Other Origin(s):Hebrew, Scottish
Meaning:God is gracious; Born of yew; Youth
Ev is a beautiful boy’s name of Welsh origin with many wholesome meanings on the horizon for baby. The name Ev, borne mostly as a darling diminutive of Evan, comes from the Hebrew name Yochanan, which gifts it its glorious “God is gracious” meaning. Ev’s relations to the Scottish name Euan, meaning “born of yew” or “youth,” may also reveal the legend and lore hidden in its two letters. Revered by Celtic civilizations for their ability to build brand-new trunks from old branches, yew trees were made a mythological message of life both lost and renewed. And naming your little one Ev is an inspiring way to revive the legacy of that ancient belief.
