Both are names I absolutely love, but they are incredibly similar.

So my question is fairly simple, which one would you choose? Based on a number of factors: Personal preference, meaning, bad association, aging.
Please tell whatever makes you choose one over the other.

Oh, and if you prefer another alternative which is similar to these two, please say so in a post.
It would be helpful!

PS: middle names yet to be chosen.

I'm probably not much help...I like both names! But I have to say that I prefer Eve over Ivy. The reason is that Ivy makes me think of a plant. That doesn't make it a bad name, I'm still a fan, i just like Eve better.

I love both. They have a simple elegance. I voted for Ivy because it isn't used as often. While Eve itself isn't all that popular Eve can be a nn for Evelyn, Evangeline, Genevieve, Everly, Ever etc. I really do love them both though.

I LOVE Evy the most out of the similar sounding names.

Maybe Eden? :P <3

I prefer Ivy. I do like variations of Eve, such as Evelyn or Evaline (Ev-uh-leen), but I am not a fan of Eve by itself.

Some variations you may like:
Ivana
Ivelle
Ivadia
Ivenna/Evenna
Ivyleigh
Ivabelle

Evalinda
Eveleigh
Ever
Evabelle


I hope this helped!
