Everina

Everina is an English female name, most likely a feminine form of Everett or Everard meaning “brave boar” made up from Old English *eofor (boar; wild boar) and heard (brave, hardy, strong). It’s also likely that, in modern times, Everina is an elaborated form of the English word Ever meaning “at all times; always”, “continuously”, “at any time”.
