Happy Name Day, Evelína! Všechno nejlepší k svátku!

Today we honor Evelína.  Happy name day, Evelína!

The name Evelína is the latinate form of Aveline, which is from the Norman French form of the Germanic name, Avelina.  The name Evelina was revived by the author Frances "Fanny" Burney for the heroine of her first novel "Evelina" (1778).  It is also often regarded as a variant of the related name, Evelyn.
