Evalyn is a girl’s name of Hebrew origin and an alternative spelling to the classic name Evelyn. This beautiful name can be traced back to old French and old Germanic girl names like Aveline, Avelina, and Avila, meaning “life,” “desired,” and “water”. Other earlier origins of Evalyn exist, such as the Hebrew name Eve which means “to live” and the Celtic word “lyn” which translates to “lake”. With so many connections to the word “life”, it’s no wonder that this vibrant name is still popular after so many years.
