    Between these two, which do you like better and why?

    I think I like Evangeline better. No real reason really but I do like the nickname Evie.

    Genevieve sounds classy and old-fashioned to me. Evangeline makes me think of a soap opera for some reason.

    Both are beautiful! I like the sound of Genevieve better but the “look” of Evangeline-if that makes any sense. It’s a close call…

    I am in LOVE with Evangeline. It sounds beautiful and looks beautiful as well. If this last kiddo is a girl, I’m about 98% set on Piper Evangeline.

    I love Genevieve and I really dislike Evangeline. To me, Genevieve is sweet and classic, feminine without being too over the top. Evangeline has just never sat well with me. It seems too drippy and over the top, making me picture someone with big hair, lots of makeup and jewelry, etc. (definitely soap opera-ish). I also can’t shake the evangelical connection.

    50-50 so far, eh? :)

    And that’s really interesting as Evangeline to me sounds really old-fashioned; I wouldn’t have thought it would have a soap opera vibe at all but that’s good to know! (If anything I would picture more of a proper, well-dressed older woman.)

    I think by now you probably know my thoughts on Evangeline.

    Genevieve isn’t my favorite name – I agree with embra on it being “classy and old-fashioned,” and it’s really pretty, but it’s always felt a little… too much, I guess. Like it’s kind of a really grand-sounding name, to me. I really like that it has a lot of nickname potential, though.

    I can see that, Star. Thanks for your input!

    The only Evangeline I know is a little 3 year old so that’s why I like it better. Seems fresher and younger. :)

    Evangeline! One of my friends named her daughter that and call her Evie! Cute!
