This name is often used on babies who, without being Levis (Jewish hereditary priesthood), are of Levi descent.
-- Miss Claire  12/5/2004
Two rather unfortunate anagrams of this name are "evil" and "vile".
-- Anonymous User  6/11/2005
I'm glad I'm not the only person who saw those anagrams (nobody else seems to get that). However, on the flipside, another anagram is "live".

I'm surprised Levi Strauss, the inventor of blue jeans, is not listed as a namesake.

I really like the name Levi for a boy and its biblical connections. I did hear of a girl with the name but prefer it for a boy. The other thing that goes with this is Levi Jeans.

Pronounced LEH-VEE.
-- Miss Claire  7/29/2006
This name is pronounced LEE-vie (rhymes with "knee high"). It's only pronounced LEH-vee if you are French.

I know a guy named Levi, but he spells it with a y, so it's Levy.

This is quite simply the best name in the whole world! I've never met any other person with this name which is why I feel so proud to have been blessed with such an amazing name! Glad to see so many people agree and I hope you were all as lucky as I was to have such a mint ass name!

This name spells EVIL if you rearrange the letters!

I don't like the name Levi since I saw a documentary about a Christian camp and there was a really annoying kid called Levi.
-- honungspinglan  1/7/2007
It's a very cool name and very rare. I don't know anyone with this name.
-- gym4god  2/4/2007
My husband goes by his middle name, but his first name is Levi. When we met, I thought it was the worst name I'd ever heard. I was embarrassed to tell people his name! Over the years, I've decided that it's a kind of a neat name after all. It's very unique, for one thing.
-- Katzpur  5/24/2007
I really like this name. I know 1 person called Levi, so it probably isn't that popular over here (the Netherlands).
-- Mango  5/30/2007
I see this name as being a really great middle name. It's short yet tasteful. I keep wanting to pronounce it as LEV-vee which is bothersome. Other than that it really isn't a bad name at all. And with that whole anagram problem, well lessee here: Levi = Evil = Vile = Live = Levi. Hm, in the end nobody (except anagram nerds XP) think about this when a person introduces themselves as Levi.
-- Cyneburga  6/17/2007
In the United States, this name is pronounced Lee-Vi, like Levi Strauss (jeans).
-- QueenoftheHouse  6/20/2007
This is my son's name. It is becoming more popular according to the social security index. I think the name is a nice, manly type of name. You could picture a country boy with this name or a businessman.

In Georgia, the Amber alert system is called "Levi's call". A child name Levi Frady was abducted and killed in 1997. In Levi's memory, the Levi's Call was created.

Levi is dog´s name from TV series Sue Thomas: F.B.Eye. It´s terrible name. :-(
-- Janika  7/13/2007
I've heard this name pronounced both LEE-vie and LEH-vee in the US. A famous bearer is Primo Levi, and he pronounced it LEH-vee.
-- earthnut  8/16/2007
I don't care for this name because it has become so trendy over here in the U.S. When I hear the name Levi, I think of a pair of jeans (Levi Jeans).
-- joanie2007  8/17/2007
I've liked the name Levi ever since I read a book with an awesome character named Levi. Also, I'd like to add that I saw a man named Levite once. I thought that was very interesting.

Levi is a golden retriever hearing dog in the show Sue Thomas F. B. Eye. The name fits him perfectly and I have definitely added it to my favorite names! Both for boys, and for dogs. It's a good name.

This is my brother's middle name, and the first name of one of our ancestors. I've always loved this name, for it's biblical connections, and just how wonderful and masculine it is.
-- Anonymous User  7/27/2008
Before I met my best-friend-that-is-a-boy, I've never heard of the name Levi, I've only seen it from "Levi's Jeans" store's billboard and stuff, and at that time, I thought it was pronounced "leevee" and I was like, "what kind of name is that?!" but after I heard the real pronunciation, I thought it wasn't bad.
-- i_n_g_r_i_d  7/29/2008
Pronounced LAY-vee in Hebrew.
-- ZoeAliza  8/15/2008
Also pronounced LEH-vee in German speaking countries. Levi Strauss's (inventor of blue jeans) name was actually also pronounced LEH-vee.
-- Lily8  8/24/2008
Everytime I hear this name a pair of jeans comes to mind.
-- number1212  8/29/2008
A girl I know named her son Levi. At first I thought it was kinda weird but I have grown to really love it. :) It's cute and not very popular where I live. I consider using it as a middle name one day.
-- Anonymous User  9/29/2008
This is a really awesome name in my opinion - not because of its meaning or origin or anything like that, but because it always makes me think of jeans!
-- Anonymous User  3/9/2009
I absolutely love this name for a boy, it is so masculine and strong sounding. If I have a son someday, it would be between this name and Gabriel. I like the pronunciation LEAVE-I.
-- smurphul  8/14/2009
Just plain love it! Love the way it sounds, love what it means, love it. It's short, unique and did I mention I really love it? It's my dad's middle name and his grandpa's middle name. I came extremely close to naming my son this and if I should be blessed with another son I will use this as his first or middle name. Oh and about the jeans thing, that was my concern with my first son. I got to thinking about it though and if you're going to have a connotation with your name why not let it be with something cool and everybody likes - like jeans?
-- mom2zeke  9/12/2009
I like this a lot but don't know if I could name a child it. I can't imagine it on a person but I've never met anyone called it before so I guess I am just not used to it.
-- Anonymous User  11/11/2009
I don't care for this name. It's getting trendy because some actor used it on his son, and it doesn't sound very nice. It's also an anagram of "evil". ;)
-- bananarama  12/19/2009
Pronounced LEH-vee (shortly) in Czechia and Slovakia too.
-- MaggieSimpson  2/11/2010
Only Jews and evangelical fanatics use this name. It's a silly name for a Gentile.
-- johann14  3/2/2010
I LOVE Levi!
It's sweet yet uncommon, but it sounds weird on a little girl.
-- Anonymous User  10/29/2010
Original Hebrew pronunciation is LAY-VEE. I like it but only pronounced that way.
-- ZoeAliza  11/21/2010
A famous bearer is Levi Johnston.
-- Dawson  1/16/2011
I used to think this name was silly until I read the book "Unwind" where one of the main characters was called Levi, he went by Lev though.

Anyway, now it's one of my favorite names.
-- FlakyMatt  5/2/2011
This is my son's name and I LOVE IT. It's been a favorite of mine since childhood picking out my future kids names and this one stuck. It never bothered me that this was a name of a clothes brand. In fact, Levi Strauss (creator of brand) was born on my birthday! And that made it a bit more special. I love seeing my son's name plastered on the walls of the department stores... and so does he. I love the meaning "Joined in harmony" this name is perfect for him.
-- rrm_80  7/27/2011
It's amazing how some names can have so much history, yet sound so overly-modern and childish. Really, Levi sounds like the name of a small boy rather than a man, and it's so tryndie, like one of the new "it" names, along with Hayden, Aidan, Nevaeh, Aaliyah, and the likes.

Whenever I hear this name, I'm thinking "a jew, a jew, a jew!"

I love the name Levi. I don't care if it seems "trendy". It's a historical name and legit name. So it doesn't seem that way to me. I am currently expecting. If I have a boy I am thinking of using the name Levi. I like the Biblical connection. Levi was the son of Jacob. My husband is named Jacob. My husband also has Hebrew ancestry. Many names considered trendy are "made up" sounding. Levi is not and as I stated a historical legit name. And I read some of the comments about the anagrams of evil or vile. But it don't come to mind when seeing the name. Maybe the live anagram. Long live Levi sounds good to me lol. But I seriously do love this name. And I don't associate it to the trendy names out there. It is becoming more popular lately. But that is only because it is a good name and many people love it. There are so many classy historical names that are popular for the same reason. So I definitely don't put Levi in the trendy category at all. Not with the history of the name.

Levi is the name of a main character in Neal Shusterman's novel Unwind. He's usualy called Lev.
-- Karina Guadalupe  9/23/2012
I like this name, it's really a cool name. But for some reason I had a feeling it was becoming more popular, and I was surprised to find when I checked that it was #66 in the US. So, even though it's been used throughout history and is in no way modern or trendy, it definitely seems like it, which is a shame. This has happened to a lot of names over the years, though especially recently.

Personally I have always pronounced it lee-vye. I like the name.
-- Skylar_Arianna  5/22/2013
This name is really growing on me. It's classic, yet funky and strong.
