I asked my mom why I didn't get a biblical name and she always replied that I would be the first saint Evelyn...Haha very funny mom. I must admit I never liked my name in the rock'n 70's...Evelyn Louise was fuddy-duddy, old or african-american. (I'm white, not that it matters but I did wonder why I didn't know any white Evelyns as a kid). Flash forward to meeting my husband. His mother's middle name is Evelyn, and his grandmother's first name was Evelyn. When we had our daughter, we gave her the middle name of Evelyn. I still dislike Louise, but have grown to love Evelyn and now Angelina Jolie is in a hot new movie "Salt" and her character's name is Evelyn...that's right we Evelyns are bringing sexy back!"
