This is a very nice name for a boy. Makes me think of a man who is smart and inventive.

My name is Kelvin and I have met very few others with the same name. I did share the top marks in class with another Kelvin in grade 8 (the only one I knew for many years). Mostly people do not comment on my name but it is often misspelled or mispronounced as Calvin, Kevin, Kelvan etc.

I hate the sound of this name, and it sounds strange as a name for obvious reasons.

Star Trek's USS Kelvin (NCC-0514), was a Kelvin-type 23rd century Federation starship that was in service during the 2230s. In 2233, Captain Richard Robau commanded the Kelvin; his first officer was Lieutenant Commander George Kirk. Kirk's wife, Winona, was also aboard the ship at that time while she was pregnant with their son, James T. Kirk.
Namely seen in 2009's explosive hit "Star Trek XI," prequel to the previous.

We've had a few Kelvins in the preschool where I work (in the U.S.). I have several coworkers and families from Ireland, and when someone told me a child's name and I asked "wait, Calvin or Kelvin?" I discovered that the Irish folks pronounce both of these two names the way I would say "Kelvin."

Kevin's fine, but Kelvin just sounds sooo nerdy!

Kelvin is a unit of measurement for temperature that is named after Lord Kelvin, a mathematical physicist and engineer. That is why I associate this name with someone who is nerdy and/or intelligent in math and science.

A proud Kelvin since birth in 1942, I have only met one other Kelvin. I was standing in line in Boston to pick up theater tickets where we had to give our name. I overheard the gentleman in front of me give his name as "Kelvin Xyz". I clapped him on the shoulder and enthused about my first ever Kelvin encounter. He said that he had been born in New Zealand and down there Kelvin was as common as Keith or Kenneth, if not more so. I don't know if this is born out by the stats. Still, an interesting data point.
