My name is Adam Levi (LEE-vi). I'm not Jewish but it sounds very Jewish. I'm actually Native American and really love my name.

I'll be using this as a middle name for my future son.

I agree that it sounds childish and immature, even though I understand it has a long history attached to it. There's nothing wrong with it, I just can't picture it on a grown man.

My son's name is Levi. We're Norwegians and pronounce the name differently than in English. Le-vee. Love that name. My favorite!

A character in the series entitled "Centennial" was named Levi. He was a burly man that lived in the mountains of Colorado. Centennial is a great watch, if you have the time.

I wanna give my furure son this as a middle name. I love this name so much, but I hate that it also spells Evil.

I really like this name, but I hate the Biblical connection. I'm not religious, so I wouldn't want to use such and outwardly religious name. So in a way, I wish I didn't like it so much.

My son's middle name is Levi. (pronounced like the jeans). It fits perfect with his first name Wyatt. His name just runs smoothly together.

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 and health! 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 seems kind of childish to me. I don't think Levi will age well on a person, especially not in the professional world. This name makes me think of a pair of jeans and hickish/redneck type people.

My parents were going to name me Levi if I had been a boy. Thankfully I was a girl. I think it's an ugly name, and would have had to go by my middle name, Jackson.

This is the first name of my youngest son, and I love it more and more as time goes on! When I first heard it, both my husband and I hated it and thought it was a terrible name, but over time we grew to love it and decided that if we ever had another son we would use it... and we did! It fits our Levi perfectly, he's tough and masculine, is extremely strong willed, and is a natural leader. He can be super sweet when he wants to be, and he loves to laugh... great name!

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.

Levi is the name of a main character in Neal Shusterman's novel Unwind. He's usualy called Lev.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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". ;)

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.

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?

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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".
