I’m vvv fussy w names.
First baby, a little girl. Due 16th September!
And the only name I adore, always have is Everly!
Everly Violet / Everly Rose / Everly Hope / Everly Lyla
Are all in the running, with Rose as mn being my favourite.
I think it’s so pretty, unusual but not ridiculous, or pretentious.
I like Ever or Ev as nn.
DP loves it too, as do the 2 friends I’ve told. Not gonna tell my mam and nan until she’s born as they are... v opinionated smile
So, did a quick google search of ‘Everly mumsnet’ and ummm, it seems 9/10 MNers hate it - despise it with passion in fact!
I am aware it is Beverly without B, Everly brothers etc... but is it rlly that bad?
And if it truly is horrific, any other suggestions?
I don’t like Evelyn. Prefer modern, unique names.

I like it, for all the same reasons you do.

I don't like it but it's just not my taste. Me and my DP love unusual names but even he pulled a face when he heard the name Everly at our dd's tumble tots group!

It’s a surname isn’t it?

Nice enough - I did always like the Everley Brothers.

But there are a whole bunch of them on YouTube/Instagram Mommy Blogs. Mostly Mennonites, so fairly inoffensive (if you're religious) but there are lots - will you be having the almost obligatory Kaeden or Jaxon next?

Love it!

If you like it then who cares what other people think? You can't please everyone. smile

Not keen but it’s not horrific. Better than Vulcan
