The Ev- names

What do you guys think of these Ev- names?


What kind of boy do you see wearing these (i.e. “[name_u]Evan[/name_u] seems like a mellow guy” or “[name_u]Everett[/name_u] seems like a sophisticated guy”)? Are there other Ev- names you like?

I adore [name_u]Everett[/name_u] and Like [name_u]Evan[/name_u]. I am not too fond of Everton or [name_m]Everard[/name_m]. You might like [name_u]Everest[/name_u].

[name_u]Everett[/name_u] is one of my favorites - it just feels fresh and green and strong to me. Ev- in general has that feel to me, perhaps because of the association with evergreens and [name_u]Everest[/name_u]. [name_u]Evan[/name_u] is lovely, too. [name_m]Evander[/name_m] is another favorite of mine, but I probably wouldn’t be brave enough to give it as a first name - maybe as a middle, though!

Here are my thoughts:

[name_u]Evan[/name_u] - I don’t hate it, don’t love it. It seems a bit Mousy to me, like a bit of a meek man.
[name_u]Everett[/name_u] - This is growing on me. I never heard this name before joining nameberry. But this reminds me of a masculine but artsy man.
Everton - I’ve never heard of this one, but it’s in the Everton family. Not the worst choice, but not the best in my opinion.
[name_m]Everard[/name_m] - I don’t like this name. I think the multiple r’s are hard to pronounce.

Good luck!

[name_u]Evan[/name_u] is a bit boring to me, but nice.
[name_u]Love[/name_u] [name_u]Everett[/name_u] and [name_m]Evander[/name_m].
Not too fond of Everton or [name_m]Everard[/name_m], tho I could see the latter fitting into the ‘clunky cool’ or geek-chic categories.

[name_u]Evan[/name_u] is nice but not exciting.

[name_u]Everett[/name_u] is my dad’s, my grandpa’s and my great-grandpa’s middle name; it feels old and strong like an oak tree.

[name_m]Everard[/name_m] is the original form of [name_u]Everett[/name_u] and feels like it fits right in with other ancient names.

Everton is nice if it’s honoring a family member.

I tend to agree with what I’ve read so far, but I’m finding these replies interesting! Keep 'em coming!

[name_u]Evan[/name_u] and [name_u]Everett[/name_u] seem run of the mill.
Everton and [name_m]Everard[/name_m] sound hoity toity (if you’re like me that’s not a negative)
[name_u]Everest[/name_u] is adventurous but fun!
Evereux is my favorite boy EV- name. Nn Row.

I’ve never heard of Evereaux but I love it! The only problem is that my last name starts with the Row sound. :frowning:

[name_u]Everett[/name_u] is a popular name amongst my friends! I think it’s very sophisticated and intelligent. [name_u]Green[/name_u] and earthy but also well-read.

What do you guys think of [name_m]Evrard[/name_m] / Évrard?

I like [name_m]Everard[/name_m], [name_u]Everett[/name_u] is fine and I dislike [name_u]Evan[/name_u] and Everton.
