I think this name is too boring.

I am married to a Kevin and what I have found in life is that no matter what Kevin's get a bad rap. They always seem to be in the wrong place at the wrong time and get in trouble even if they're not guilty. They have a quick temper and feel that they are not taken seriously. Every one I have ever encountered has been handsome with that cute child-like appearance. They always seem up to something. I think they are great and need extra special attention.

My name is Kevin and I don't exactly require special attention. I just favor it. Boyish good looks and a bad habit of being in the wrong place at the wrong time do seem to be symptoms I suffer from though.

Kevin is a great name, it just happens to be my husband's as well. He spells it Kevan and gets it spelt and pronounced wrong all the time. He would prefer it Kevin.

You have to be careful around the caring "Kevin's". They're always very caring and usually know the right thing to say. I know a very nice guy named Kevin. Isn't it odd about how it seems like depending on what name a person has how their personality is similar to the name.
-- Ume Tsukino  8/29/2006
Every Kevin I've met's been a nice guy. The name itself has a friendly ring to it. Its Gaelic ancestor however sounds mean and scary. BEWARE CAOMHIN.
-- Midgard666  9/14/2006

I know a Kevin and he is nothing at all like the meaning. He is nothing near gentle, he is rude and vulgar. When I think of the name Kevin I think of a sort of person who is rough around the edges.

Unfortunately, in England a "kev" is another word for a chav; chavs are the British equivalent of white trash.

Kevin "K-Fed" Federline, Britney Spears' soon-to-be ex-husband, is a (somewhat) famous bearer.

Kevin is a sweet, gentle name. Perhaps this is my impression due to the fact that the Kevin I know is shy, rather quiet, and quite intelligent.
-- wordybookworm  2/8/2007
Kevin is one of the best boy's names out there. I can't believe how this name has died out. I don't see the name at all in the younger kids anymore. None in my boys classes at school.

I read somewhere that this name was forbidden in Mexico. I don't know if this is still true or not.

This name is given to random & unimportant characters in the T.V. show South Park. (Kenny's brother, classmate, Satan' helper, others)

I have never met a Kevin I didn't adore. So I named my first born son Kevin. I loved the old CBS cop show "Night Heat". The main cop's name was Kevin O'Brien. I thought it sounded like a cool name for a guy no matter his age. It is the best name!

Also used as a boys' name in Slovenia.
-- earthnut  7/3/2007
It is not a Slovene name, in spite there are many parents who want to be fancy by giving foreign names to their children.

No matter what, whenever I hear the name "Kevin" I think of good ole' Kevin Arnold from The Wonder Years. And he's not a bad guy to be associated to. ;]

Kevin is one of my favorite traditional names. Usually I try to stay away from traditional but in this case I'll make an exception.

Kevin is the name of my favorite singer, Kevin Richardson, who is one of the members of the famous pop group, "The Backstreet Boys". I believe this name REALLY suits him, because he is SO handsome, kind and gentle! His full name is Kevin Scott and I think it's really cool, too! I love Kevin and the rest of BSBoys! Kevin Richardson is one of the most beautiful men I've ever seen!

Kevin Barnes is the lead singer of Of Montreal.

It's not such a bad name per se, but it always manages to make me think of really dumb jocks, frat boys, and such. I suppose watching Daria may have given me this impression for good, as the character Kevin was a dumb jock.
-- slight night shiver  4/26/2008
I do not like this name. It sounds like a guy who would be a jerk. I don't know why I think this because I have never known one who was.
-- Jeremiah2911  6/27/2008
Although I've known plenty of nice guys with this name, I still hate it. It sounds like the name of the son of a stereotypical white suburban family. And for some odd reason, some Europeans have been using this name to try to be "exotic". Yuck. And the worst of all is the association with Kevin Federline, aka "K-Fed", Britney Spears' ex-husband.

After watching Pixar's latest film, "Up," I've decided that Kevin can, under some circumstances, be a feminine name. Such as when you name a weird bird on the spur of the moment, and later find out that the avian you christened is, in fact, a female with a nest of hatchlings. Do you change the name, or leave it as is? Needless to say, Kevin stuck, and I now find myself able to say "Kevin" and "she" while referring to the same individual.

Kevin James, a comedian and star of the TV sitcom The King Of Queens.

I think the reason I never liked this name is because I don't think it "feels" masculine at all. I never imagined it as a girls name until I actually heard it used for a girl. It was like an "Oh!" moment.
Kevin feels feminine. Definitely could cross-over.

Kevin from The Office!
-- willarose93  10/29/2011
I have this name, and I've never really been a fan of it. It sounds so pompous, elitist, and boring, like this guy is the killjoy at every social gathering, bragging about his 6 figure salary. The kind of guy who wears a suit at home and at bars he drinks some sort of exotic crud with eight different types of fruit and very little alcohol.
