- Personal experiences with the name Everly: | Edit
We thought we were being original with naming our daughter this, but apparently it was a considered a boy's name a long time ago and there's a current celebrity's child named this, but with the spelling Everleigh. Without knowing that, we'd considered the 'Everleigh' spelling, but thought it was too long/fussy for us, so we kept it at Everly. There are some older folks who think we are saying "Beverly" when we tell them the name, and we have to tell them, yes, but without the "b". Some folks are also reminded of the Everly Brothers duo. If those things would get on your nerves, it's something to consider before naming your child this. I like it because I think it sounds both unique and classic.
My great grandmothers name was Evelyn and I wanted to do a spin on that. My older sister is called Lovey by all, so I named my daughter Everly Love! I thought it was pretty special! And at least it was for a reason:)
As of Fall 2016, this name has become extremely popular. I work at a pediatrician's office and several new babies this month have been born with this name.
I know FIVE families who named their daughters Everly in 2016. For that year it was listed as #107 on the Social Security's list of most popular baby names. To be honest, I'm surprised it wasn't in the top 100!!
It's a really beautiful name, but it has exploded in popularity in the past couple years. So if you're looking for a unique name, I would choose something else, as I wouldn't be surprised if it ends up in the top 50 or even top 20 in the next couple years.
