Would it be weird to use EVANGELINE if I'm an atheist?


I feel the same way, like it’s not “right” for a baby in our family. However I did read that it is from the Greek root evangelos which is more about actual good news than religious “good news”.
That made me feel better about it. I also found that using the parental block to remove the televangelism stations from my tv keeps the word out of my head…

It’s so interesting that you posted this question, because I had the same thought! I love the name [name]Evangeline[/name], but I am not [name]Christian[/name]. The religious association was enough to make me decide against using it, but I think it is totally a personal choice for you. If it doesn’t bother you, then it shouldn’t bother anyone else. (P.S. I love the nickname [name]Evie[/name]!)

I like this name, but I have the same problem with it. I’m also considering nixing [name]Benedict[/name] too, even though I love it.
