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.

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

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.

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.

Tough one - both simple, elegant and gorgeous imo . Rose might be a touch more classic and romantic sounding but I'd give the edge to Eve - it's one of the the most underused of the "Ev" names (so I definitely wouldn't use very popular Evie, Eva or Evelyn if you like Eve as much), plus has a kind of cool "vibe" too as it's a palindrome and used in a lot of Sci- Fi/Fantasy novels and films (because it means "life" and Eve is thought of as the first woman etc).
