I love that name! It's old-fashioned, which is a good thing in my book. Harvey could fit any age in my opinion.

Although no longer in the American top 1,000, having featured in the top 100 in the United States a century ago, but declining throughout the 20th century, it has in the past few years been a regular in the British top 100.

Reminds me of Harvey from Sabrina the Teenage Witch, but he was adorable, so it's a good association.

I am sorry but when I hear this name I think the kid would have insecurities and be a brat, I get this impression from the old cartoon I used to watch when I was a kid called Codename: Kids Next Door.

But I can also think of it as a very daring man, the impression from the Gallagher Girls series by Ally Carter that is one of the teachers first name.

After playing through Final Fantasy IV again, I've come to the conclusion that this works MUCH better as a surname than a first name.

There is more than one Harvey in the Batman universe.

Detective Harvey Bullock and District Attorney Harvey Dent who, as a previous poster wrote, becomes Two-Face.

Also the internet reviewer Lewis "Linkara" Lovhaug has a character called Harvey Finevoice.

I think this name is spunky sounding, but nice and masculine, it also has the association of the mayor Harvey Milk, whom I continue to admire :)

Makes me think of hamburgers. Harley is better.

Makes me think of the 1970s and Sabrina's boyfriend on Sabrina, the Teenage Witch.

This name sounds very masculine but has a serious tone, I like it.

Harvey Akio Itano was an American biochemist best known for his work on the molecular basis of sickle cell anemia and other diseases. In collaboration with Linus Pauling, Itano used electrophoresis to demonstrate the difference between normal hemoglobin and sickle cell hemoglobin; their 1949 paper "Sickle Cell Anemia, a Molecular Disease" was a landmark in both molecular medicine and protein electrophoresis.

Harvey Beaks is a cartoon on Nickelodeon. The main character is a bird named Harvey Beaks who's 9 years old lives in the woods with the other animals. He has a very strong conscience, and the plot of every episode is usually that one of his friends convinces him to do something he probably shouldn't and then feels overly guilty about it. It's a very cute cartoon and a very cute namesake.

Steve Harvey is a TV show host, probably most famous for hosting Family Feud. He's no stranger to controversy. He mistakenly called the wrong winner of the Miss Universe Pageant in 2015. More recently, he made a comment on his show suggesting that Asian men are inherently unattractive. He's known to make misogynistic comments as well.

I don't like it! It is the name of the hurricane that devastated Houston and other parts of Texas.

Harvey was the name given to a Cooper's hawk that recently became an internet sensation when she flew into a cab to escape the hurricane for which she was named. She'd sustained a minor injury to her wing and was too stunned to leave. She was rehabilitated and released back into the wild. Harvey the hawk became a symbol of hope and recovery in the wake of the storm, and is the only famous female bearer of this name (to be fair, the cabbie who rescued her thought she was male).

Never cared for this name. It sounds like something hipsters would call their son. Plus I think it's going to take a nosedive in popularity due to the Harvey Weinstein scandal.
