Which do you prefer for a girl?
Starlightstarbright1 · 22/11/2021 06:51
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.

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

@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
DontKnowWhatToThink7 · 22/11/2021 09:34
I love Eve
Skeumorph · 22/11/2021 09:54
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.
FoggySpecs · 22/11/2021 15:58
Just Eve. Beautiful.
RosieRoww · 22/11/2021 16:00
Eva Rose sounds nice.
resm · 22/11/2021 16:08
Eve, but like both.
EurghCobwebs · 22/11/2021 16:30
Eva Rose for short?
danascully96 · 22/11/2021 18:33
@EurghCobwebs Evangeline “Eva” Rose is lovely! Thank you ❤️
DramaAlpaca · 22/11/2021 20:23
Love both, but Rose just takes first place.
nitsandwormsdodger · 22/11/2021 20:27
Rose is getting popular it’s the new Ella Isla , lovely , but she won’t be the only one in the class

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).
