Girl name — The Bump
Baby Names

Girl name

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

  • Love Laurel Ruth. Evelyn is getting pretty popular. Lots of little Evelyn/Evie at least where we live. 
    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.

    Laurel Evelyn. I like Evelyn as a first name but wouldn’t do it due to popularity especially with a common last name.

  • Laurel Ann
    Mary Laurel
  • Laurel Frances or Laurel Caroline are my faves but might choose evelyn as MN for family significance if that's important.

  • Both Evelyn and Laurel are beautiful. Not a fan of double middle names.
