Beverly/ Waverly With Nickname Eve or Evie?

I like the names [name_f]Beverly[/name_f] and [name_u]Waverly[/name_u] but are the nns [name_f]Eve[/name_f] or [name_f]Evie[/name_f] a stretch? [name_f]Beverly[/name_f] has “eve” and [name_u]Waverly[/name_u] is just a letter off. If it’s too off you could just call them [name_f]Bev[/name_f], Bevy, Wave, or Wavey.
Also, which do you like more, [name_f]Beverly[/name_f] or [name_u]Waverly[/name_u]?

Without a doubt, I prefer [name_f]Beverly[/name_f]!

I prefer [name_f]Beverly[/name_f]…I think you could get away with [name_f]Eve[/name_f] as a nn but not sure due to the “eve” part in the middle of [name_f]Beverly[/name_f] being pronounced differently - “ev” instead of “eve”.

I have the same problem with [name_f]Avalon[/name_f]. It is a name I love and am considering for current bump, but as it’s 3 syllable I’d want to be able to shorten it to [name_f]Ava[/name_f] sometimes. Except the first 3 letters are pronounced “a-vah”, not “ay-vah”…so not sure if i can get away with it

I think it’s too much of a stretch to use [name_f]Eve[/name_f]/[name_f]Evie[/name_f] as a nn for either name. With [name_f]Beverly[/name_f] you could also use [name_u]Ever[/name_u] or [name_u]Everly[/name_u] as a nn as well. I personally prefer [name_u]Waverly[/name_u]. [name_m]Way[/name_m] could be a cute nn!

@hannahbanana23, I also think [name_f]Ava[/name_f] (ay-vuh) is too much of a stretch as a nn for [name_f]Avalon[/name_f], although the letters are there, they aren’t (as you already noted) pronounced the same way, but you could still call her [name_f]Ava[/name_f] (ah-vuh) spelled the same way or [name_u]Avi[/name_u] (ah-vee)

[name_u]Ever[/name_u] is a cute nickname as an alternative to [name_f]Eve[/name_f].

Yes, I think you’re right about [name_f]Ava[/name_f] not being suitable as a nn for [name_f]Avalon[/name_f]…[name_u]Avi[/name_u] is sweet but I just don’t find it as beautiful as [name_f]Ava[/name_f] :frowning:

I like [name_u]Waverly[/name_u] much more, and [name_f]Ave[/name_f] (ayv) could be nice nickname!

[name_u]Waverly[/name_u] over [name_f]Beverly[/name_f] hands down!!! The latter sounds rather outdated to me. I’m also not a fan of the nn [name_f]Bev[/name_f].
