As it stands, the combination is Evelyn Meredith nn Evie.
I have a couple of issues with each choice.
  • Issue with Evelyn is that it rhymes with Meredith if you say them together, KWIM? I have thought of using Evelyn Sophia insted but i really want to use Meredith as i love the name, and i do love Evelyn aswell. Do you think the rhyming thing is a big issue?
  • Issue with Eva is that i think it sounds pretty harsh. Will be pronounced EE-vah.
  • Issue with Eve is that it doesnt really flow well with Meredith.
TIA

I voted for Eva.

Eva Meredith sounds great to me. And I don't think Eva sounds any harsher than Ava ... at least not to my ear.

I think Evelyn is absolutely gorgeous! And I don't think it rhymes with Meredith at all.

I didnt see it myself until someone pointed it out. They said something about the sylables of both names are the same so its sounds kinda like they rhyme. Its hard to describe. Dammit, who was the person who said that to me on here? lol.

^^ Ditto! I think it's a great name and it strays away from the Eva/Ava trend
