Comments for the name Stephen

Comments for STEPHEN:

Stephen is well known for being a jester. Although not well known by the ladies, gets on exceptionally well with other men as is very capable of making them laugh. Their future leads to loneliness.

Stephen is a cool guy.

Way too overused for me, I know a lot of guys named Stephen/Steven. I prefer the spelling Steven though.

Don't name your kid Stephen. My dad's name is Stephen, three of my relatives are named Stephen. I know at least nine Stephens (with different spellings granted). It's way too common. Name your kid something not many people have.

Is this name pronounced ste-fen or ste-ven?
-- kwebberag  2/7/2007
I think it can be pronounced both ways. By the way, I think Stephen is a nice name in it's own way. It's nothing like "oh don't name your child this." Come on, everyone! Also: it is interesting that its meaning is Greek for "crown" and the writer Stephen King has the last name King relating to a crown! Didn't anyone notice that or am I just being kinda smart here? ;)

I prefer Stephen spelled this way because it's the classic spelling and Stephen is a classic name. This name makes me think of a professor or lawyer or doctor. Steven makes me think of Stevie Nicks or Steve Martin or Stevie Wonder.

When I hear this name I think of a young king with curly blonde hair.

My brothers' name is Stephen and I like it! It IS pronounced Ste-ven if anyone asks. I like this spelling better because that's how it is in the bible and this spelling reminds me of a smart doctor, or an author. The spelling Steven reminds me of a silly boy that picks his nose or something! :-)

I don't like the spelling of this name. If you want to pronounce it STEEV-ən, then it should be spelled Steven. If you want to pronounce it STEF-ən, then it should be spelled Stefan.

I honestly feel this spelling should be pronounced "STEF-en". It doesn't look like it should be pronounced "STEEV-en".

I much prefer this spelling to Steven. I'm not sure why.

I was reared being called "Stee-vin" but due to the two consonants of "ph" separates the vowel relationship and compel people to say "Ste'ffin". This can be a difficult name to have due to if you say it one way or another they would want to spell it how it sounds. I usually go by the general short name "Steve" for Stephen.

I like Steven better, but Stephen sounds more classic.

Well, it is my name after all and I think a good alternate edition of the name is "STEVERINO" coming from the short of the name "STEVE"

I like this spelling for the name. This spelling is the correct spelling, in that it is the way the saint's name is spelt. If you are concerned with spelling it phonetically, then the same letter shouldn't be used to represent the two different vowel sounds in it, should it.

I love this name! The fact that it only has a 65% approval rating saddens me (especially when Jayden and Julian are far higher). It makes me question the credibility of the users here.
