Nm issue

We like the name [name]Evelyn[/name] as a girls name option but do not like the Nickname [name]Evie[/name] but we really like [name]Eve[/name].
We would most likely call her [name]Evelyn[/name] most of the time ( the eve- lin pronunciation), but use [name]Eve[/name] for short every now and again.
[name]Do[/name] you think we would have issue with people calling her [name]Evie[/name] for short as I may have to dismiss this name if that is highly likely.

If I met a little [name]Evelyn[/name], I would call her just that. [name]Evie[/name] was never an automatic nickname to me.

I don’t like the [name]Eve[/name]-[name]Lyn[/name] pron. but I think that little [name]Evelyn[/name] could go by [name]Eve[/name] with no problems. I think [name]Evie[/name] is yucky too.

I think you’ll run into more problems with the [name]Eve[/name]-lyn pronunciation than with the [name]Evie[/name] nickname. I don’t think [name]Evie[/name] is automatic or unavoidable. I do think that most people will pronounce the name Ev-uh-lyn though, at least in the US (not sure where you are).

i live in the UK and here pretty much everyone pronounces it [name]Eve[/name]-lin so i don’t think we will have any pronunciation problems i don’t mind which way its pronounced though i agree that the [name]Ever[/name]-lin pronunciation is less likely to get [name]Evie[/name] nm. I think that by [name]Evie[/name] now being a popular name on its own perhaps makes things easier on the [name]Eve[/name]-lin pronunciation if you see what i mean.

I do see what you mean - if the [name]Eve[/name]-lin pronunciation is common and [name]Evie[/name] itself is more common, then it makes it more likely that your [name]Evelyn[/name] might be shortened to [name]Evie[/name]. But if you like [name]Eve[/name] and intend to use that short form yourself every so often then I don’t think it’s a problem. I don’t know that people would insist on calling her [name]Evie[/name] when you clearly call her [name]Eve[/name] or [name]Evelyn[/name]. But if the sound of [name]Evie[/name] just grates on your nerves then it might be better to skip it and avoid the problem. I feel the same way about lots of names - like [name]Douglas[/name], I think is very, very handsome but I could not stand the thought of referring to my son/hearing him called [name]Doug[/name]!
