So after many months of debate DH and I have got a shortlist for DD due in 3 weeks. Eva is top of the list but we have been warned off it due to popularity. We never wanted a top 10 name and on last ONS stats it was 26.

So it would be great to get a feel for how popular it really is now. How many do you know, what age are they and what area do you live in?

Im in Greater Manchester I know 1 who is nearly 2 I think and its my daughters middle name (we chose it after I went into labour on Christmas eve)
I think it's a lovely name. My mum wanted to call my sister Eva, but she already had an Adam.

Several. And some Ava's too.

Only 1. And she's lovely.

I know 2 Ava's (about 2 & 4)
Also know a Evelyn known as Evie aged 7.
The only Eva I know is mine but she's an Evangeline (6) but its sometimes shortened to Eva.

BTW I live in the west midlands.

I know lots of Evies but only one Eva.

LadySharrowOfGolter Tue 07-Jul-15 19:48:05

One, not in UK.

Treesandbees Tue 07-Jul-15 19:55:13

This is making me feel better! Thanks for the replies so far!

I know two, both lovely. I prefer it a little more to Ava and Evie, which there are about ten of each all under 5 locally.

An Ava, and Evie, and an Evangeline or two

The only Eva I know is my 76 year old mum

sweetpeame Tue 07-Jul-15 22:09:26

I'm in north London and only know one, she's about 2 years old. If you like it, go for it.

None. Personally, but everywhere I go I hear mums shouting. Eva Evie Ava, so yes very over used. If that bothers you.

Twistedheartache Wed 08-Jul-15 10:32:10

West London - 2 under 6 months plus an Evie at dd1's nursery

Seffina Wed 08-Jul-15 10:33:06

1 Eva, 1 Ava (but not locally), lots and lots of Evies.

I'm in the NW.

JillBYeats Wed 08-Jul-15 10:34:52

3 Eva's
3 Aoibhean's (Aveen)
1 Evie
2 Ava's

In Ireland (rural too)

I'd say it's quite popular though really trying to avoid popular names is difficult. I named my now teen DD a fairly unusual name at the time - it is now in the top 10. She has never met another around her age but there are several at the playschool where I work.

2 x Eva
1 x Eve
3 x Evie
2 x Ava

aged between 1 and 6

They're nice names though.
