Etymology & Historical Origin - Evelynn

Evelynn is just Evelyn with one more “n”. Evelyn probably developed from “Eibhlín” (pronounced ev-len) which is the Gaelic rendering of the Germanic name Aveline, from the element “avi” believed to mean “desired”. The Norman-French were responsible for bringing the name Aveline to the British Isles by way of the 1066 Conquest where it rapidly transformed into Evelyn. Evelyn started out as a surname in England and then developed into a given name for both boys and girls (think: English novelist Evelyn Waugh). Originally Evelyn was far more common as a masculine name. Today the reverse is true. Adding that extra “n” to Evelynn certainly confirms its femininity. Regardless, the traditional spelling of Evelyn is a Top 25 most favorite name in the United States (and a Top 100 in Canada, Australia and England/Wales).

Popularity of the Name Evelynn

Evelynn with two “n”s first appeared on the American female charts in 2009. Her recent debut is clearly in reaction to the rising popularity of Evelyn. Some parents have decided to throw on that extra “n” probably in an effort to make the name appear more girly-girl. Less than 10% of the Evelyns being born today get that extra “n” tacked on to the end of their name. Which might be a good thing. Girls with the spelling of Evelynn are likely to go through life saying “Evelynn. That’s Evelyn with two Ns”. That could be a nnuisance.
