    i would pronounce everett exactly like everest, minus the S sound. Near where i live Everett is a city. but maybe the city is pronounced differently than the name - either way, i wouldn't worry about the everest association at all.

    Everett is my top pick right now!
    My husband also says that it reminds him of Everest. If people make the association, I don't think it's a big deal. If anything, I like the association as it makes me think of words like strong, tall, and daring. I don't think that people are going to mix up the name with Everest -the "s" sound is very pronounced.

    Our son's name is Everest (which we LOVE) and people will frequently call him Everett bc it is more common.

    I don't think you will have a problem with Everest and Everett. You could give him a nickname if you wanted to minimize the confusion.

    I don't think it's much of a problem. I think people generally think of the name and the mountain as two separate things. I myself have never thought of the connection until you mentioned it! I just think It's a nice boys name

    Good luck!!
