people often don't realise there is an I after the v and just call me eve or they call me Eva
My name is Reva but everyone calls my Evie. I like the nickname, but when my brother and I were younger, he couldn't pronounce it and would call me Evil. Other than that, it's great. Easy to spell and pronounce, and not super common where I'm from.

My name is Evie and I’m 16. My full name is Genevieve which I love however my family and friends all call me Evie. I’ve only met one other Evie ever but I think there’s another girl in my school called Evie too ( my school has roughly 2000 people in it tho so that’s not too bad) it’s never spelt wrong by people even though I’ve seen other spellings when researching my name. I have a friend who likes pokemon a lot and there’s an eevee in Pokemon which she talks about sometimes but I don’t mind and thinks it cool. Evie seems like it would be popular and plain but I like it and think it’s not.
