Evalina (know a girl with this name)

Why don't you give her a first name beginning with E and the middle beginning with V?

Then her initials are EV, pronounced Evie!

Oh and I think Evangeline is very pretty too,

Could be an version of Eve.

I know a Kate who was always known as Katie when she was younger. Her mum and sister still call her Katie.

If you are only going to call her Evie then name her Evie.

Call who Evie, Mutt?

My DD is Evelyn, and we thought we'd be shortening to Evie, but she's nearly four now and nobody calls her Evie (she doesn't really like it)
So, if you want to use Evie, call her Evie

Eveline, Evaline (know one of each, both pronounced Eeve - lin)

Genevieve, Evangeline, Eve.

Sounding similar but a bit more distinctive imo is Hebe.

Lol! No, there's no baby, just pontificating!

Personally I don't like nicknames as full names, so if you have any suggestions as to what Evie could be short for I'd beinterested to hear them, thanks.

I prefer Evie on it's own and see it as a short/shortened name not a nickname (which I would see as Shaz, Dazza etc) It is far more common as a short name. BUT I do like Evelyn and Evangeline especially, very good names which can become Evie and Eve.

I would use Evie as a nickname for Eve, rather than a shortening of a longer name.

The longer names I would think of are Evangeline and Genevieve.

nicvkname for eve

The Welsh name Guinevere (only spelled differently) is shortened to Evie.

My DD (15 weeks) is Evie so obviously I love it

DS1 already calls her Eve, whereas DS2 (5), calls her Eviebelle Tinkerbelle
