My husband and I loved this name but to make it a little more unique we spell it Evyn. Everyone thinks that is really neat.

Stop naming your kids Evan. My name is Evan and back in the'sixties when I was growing up I never met another Evan and got used having a unique name. When ever anyone spoke ıEvanı I knew they were talking to me. Now I have a conditioned response to turn my head every time I hear the name called. With all the parents calling for there young Evans I'm getting whiplash. Stop it. (But if you do at least spell it right.)

I also spell my name with an I - Evin. I like to think I spell it the correct way, because It'seems like you would pronounce Evan as "Eh-VAN".

I didn't know ANYONE named Evan when I was growing up, but have always loved the name. It's masculine, but with a sensitive side, and familiar but not trendy. I named my son (born in 2018) Evan Grey, and now all of a sudden everywhere we go there seem to be a hundred Evans! I was definitely hoping the name would stay out of the limelight! Still, I don't think it will ever'seem dated the way something like Jaden or Isabella will 20 years from now.

The first time I heard the name Landon was when I watched MTV's Real World and there was a hot guy named Landon on the'show. I fell in love with the name and said if I ever have a boy he will have that name. Sure enough, I had a boy in 2018 and named him Landon. I think It's kind of neat that I have a story behind how I got his name.
