Draven is used by James O'Barr in "The Crow" for his character Eric Draven, popularized by Brandon Lee.

According to my information, James O'Barr only called his character Eric, and the surname Draven was invented by the screenwriters of the movie based on O'Barr's stories. I also don't think that Draven is a real surname, as the entry implies, but that it was only invented for the character in the film.

I'm pretty sure it's a bad pun. Draven is "The Raven" or "The Crow".

Draven is a derivative of the name Kraven. Kraven is a name that means "coward." The word Draven may have been used to negate the meaning and form an opposite, from coward to brave.

I love The Crow, and I love this name.

My son is named Draven. And it suits him. He's a very happy, smiling boy. My husband choose the name from the film " The Crow".

This strikes me as one of those names that parents below the age of 25 pick for their son because they think it's edgy and refreshing, and, who knows, some might pick it because they think it's ''sexy'' and youthful. Then, they will regret the choice, as it really does sound like a youthful, made-up name that doesn't age very well.

I don't know why but this sounds like the name for a goth person.

My son is named Draven and I think it is a fabulous name (one I hope doesn't become too common). I have found the meaning on another website, can't remember which one, as "child of beautiful shadows".

Draven is basically just an Americanised version of D'Raven, meaning the Raven, or, in the movie's sense, The Crow. In every Crow movie, the main character has a surname pertaining to bird or, more specifically, crows.

Good Charlotte guitarist Billy Martin and his wife Linzi's son is named Dreavyn Kingslee Martin.

After watching the movies, the realization came to me that all of the names were a variation of either 'crow' or 'raven'. Hence Draven.

The name is a modernization of the name drĒ½fend which means "hunter". It is a common surname in Scotland.

The name was made popular in the United States by the movie The Crow due to its main character Eric Draven.

The name "Draven" itself dates back to as early as the 1700's in Scotland.

My info can be found at houseofnames.com. I retract my original timeline though. The website says its been around since at least the 1500's.

The name "Draven" is actually the Scottish-Gaelic form of the name Douglas. It's meaning is "From the dark waters".

It did NOT originate from the movie "The Crow", however Brandon Lee's character did boost the popularity of the name.

I just wish I could get this information on all name sites because 99% have it wrong.

I named my son Draven in February 2002. I was told that he was the first Draven in the US by the SS admissions. I absolutely love his name and even to this day receive tons of compliments for originality. I don't believe that his name has anything to do with darkness or anything for that matter.
-- sahnemann  4/29/2013
Sorry to the person who thought they had the 1st US bred Draven in 2002, guess the SSA didn't know what they were talking about. My son was born 4/1/00 with Draven as his first name. It is a play off a Scottish/ Celtic word... but I chose it from The Crow. To honor Brandon Lee... he was killed shooting the film The Crow. In the movie he was reborn to avenge his wife's murder and right a wrong. I look at the name as a hero, a dark Angel of redemption.
