What do you think of Evie?
Do you think it can stand alone as a name? Or would you prefer it to be a nickname (For Eve/Eva/Evelyn)?
I am in love with this name! I know of 1 baby with this name (it's her given name, not a nn).
If I ever used it, i'm not sure if i would use it as a nickname of as a stand alone name.
I do really like Evelyn but alot of people seem to think it's too "old fashioned".
Btw i'm pronouncing it E-vee, not eh-vee (I thought everyone pronounced it E-vee but i saw a few ppl on another board pronounce it Eh-vee)
It's a really cute nickname but it definitely should only be used as a nn. I pronounce it E-vee. I like Evelyn but I like Eva, Evangeline/a, or Eve a lot more. It could even work as a nn for Genevieve, which I also love.

I really like Evie. I think my favorite name to use Evie as a nn for is a non-obvious one, Genevieve. If you look at Genevieve, it's plain to see Evie is in there!
I met a Genevieve called Evie/Eve in high school and I always liked it. It's kind of surprising but it's not totally random.
If you want it pronounced EE-vee instead of EH-vee, I'd make sure to use it as a nn for a name you pronounce with the same sound. So Eva pronounced EE-va, Eve, etc ... but not Evelyn pronounced EHV-lyn, or Evangeline pronounced eh-VAN-jel-in. That way people will be more likely to pronounce it the right way, since they have the full name to go off.
To me it's very much a nickname, given that it's one of the more common nicknames I get called, though I did see a little girl on one of the DDC's who named there daughter Evie-Jo which was cute and weird at the same time lol being 2 letters away from my own name.
