I am thinking about using this name for my son, I love its simplicity and the fact that it's not too common. My other options are Matthew (but not keen on Matt) or Thomas (don't love Tom). The middle name will be James. Can I get your thoughts on the name, is it likely to date? What do you imagine an Evan to be like? tia.

I think it's lovely, really strong name! And the only famous Evan I can think of is Evan Dando and he is really cool smile our son who's 3 is called Ewan, similar and we get lots of compliments on it, we loved that it was a bit different but not too out there. Good luck deciding x

I like Evan James, very nice.

I love it & much prefer it to Matthew & Thomas. Evan James sounds lovely. I know 2 little Evans. One is a baby & the other is an adorable, dark curly haired little 3 year old.

I don't know any and think it's lovely.

Evan James is a fantastic name.

Good name.
Reminds me of the guy on news night but he’s not sufficiently famous to make that an issue and he’s pretty cool anyway

Yes, Evan James. I know one, who's 6 years old.

Much much much prefer Matthew although Evan is quite nice too. I think Matthew is a stronger name

Love Evan, (also like Matthew and Thomas).

JoshGrobansFurryHamster Sat 21-Oct-17 13:25:41

I have a three year old, blonde haired, blue eyed Evan and I love it wink

He’s the only little Evan I know - it’s a strong name, no bad nicknames or shortenings, easy to pronounce and for the name snobs hmm Dr Evan sounds 100% haha

Evan Davies who presents Newsnight. I like it.

Annabelle4 Sat 21-Oct-17 14:24:03

I like it, but think it sounds a little soft, or dare I say 'feminine'.

I only know one, he's 10

BikeRunSki Sat 21-Oct-17 14:24:22

I like it. I know 2, one who must be in his mid 60s and one who is 9. The younger one is Evan James, and known as “Ev” to his mates.

I had a fling with an American guy called Evan. Nothing soft or feminine about that man!

<fans self>

My grandad's name but unfortunately we couldn't use it due to another name in the family. I love it.

MOLLY17 Sat 21-Oct-17 17:20:47

That's the name i have planned. Both first and second. What area do you live in as wondering how how popular it might be when he starts school smile

AnyaMoondial Sat 21-Oct-17 18:27:27

Love it.

Looserwoman Sat 21-Oct-17 19:43:36

Love it. Only know one aged 11.

Evanna13 Sat 21-Oct-17 20:40:00

Thanks for all the positive replies, it is something which has been floating around in my head so it's really nice to hear other people's thoughts. MOLLY17 I am in the north west, I don't think it's very popular here.

FeralBeryl Sat 21-Oct-17 23:36:22
