User comments for Raven
Famous Bearer: Actress Raven-Symoné, who goes by Raven, stars in the TV series "That's so Raven". Also she has been in Dr. Dolittle 1 and 2, and the Princess Diaries: The Royal Engangement. Also, I love this name.
There is a cartoon character called Raven in Teen Titans. She is said to be the End Of The World, but luckily her friends and Raven stopped it. Raven means "death" and other things which are bad.
Raven Simone & the children's T. V. Show "That's so Raven" has made this name much more known. Now it just seems trendy and insubstantial. A Raven can also be an omen of death which is not something I would want my child to be associated with in any way.
Raven De Head, the middle child of the infamous De Head family in "The Big Birkett", alternately known as "The Sweet, Terrible, Glorious Year I Truly, Completely, Lost it". All of the boys in the De Head family - sons of the man who blew the head off the statue of the town's founder - are named after birds.
I like this name on anyone, really, mainly because I've heard of several different Ravens: Raven De Head, Raven-Symone, and Raven from Teen Titans. I'm sure there are more that I just have yet to see.
Xandria has a song called "Ravenheart", from their album of the same name. The song is a reference to the Edgar Allan Poe poem "The Raven". There's a line in the song that goes:
"Will I get back whom I adore?
Thus spoke the Raven: Nevermore"
Obviously a reference to "The Raven". "Ravenheart" is Xandria's most famous song. I think Raven is a beautiful name.
In the book Sunshine by Robin McKinley, the name of the main character is Raven, and her nickname is Rae, which then gave her the nickname Sunshine, which is what she went by. It's interesting because Raven makes you think of darkness and night, and Sunshine makes you think of light and day. It actually made sense, because the book was about vampires, and Sunshine was a vampire slayer. Though she also fell in love with the vampire Constantine. Anyway, it's a great book, and I love the names Raven and Sunshine, though I don't like Rae.
Raven is the name of one of the (male) main characters in the game Tales of Vesperia for the XBox360.

Alexander Raven Thompson, who was normally styled A. Raven Thompson, was a prominent British Fascist (one of Sir Oswald Mosley's lot) in the 1930s-50s.
I quite like the name, but it reminds me of Ebony Dark'ness Dementia Raven Way, the main character of the terrible fan fiction My Immortal.
