Everett could be used as a name or a surname. Generally, Everett is used as a boy's name. It is pronounced as EV-er-et. This name has its origin in Old English. 'Strong boar' or 'wild boar' is the generally accepted meaning of Everett which is derived from Old German phrase 'eofor'. But, this word eofor is corruption of Ebor. The Anglo-Saxon people confused the pronunciation of Ebor for Eofor. In Ancient English, Ebor meant Yew tree.

The surname is derived from Everard. In the nineteenth century, Everett was in use as a given name. Example: Everett Dirksen and a British actor Rupert Everett. But, Everett is popularly used as a first name. In the 1990 census of United States of America, 261 males used this name from among 1219 males of all age groups.
