- Personal experiences with the name Evelina: | Edit
My name is actually Ewelina, as I was born in Poland and that is the Polish spelling. Since I moved to Canada, I go by Evelina. I grew up hating it because no one knew how to pronounce it or spell it. When I was younger, friends would call me Evie or Ev but looking back, I dislike both. Some people would even ask me if they could call me Evelyn or Eve! No. Of course not. That's not my name. Now I think it sounds lovely and feminine and I finally appreciate it at age 25. (divider) I know a girl named Eveliina, spelled with two I's.
