User comments for Draven (Meaning / History Only)

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

Draven comes from the Druid/Celtic language. Meaning: a true leader, king with leadership qualities.

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.

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.

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 drǽfend 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 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'm a female named Draven born in the late 60's. I was always told my name was Celtic, a form of Drafend which means hunter. It became popular in the U.S. first because of The Crow and then because of League of Legends.
