Hi, I had a dream the other night that I had a baby girl and named her Ever. The more I thought about it the more I liked it. I was wondering what do you think of the name Ever? Could it be used alone or should it be a nickname for another name like Everly? Should I consider it as a middle name instead? Thanks so much for your time and thoughts.

I find that I prefer Ever as a nickname for something else.  It just doesn't seem complete to me.  I like the name in theory but I don't think I could ever use it for a first name.  Ben and I had the name Evermay picked for a middle name if Wiley had been a girl.  If you would like more full name options for Ever, let me know.

Thanks so much I would love some other options. I just had Everly, because my grandma passed away last year and her name was Beverly so I was thinking of honoring her with Everly.

I think Everly would be a great way to honor your grandmother.  

 

Some more names that contain 'ever'...

 

Aeverie

Devera

Everil

Guinevere 

Leverne

Quinevere

Xeveria

Severra

 

There is also Everett which could possibly work for a girl or if you want to name a son after your grandmother.

I love the name Ever! I heard it years ago in a book and ever (haha) since I've loved it! I think it's great on it's own. It's simple and pretty. One name I do like to use Ever as a nickname is Evaline. I think that's just gorgeous and has an old-timey feel to it.

 

I like Ever or Everly are both great and if using either to honor your grandmother is awesome. :)

Ever does seem incomplete.  It would seem choppy with most middle names.  Everly nickname Ever (although I prefer the nickname Evie) would be best.  :)

I have a hard time picturing Ever on a girl, probably because I know a boy with the name. 

 

I think Everly is lovely and honoring your grandmother makes it even better!
