Popularity of the Names Eve and Evelyn?

A reader named Trish asked me this quick question:

Do you know where Eve ranks these days? We are considering either Evelyn or Eve for our second daughter.

Eve is currently ranked 618th and its popularity seems to be sinking. Evelyn, on the other hand, is ranked 55th and its popularity is definitely on the rise. Both are lovely names.

I should also note that both Evangeline and Evie recently re-entered the top 1,000 after decades-long absences, and that Ava has been in the top 10 for the past few years.

  1. friend of mine once noted that as names started to appear in the obituaries, they also came back for babies. ergo, the resurrection of Evelyn, Lillian, Lily, etc.
