I'm running a website,and part of the page is a list of my favorite names. I'm always looking to add new names....and so here I am. Could ya'll give me your favorite names? And Mike C. ... My name was orginally a boy's name, and when I was born in the 1980s it was considered almost completely as a male name. All Havens I've met IRL have been males! :) You have it listed as only a female name. Also-i was once told it was of Turkish-Hebrew descent and meant Life. I've never quite believed it though.
