I know one, they mostly stick to her name, can't remember her nickname but I know it's not Evie.

Grand total of none.

Umpteen here in SW London

Lots. Home Counties.

Not many here but it is my DD!
Family call her Evie, we call her Evelyn. When she's older I quite like Vie as a nickname or there's a nice shortened version of her middle name.
But tbh her nickname will be whatever she prefers!

I should add Yorkshire!

I know two adults. They are known as Ev and Eve.

Just one here (east midlands). She’s my daughter’s friend, they’re in year 2. So 6/7 years old. Don’t think she has a nickname, she’s always Evelyn.

The one from Pearl Harbour

Off the top of my head around 20
This generations sarah / Becky / chloe or Megan etc
Don't go there it's ubiquitous

5, all over 50, all only go by full name.

I suppose Eve would be a shortened version, maybe Eva at a push?

One, back when I lived in Cambridgeshire. She’s about...33 now? And we called her Ev.

Watto1 Fri 26-Oct-18 20:26:57

Just one. She's 98!

ThunderInMyHeart Fri 26-Oct-18 20:32:56

One - she’s mid 30s. Love the name

Dinosaursdontgrowontrees Fri 26-Oct-18 20:38:40

I have one who is 6. I know only one other who is about 2. My dd is the only Evelyn in her school. People shorten it to Evie sometimes but I don’t mind that.
I obviously think it’s a gorgeous name, we get lots of comments from people about what a lovely name it is too.

Dinosaursdontgrowontrees Fri 26-Oct-18 20:39:09

I’m in London btw

user1486076969 Fri 26-Oct-18 20:39:55

None, ever...

UbercornsGoggles Fri 26-Oct-18 20:41:04

Two under 5 (and I don't know many kids). Both shortened to Evie.

Escolar Fri 26-Oct-18 20:44:05

I know one Evelyn (unshortened), two Evies (presume short for Evelyn), two Eves and two Avas.

Escolar Fri 26-Oct-18 20:44:34

All primary age btw.

Name. She’s lovely
