Met. Hierotheos Vlachos, in his book about baptism and catechism Entering the Orthodox Church, gives this quote from the Second Ecumenical Council, about receiving people into the Christian faith: " On the first day we make them Christians; on the second, catechumens; on the third, we exorcise them by breathing thrice in their face and ears; and thus we instruct them and oblige them to spend time in the Church, and to hear the Scriptures, and then we baptize them." In light of this, I don't see any problem with Evan simply describing himself as an Orthodox Christian.
Since catechumens are Christians, I think it's safe for you, as a catechumen at an Orthodox church, to describe yourself as an Orthodox Christian.
