Pretty but sounds slightly made up - Evelina looks more like a real name (I've never heard of the hospital).

Evelina is a real name. theres a girl at ds2 playgroup called it. Shes from eastern europe somewhere where apparently its as normal as say Sarah

Spelt Evelina it's fine - pretty.

Don't like it with an A, though.

I know two girls called Evelina, both Polish. Pretty.

Evalina and Evelina are both lovely! My mum is an Eveline so possibly bias

It's nice

but I didn't know it was a 'real' name

Evangeline is nice too (there's an actress, Evangeline Lilley)

Evelina is a novel by the magnificent Fanny Burney, a 17th century woman of letters (who, incidentally, underwent a mastectomy without an anaesthetic - and survived). I think spelling it Evalina looks wrong. Pretty name though.
