Meaning:Life, to live; Animal, bird
Lavished in many delightful definitions, Evlyn is a girl’s name of Latin origin, meaning “life” or “animal.” While most may know Evlyn as a lovely elaboration of the Hebrew name Chawwa or Eve, meaning “to live,” it’s also a name linked to the German word awi, which flows from the Latin expression avis for “bird.” Birds have been known throughout the world as air-borne emblems of great virtue, embodying liberty, peace, and protection. And whether baby turns out to be as doting as a dove or as beauteous as a blackbird, a name like Evlyn is a noble way to nurture their bond with the wonders of nature.
