    Default Is the name Evie really that popular? (Particularly in NSW)

    My girls are 5 & 6. They've each had atleast one Evie in each kinder/ school class so far.

    But it is a lovely name!

    ETA we're in Victoria

    Yes we have a few Evie's in kindy and prep etc. I called my daughter Ivy thinking it was unique but it's in the top 30 for popular girls names. Doesn't matter really go with what you like.

    I'm in WA and i do know quite a few Evie's. Two in my 7 yr old's year at school, my 3 yr old dd knows another 2 and there is 1 in my 1 yr old's daycare room.

    But we also know a bunch of girls called Ava/Ivy/Eva and I guess it is similar sounding to those so it may appear even more common because of that.

    I know of a few. You could do Evelyn or Genevieve and have Evie as a nickname if you wanted to have something else she could be known as.

    I know about 4 Evies ranging from ages 2 - 6. One of those is an Evelyn. If DS was a girl we were thinking Genevieve with Evie as a nickname.

    Thanks everyone, this baby naming business is way trickier when there's a deadline! I am open to using it as a nickname for a longer name but unfortunately DH has his heart set on it solo. Maybe we'll compromise and I will get the middle name!

    I love Evie.

    Im in Victoria and have known 3 Evelyns who go by Eve or Evie. One was a baby. One was a 50 year old woman and the other was a teenager. I also heard a mum at the park two days ago call "Evie" to her child around 1 or 2 years of age.

    I know a couple. But you never really know who'll you'll meet. My DD is S ophie which is insanely popular apparently everywhere but here (nth qld) because we've never met another one lol.
