Ways to get to Ever

I love the name [name]Ever[/name] for a girl. My husband will go for [name]Everly[/name], and call her [name]Ever[/name] for short, but won’t name her just [name]Ever[/name]. I however, don’t care for [name]Everly[/name]. So I guess I have two questions.

What are other ways to get to [name]Ever[/name] – except [name]Evelyn[/name] or [name]Everly[/name]? It can end in “ever” as well; it doesn’t have to just start with [name]Ever[/name].

[name]Do[/name] you think a child named [name]Ever[/name] will be made fun of – “never, ever” and “ever after,” etc??

Thanks in advance!

We’re probably naming our daughter [name]Evelyn[/name] and will use the nickname [name]Ever[/name]. I love it! I think kids will find a way to tease with any name, so wouldn’t worry too much about that if you really love it. Here are some suggestions:


[name]Gwenevere[/name] / [name]Guinevere[/name]
[name]Niamh[/name] / [name]Neve[/name]

Anything really that you would shorten to [name]Eve[/name]/[name]Evie[/name]/[name]Eva[/name] could work :slight_smile:
You could pronounce it more like [name]Eva[/name], emphasis on the EE rather than ever?

[name]Hope[/name] I helped at least a tiny little :slight_smile:

Why not just go with [name]Ever[/name]? It’s a perfectly acceptable two-syllable name.

If she wants a more formal name for business purposes when she’s older, she can always go by [name]Eve[/name] professionally.

[name]Everly[/name] sounds like a good compromise to me. You get [name]Ever[/name] and he gets a fuller name, it’s win-win

[name]Evrose[/name] or [name]Eve[/name]-[name]Rose[/name]/[name]Eva[/name]-[name]Rose[/name] (actually you could go [name]Eve[/name]/[name]Eva[/name] mn that starts with R____ and rock [name]Ever[/name]).

What about something like [name]Eve[/name] R_____? I think something like [name]Eve[/name] [name]Rosalie[/name], nn [name]Ever[/name], would be really cute. :slight_smile: [name]Eve[/name] [name]Rosalie[/name]'s just my favorite example, but I think [name]Eve[/name] [name]Rachel[/name]/[name]Eve[/name] [name]Rachela[/name], [name]Eve[/name] [name]Reagan[/name], [name]Eve[/name] [name]Rosalind[/name], [name]Eve[/name] [name]Rebecca[/name], [name]Eve[/name] [name]Romilly[/name], [name]Eve[/name] [name]Rachelle[/name]/[name]Eve[/name] [name]Rochelle[/name], [name]Eve[/name] [name]Renata[/name], etc. would all be gorgeous.

I like the idea of [name]Evangeline[/name] nn [name]Ever[/name], too. I agree any [name]Evie[/name] name would work. [name]Even[/name] something like [name]Genevieve[/name] nn [name]Ever[/name]…

My favorite ways to get to [name]Ever[/name] are Everleigh (I like it so much better than just [name]Everly[/name] because the latter looks like [name]Beverly[/name] with the B lopped off, at least to me) and [name]Reverie[/name]. I have also seen Evergrace, Everose (pronounced [name]Ever[/name]-rose) and Evermore. [name]Ever[/name] could work as a nickname for the aforementioned [name]Beverly[/name], [name]Ginevra[/name], [name]Avery[/name], [name]Everett[/name] or [name]Everest[/name] (if you like the unisex vibe), or [name]Guinevere[/name] (for something more frilly).

I can’t see there being a huge teasing factor. I can see people saying Never, [name]Ever[/name] and then going “huh!” I have a friend named Zari, and this happens to her when people say “sorry, Zari” but it has never been a huge source of teasing. [name]Just[/name] the occasional “clever” person who thinks they are the first one discover the rhyme…it’s never gotten more than an eye-roll from her, so I don’t see it being a big deal.

The thing is I’m not a fan of [name]Eve[/name] or [name]Evie[/name] because of how popular [name]Ava[/name] is – it’s just too close. I love [name]Everest[/name]!! Had not thought of that one; I’m going to have to run it by my husband. I am also a huge fan of [name]Reverie[/name], but again, he’s not on board :frowning:

I also love [name]Evita[/name], but wonder if it’s too Hispanic (as we are not)?? Like naming your child [name]Jose[/name] or [name]Gonzalo[/name] when you are white…
