Want some good news? Evangeline is a charming name that rose to the heights of popularity in the early 20th century, fell out of favor midcentury and has been fashionable again since 2006. Some credit Henry Wadsworth Longfellow for introducing the name to the English-speaking world in his 1847 epic poem “Evangeline,” but its modern popularity surge can be traced to the actress Evangeline Lilly, who starred on the TV drama “Lost,” starting in 2004.
