About This Name


Evita is a diminutive of Eva, ultimately derived from Eve. Eve originates in Hebrew language and means "living and breathing". Eve has been one of the most popular feminine given names over centuries and in different spelling around the world. It has been mainly popular in Christianity and Judaism since Eve was the second person and the first woman created by God. God created her from her husband Adam's rib. Later on, she is the one who suggests to eat the forbidden fruit and consequently they are both expelled from the Garden of Eden. In the United States, Eve's popularity has declined in the last few decades. Evita was popularized by Eva Peron, nicknamed Evita, the wife of Juan Peron, President of Argentina in the 1940s and 1950s.
