I used to love the show Out of This World when I was a kid. I thought Evie was so cool and gorgeous, and knew I wanted to name my future daughter after her.
When I was pregnant with Baby #4 and found out she was a girl, I knew I had to name her Margaret because that was the name of my grandmother who had recently passed away, and it also my mom's name and my middle name. I really wanted to pass the name along, and hoped one day to have another daughter so I could have an Evie.
In all the years since I have seen the show (it was on back in the late 80's) I have been thinking of names for a girl that could have Evie as a nickname. I've come up with Evelyn, Genevieve, Emily Veronica (E.V.), Niamh (pronounced Neeve - which Phil doesn't like), and just recently Everleigh/Everly (which Phil thinks is too cutesie).
I'm a bit obsessed with the name, it's weird. I hope one day I have another daughter to use it on!!
Do you have any names that you REALLY wanted to name your kids - and did - or haven't had the chance yet?
P.S. She actually has a daughter named Evie...lucky!!
