    I would never make the connection...I know Christians that are in know way Christian, nor are their parents.

    I've never, or would have, thought of Evangeline being tied up to Christianity. I think its fine, and a gorgeous name by the way.

    Ehh, my first thought was Uncle Tom's Cabin...the little girl (Eva)'s given name was Evangeline. I'm a Christian and it took me a couple minutes to make the "evangelist/ism" connection..and others have spoken along the same lines. That being said, the only Evangeline I know is the daughter of missionaries. The main reason they chose that name was because their other children have E names and so they wanted to continue the trend.

    I think it is a beautiful name. It has cute nn's, is long and so makes me think of a bright light, which is a sweet quality (being someone different, standing up for your beliefs instead of following the crowd, etc). I think with The Princess and the Frog, the name would be associated with the character

    This is one of the best points brought up in the entire thread.
