Exciting 'E' Names


I've recently realised that some of my favourite names begin with 'E'. I, of course, couldn't let this realisation pass without sharing with you what those names are. There's a name for everyone here- from the unusual to the often-heard-of to names from yesteryear.

Girls

Echo

Edde

Eden

Eira

Eleanor 

Elena 
 
Elia

Elita

Elodie
 
Elsbeth

Emmeline

Erin

Estella

Etta 

Etty

Evangeline 

Eve

Evelyn   

Everly

Eyre

Boys

Eaton

Eetion

Elden

Eli

Elios 

Eliot

Emmett

Erix

Eros 

Etienne

Ever*

Everett 

Ezekiel

Ezell


*For both boy and girl

All these names are very usuable (perhaps with the exception of Eros). I think names that begin with E sound very modern and current, although many of them were considered old fashioned not so long ago. I'm trying hard to not gush over them, but I'm finding it hard, people. I think they're excellent, and I can't even  begin to choose a favourite. And I'm sure I forgot to include some obvious ones, so let me know if I have. But, tell me. What is your favourite? Do you often find yourself liking names that begin with a particular letter?

I think I definitely lean towards S names: Seraphine, Saskia, Sakura, Sebastian, Sonny etc. When it comes to E names, I love Eli and Emmeline, I will admit to a slight crush on cornish Endellion.

My favorites are Emmeline and Everettt, but a close cousin has an Emma, and DH says no way to Everett :( I think I tend to like L names, especially for girls, but because we are fairly set on Louisa for our first girl (after my great grandmother) I am forever saying, but we can't use it....... Lavinia, Lucille, Lilliana, Leopold, Luna, Linnea.
