The first name 

Evy is a female first name.

When two girls called Evy meet...

… it’s a special occasion. That’s because the name Evy is quite rare in the US. While it’s still a name in use, lately, only approximately 3 out of 100,000 girls have been named Evy. In the SmartGenius ranking, Evy is #3,169 on the list of most common girls names. If you polled the whole US population – children, adults and seniors – you’d find less than one in 10,000 to be named Evy.

You won't believe all there is 
to discover about the name

Evy -
swimming against the tide

If your name is Evy your parents may be very proud to let their daughter swim against the tide: The name Evy never ranked higher than position 1,452 in our statistics, and for many years not a single parent had the creative idea of naming their daughter Evy. But something caused mothers and fathers in 1895 to choose the name more often than usual - only compared to the rest of the time, of course. You probably still won't find many children named Evy because that was a veeeeery long time ago - unless, of course, you have some very creative parents in the neighborhood.

In years where the graph has no value, the name Evy was given less than five times or even none at all in the entire USA.

2021 - looking for Evy?

As in the last century, Evy still proves to be exceptional. Even in 2021, the name was given very rarely - in fact, only 41 times in thee entire U.S. So, a Evy from 2021 will need very good binoculars to spot the next namesake of the same age.

Evy -
at home only in a few regions of the USA

It is not so easy to find a woman or girl named Evy in the USA. Although the name is not sooooo rare overall, it is only at home in a few selected regions of the USA. In the entire United States there are currently a total of 138 women and girls named Evy, but there are vast areas of the country where not a single person with this name can be found. In fact, the 138 women and girls named Evy live in no more than 8 different states, including for example California, Florida, Michigan, Minnesota and North Carolina. In all other 42 states, there are no – or, to be precise, less than a handful – women called Evy. (To explain: The official statistics provide the data per state only if at least five women with a specific name live in the same state. So, it’s quite possible that there are one or two states where someone with the name Evy lives although the name is not listed in the official statistics. Should you be one of those rare people whose name is Evy and you live outside the states highlighted on the map, please let us know so we can improve our statistics.). The state with the most girls and women named Evy relative to its female population is California. And even there, only one in 173,494 women and girls would raise her hand if you asked, who is called Evy.

Evy has 3 letters 
and begins with an E

Well, you might say, you probably figured that out yourself! But what you might not know is: The letter E is neither particularly common nor particularly rare as a first letter for girls' names: 3.9% of all common girls' names in the US begin with this letter. The most common first letters of girls' names, by the way, are A, S and M, while U, X and Q are the least common initials of girls' names.

With only three letters, the name Evy is obviously very short. In fact, only 1.0% of all common first names in the US consist of exactly three letters. Just 0.2% of all first names are even shorter and only have two letters, while nearly 99% of all boys’ and girls’ names use more than three letters. On average, first names in the US (not counting hyphenated names) are 6.5 letters long. There are no significant differences between boys' and girls' names.

That means that with 3.9%, E as the first letter in girls' names is almost as common as all 26 letters on average - and of all the girls' names that start with an E, Elizabeth is the most common.

Other names with 
E, v and y

If you take all the letters in the name Evy – E, v and y – and put them together again, you can form another name, such as Yve.
