a variant on Rebecca.

We named our daughter Reva. We have only had positive responses from people as it fits right in with the Emma/Ella/Eva type names that are popular now is different enough to stand out and has nostalgia for the older generations (although they are more used to Riva as a spelling). We call her "Reevee" or "Reev" to answer the nickname question.

I think so! Any name with "ev" in it seems appropriate to extend into "Evie", in my opinion :)

hughesscholar Says:


would Evie be an appropriate nickname???
