My New Niece!

Let me introduce you to Evaine Claire ("Evaine" is pronounced like the name "Elaine"). She was born last Thursday morning, just a day before her due date and just under 8lbs. She's beautiful!




Congrats to Rachel and Ramon! Can you guess where her parents got her first name from?

You sparked my curiousity.

ps. Evaine is beautiful... check out all that dark hair.

Julie said...

So Evaine is totally pronounced like Elaine? The V sounds like an E?

Julie said...

I meant the V sounds like an L?

Elaine said...

What a beautiful name for such a beautiful little girl. Congratulations!

I'm in love with her hair!

Blessedw5mom said...

What a beauty! I'm in love with that hair, too! I'm curious about the name

She's absolutely adorable! And isn't Evaine a name from the novel/movie "Stardust"?

Elizabeth said...

Stardust!!! Gorgeous name for a gorgeous little girl. Congratulations!

Agnes said...

Think her hair is longer than mine...so lovely. I believe Evaine is the sister of wife of Sir Lancelot from Knights of the Round Table and hence she was the aunt of Sir Galahad.

Sheryl said...

congrats to everyone! she sure is precious.

Love the name. I'm so glad to know our baby is not the only one who will suffer the "how do you pronounce that?" issues. By the way, our new baby's name is Ceili Rain (Kaylee Rain for pronunciations...and those two names are her first name!)

Emily said...

She's beautiful! SO MUCH HAIR! Must be a family thing.... ;-)
Love and prayers,

There are two sources for the name Evaine.

Evaine is a Hebrew derivation for Eve or Eva.

Evaine was the wife of King Bors in Arthurian legend. She was the sister to Elaine.

Selina said...

just googled it,

Life in the Hebrew language. More popular in the form of "Eva" in the mid-19th century. Eve is actually the French form of the name Eva. Of course, it is more well-known for its appearance, in the Book of Genesis in the Bible, in the story of Adam and Eve.

am I right?!

Momof2bz said...

She is gorgeous! I am sure that she will be spoiled with love. Congratulations to your whole family!

Carol said...

Oh she is beautiful. Yay Gwyneth - you have cousin! Congrats to your sister and brother-in-law!

terri c said...

Would you look at that GORGEOUS baby!!! ALMOST as cute as Gwyneth... actually they are tied.

Joyful said...

She's a sweetie! Is the name a combination of two family members?...like Evelyn and Elaine? Or even a mix of Evelyn and Wayne, after a great-grandma and grandpa?
Enjoyed the beach pictures too. So much love in them all.

Blessings,
Joy

the movie stardust???

Julie said...

I don't have a guess on the name, but WOW does that girl ever have a head full of hair!!

Precious baby!! Congratulations, Rachel & Ramon!! I'm sure I'm not the only one looking forward to learning where the name came from, it's lovely!

Salome Ellen said...

Kathrine Kurtz Deryni books? We have a "Kelson" from those.

Tara said...

She is gorgeous! Congrats!

BrunetteKoala said...

Apparently 'Evaine' had a son who achieved the Holy Grail. But different websites seem to have completely different explanation of the meaning of the name...??

Got one saying it's an Irish name meaning 'young warrior' and the other saying it comes from the name 'Eve' and another saying about the Arthurian legend of Evaine being King B's wife.

But if Evaine is a character in Stardust, I'm guessing from there....!

Kalani said...

gywneth and evaine - aren't they similar? you guys have a penchant for Welsh/British Isles names. Both belong in a book about them or inspired by them! evaine - french spelling of eve?

Her hair made me smile. My youngest had a head full of fuzzy black hair when he was born. When he had his hospital picture taken, they lady kept trying to smooth it down and it would bounce right back up....LOL!

What a precious little babe--congrats to your family!
