I love Eve. My ds would have been Eve is he was a girl.
Both are lovely though

I love Eve. I wanted it as a first name but we settled on it for a middle name as DH wasn’t as keen.

Rose, beautiful

Eve. Rose is lovely too though.

How about Eva as a first name with Rose as a middle name? I know you asked about Eve but Eva flows with Rose..?

Oh, I love Eva! Thank you, @7catsisnotenough star

@danascully96 you're very welcome 😊 Good luck with your baby, do let us know when she's arrived and you have chosen her name 💐

Rose. If you add up all the Ev- names in the top hundred (Evie, Evelyn and Eva) then they are more popular than Olivia.

Of the two, Eve, but I dislike Eva and Evelyn, and there are so many Evies etc so I wouldn't use it

Rose is nice but Rosie is very popular

Eva Rose will be yet another Eva Rose and the combination is unimaginative

This is difficult as I adore both of these. I’m going to say Eve as a first as it’s the longest standing favourite on my list, and I feel it’s more versatile - Rose is very feminine. I also prefer Evie as a pet form (have an irrational dislike of Rosie despite loving Rose). You can’t go wrong though, both are beautiful - extremely tough choice.

Both nice but prefer Rose

I love Eve

Skeumorph Mon 22-Nov-21 09:54:06

They are both ok but just too popular.

I love Eva but the playground is a sea of Eve/Evie/Evelyn’s at the minute and Rose is one of the default middle names for girls currently. Both are massively popular.

Both are nice but I prefer Rose. I prefer Eve to Eva simply because I know a lot of little Evas.

Eve! I've always liked it and it's nice to hear the simpler version instead of Evie for a change. I do like Rose too, and especially as a first name, where it's less often heard, but Eve has the edge for me.

Just Eve. Beautiful.

RosieRoww Mon 22-Nov-21 16:00:55

Eva Rose sounds nice.

resm Mon 22-Nov-21 16:08:32

Eve, but like both.

Evangeline Rose?

Eva Rose for short?

danascully96 Mon 22-Nov-21 18:33:53
