Evelyn is a romantic and feminine name that is making a comeback from its super popular days a century ago, perhaps due to its closeness to current name superstars Ava, Avery, and Eva.

Evelyn is an English female name with a couple of possible etymologies. First of all, it is often considered a diminutive of “Eve” (essentially the very first female name on the planet earth if one is to take the Bible literally). Fittingly, Eve comes from the Hebrew “Hawah” meaning “a living being” from the verb “hayah” meaning “to live” (which apparently sounds suspiciously close to the Arabic word for “serpent”). Secondly, Evelyn developed into a metronymic surname from the Old French Aveline (a female name brought to England after the Norman Conquest of 1066).
