Never at all common as a male name and certainly obsolete today. A well-known bearer in the 20th century was the English novelist Evelyn Waugh, who pronounced his name as 'eev-lin' rather than in the American pronounciation for girls which is 'ev-lin'. Waugh was also married to a woman named Evelyn at one time, and together they were known as "He-Evelyn" and "She-Evelyn".

Hello my name is Evie! I love my name and so does everyone else. I was named after me grandmother Evelyn who passed away before I was born. She liked to be called Evie, so here I am. The problem is everyone, and I mean EVERYONE pronounces me name wrong! It is 'Ev (like the first part of Evelyn)-E (like the letter E.)And it really, REALLY upsets me when people call me 'E (like the letter E)-V (like the letter V) Which is another way you can pronounce it. But if you are going to pronounce it that way,spell it that way. Like Evy. Please respect the Evies out there! Lol!
