I think it’s ridiculous to say what you think of when you hear a certain name. For the most part everyone thinks of something different. I think Evelyn is a really beautiful name and I love the nickname Eve or Eva with it....Eva is very cute.

I always think of a fair/light skinned woman, and older. But a graceful, gentle personality and appearance. Hope this helps!

I don’t think there is any stereotype of the name Evelyn. There is for Ashley, though.
