Traditionally, Devin is the masculine spelling of this name. Devon is the feminine spelling.

In a Precious Moments Baby Names book I recently bought, "Devin" is listed as being English, and meaning "little poet".

Devin means poet, it's Celtic.

Devin is also a masculine name of Turkish origin; pronounced the same way and meaning an intellectual, strong, or "new" as in change or revolution. It is my son's name. Many similar or identical names appear in both Turkish and Gaelic, as the Celts were amongst the earlier settlers of Galatia in the highlands of modern Turkey. Many of the names have continued on in modern Turkish society. Along with the occasional curly haired redhead. :-)
