Evelynn is a gender-neutral name of British origin but is most commonly used as a girl name. This timeless and classic beauty means “desired” and originally comes from the Norman-French version, Aveline, as well as the German name Avila. What better way to start raising baby as a confident, self-possessed individual than to give them a name like Evelynn? Baby will always know they are loved when their name means a child who is sought-after and wanted. With its alternative spelling of Evelyn, this baby name is also naturally warm (and some may even say a little fulsome), with the meaning “hazelnut.”
