Evalyn is a modern girl’s name and an alternative spelling to the classic name Evelyn. This beautiful name can be traced back to Old French and Germanic names like Aveline and Avila, whose meanings are unknown but thought to be "desired" or "hazelnut." Possibly a simple blend of Eva and Lyn, Evalyn gets the additional meanings "to breathe" and "to live" from Eva, a form of Eve, and "lake" in Welsh, "beautiful" in Spanish, and "tender" or "mild" in German, from Lyn. With so many connections to the word “life,” it’s no wonder that this vibrant name is still popular after so many years.
