Evan Origin and Meaning

The name Evan is both a boy's name and a girl's name of Welsh origin meaning "the Lord is gracious".
Evan is a boys' favorite that has been given the feminine touch by talented actress Evan Rachel Wood. If you want to move beyond Eva and Evelyn and like unisex names, this may be a good bet for you (though like Evan Rachel Wood, you may want a feminine name in the middle name position to clarify matters). Evanna is also another alternative.
