Day 5 – E – Bonus post
I don’t know what I didn’t think of doing this sooner, possibly because I usually call her Wee One, but she’s got an E name, and would make a good E word!
It first caught my attention in A League of their Own, as Stillwell Angel’s mom. “Evelyn! I’m going to kill! Your son!” I liked the way it sounded when it was yelled. 🙂
I heard it again in Kate Beckinsale’s character in Pearl Harbor, and she wore it with such class and elegance. So even before I met Cohiba, I knew, if I had a girl, I was going to name her Evelyn. Cohiba wasn’t sold on it at first, but then he remembered his grandmother was Evelyn, and that was that.
I was a little afraid I would meet her and she wouldn’t “be” an Evelyn, but she totally is. I don’t call her Evie or Ehvie, though some friends currently do. She may want to be called that when she gets older, but for now, she is My Evelyn.

This post makes me want to watch A League of Their Own Again. 😄 Sweet post, my grandma was also an Evelyn.
That’s always a good movie! 🙂 Thanks for popping by!
I didn’t realize Kate Beckinsale’s character is named Evelyn in Pearl Harbor?? Your daughter is beautiful. Totally an Evelyn!
Aw, thank you! I think so, but of course, I’m biased.
