It's not Cay-ven, it's Cav(rhymes with have)-in.

I wouldn't call a child Cavan. That's like calling someone Dublin or Cork or Derry (Londonderry, same diff).

I see kids called Dallas, Cheyenne and Dakota all the time. I've even seen a London and Jefferson. Naming a kid this is no different.

What on earth is this "name" doing here? Not only is it a placename, it's the name of a place which is the butt of many jokes by Irish people from outside Cavan. If I met someone named Cavan I would have a hard time keeping a straight face. It's beyond ridiculous.

I have a female cousin by this name, named after the place in Ireland where my aunt's maternal side of the family came from. A lot of us were a bit surprised when we heard the name, but we got used to it quickly, as both a girl's name and a person's name period. If I didn't know someone by this name, though, I might not be so willing to give it a pass.

My cousin is named Cavan, and he got it from his grandmother's maiden name, Cavanaugh.
