And we will call her Evie for short. Cute or too much of an old woman's name?
confused

Great name.

This exact combination was on my list- love it

Old lady's name!

I love Audrey not too keen on Evelyn. Evie is a little overused shall we say? Audrey Eve goes well.I prefer single sylable [sp?!] middle names.

In all honesty...? The world officially has enough Evies. wink

Audrey Evelyn, on the other hand, is lovely.

Love Evelyn Audrey however isnt it pronounce ever-lin? Sorry, just seems odd to get Evie from that and think Ever would be a better, more natural and more unique NN. Not that you can particularly control NNs.

It can be pronounced Eve-lyn, although that's less common.

In any case, Evie is a common shortening for Evelyn (and extraordinarily popular).

But wouldn't Ever just sound like a Cockney saying Heather?!wink

Depends if you are anywhere near London. Where I am it wouldnt.

Dd2s name is Evelyn, I have loved it for years and never ever met another. Only upon joining MN did I learn how apparently 'over used' it is. sad DH calls her Evie so I guess that makes us even more common. Still never met another in RL though.

OP your combination is beautiful.

Lovely but agree that Audrey Evelyn is even better!

I like the names, but should point out there are a ton of "Evie"s out there.

Ruprekt Fri 29-Mar-13 22:01:24

Is she 55?

Thought not.

Both names are so dreary imho.

Genre of Barbara, Susan, Audrey, Evelyn, Dorothy, Anne etc

So many pretty names out there.

My initial thought was "what gender is this baby?". I thought it was an inter-war multi-gender type of name.

HaDeHaDeHa Fri 29-Mar-13 22:05:08

Perhaps "multi-gender" isn't quite the right term (!) but hopefully you know what I mean!

I may also be confusing Audrey aiwth Aubrey but if I can so might anyone else.

For a boy, maybe. For a girl, not so much.

I have to say that when I read the thread title I wasn't sure if the baby was boy or a girl.

Evelyn is usually used as a girl's name, but it used to be a common boys name, ( Evelyn Waugh) and audrey is also unisex name.

So personally I wouldn't put them together.

I love it!

Evie is common? I've never in my life met an Evie. confused

EeyoresGloomyPlace Sun 31-Mar-13 16:03:29

crackerjack me neither (except my own!). Maybe it depends where you live? Use the name, its lovely smile

VodIsGod Sun 31-Mar-13 18:54:24

I know two girls aged under 5 called Evelyn, shortened to Evie... And I know countless other girls called Eve, Eva, Ava zzzzzZzzzzz

Floralnomad Sun 31-Mar-13 18:58:45

Audrey is a horrible ,dowdy name .Evelyn is lovely and I only know one Evie as well.

lottiegarbanzo Sun 31-Mar-13 19:36:30

Lovely, that way around.

Evie is very popular amongst the under fives but rarely from Evelyn I think.
