Would love opinions - H and I are discussing names for baby girl and there are two we like, Evelyn and Laurel. Evelyn is a family name but I don’t like how popular it has become or the NN H would use. Last name is very common and starts with M.
Evelyn Ruth Ann (double middle name) Evelyn Mary (both family names) Laurel Ruth Laurel Frances Laurel Evelyn Laurel Caroline
Re: Girl name
If you want to use Evelyn I'd use it as the MN. Laurel Evelyn is very nice too.
Don't worry about the NN. A lot of times they have nothing to do with the given name anyway.
I love Laurel i think it is beautiful and not used on every other girl. t reminds me of all beautiful things!
Agreed that Evelyn is very popular. I do have a friend named Elyn (pronounced Ellen) which could be a way to make it more unique.
I’m also assuming OP has picked a name by now since this post was from July.
