I have always loved the name Devan. It is a strong boys name. I am not too fond of it for a girl. I would either use this spelling since my husband's name is Kevan or the spelling Devin.

I loved the name from the moment I saw it in a book of baby names. I named my daughter Devan.

Hey, hey, hey, my name's Devan, and I am a woman. I like the meaning of "poet" better than "little black one," since I'm like, not tan in the slightest.

My roommate's name is Devan (and we're both females, in case you're wondering). I actually prefer this spelling on women more than the others, and it sounds cool on/with her.

My name's Devan and I'm a woman. I think it'd be sweet to marry a man named Devan. :D Then we could be Devan Squared!

Unfortunately, I know a girl with this name. I don't understand why every name ending in the -in/-on sound is believed to be acceptable for girls, its not. Devin/Devon/Devan/whatever "creative" spelling people make up is not a girl name. I honestly don't think it's a very mature sounding boy name in the first place, but on girls.. No! And "Devan" looks like the parents couldn't figure out how to spell so they just stuck a d in front if Evan.
