Is this name tired?

We don’t know the sex yet but I love the name Evelyn but it’s more popular than id prefer but we struggle with girl names. Is Evelyn overused/tired? We have a very unique last name but I’d prefer our child not to be one of 15 kids with the same name when in school. Thoughts? Thanks!

Re: Is this name tired?

  • It would have been on my list but the popularity turned me off. I have a popular last name.  It’s classic and beautiful.  I do not like the nn Evie. 
  • I personally know like 5 Evelyns born in the last 3 years. Seems very trendy at this point.

    It’s very “right now.”


  • It’s a classic, a popular one right now, but it’s a great name!

  • Type your commentI do think Evelyn is tired-- have you considered Roselyn?
  • I personally think it's overused as is the overly feminine with many vowels trend for girls.
