I honestly always think that Calvin is spelled like Kalvin, which I think looks better but I don't know...

Hey guys, I’m calling my kid bald. I mean it’s the greatest meaning I totally couldn’t have used such a prettier name or better meaning because this is what my child will be stuck with forever -_-

I am Calvin Bentley. Aka Mr C/ Mr Big man.
The name means loving. Strong. Not to mess with. Loyal. Religious. And the best name you will ever come across. Very rare and one of a kind. So to all you haters of the name Calvin. You just wish you was in the category of being one of a kind. Peace and love to you all.

First off, I am named Calvin, and have been for 70 years. I grew up in California where I disliked the name as it was "different" everyone else was named Dave or Mike. Later on in life I moved to the South (of the United States) where the name is more common. I have not done real research but my impression over the years is that Calvin is mainly a Southern name and used most often for African American males.

I mean I'm completely neutral in this name, it's whatever, but the meaning is bad.

This name is cute and I'm really tired of everyone constantly saying a boy name can be used for girls. Girls have plenty of cute names can they just stick with those. Boy options are bleak.

Although Calvin is a classy and timeless boy’s name, who knows if a famous female model could pull this name off? Let’s say her name was Calvin Marie, and she was given a boyish name just because her parents wanted to be unique. I do think that these celebrities with masculine names normally turn out very feminine, and the middle names are the ones responsible for the feminine touch.

I don't like the meaning. The name itself is nice, it doesn't remind me of Snoop Dogg.

I kind of have mixed feelings towards this name, to be honest. I really don't like its meaning. I also really don't like the association it has with being Snoop Dog's real name. However, one of the first friends I have ever had was named this, so it's kind of hard for me to hate this name.

I personally hate the name Calvin, I put it in lowercase because I don't think the name deserves any respect in the slightest.

Don't like it... It sounds like a name of someone who won't get far in life.

I love this name and I’m not familiar with any of the above associations. I was born in the 1990s? My only association with the name is baseball. How about Hall of Famer Cal Ripken Jr. And of course his father Cal Ripken! The name screams baseball to me. However, I could see Calvin into technology or science too. This name could fit any personality in my opinion.

KALVIN/CALVIN

(KAL/CAL) actually originated from the Sumerian language from ancient Mesopotamia and means "highly esteemed or valued" or "precious" and (VIN) or (YEN) originates from the Dravidian Ugor-Finn language from the same period and means "sky, high, chief god"

Kal-(l): v., to esteem, value; to be rare; to make dear, endear; to be appreciated.

http://www.sumerian.org/sumcvc.htm

(VIN)

Sky, High, chief god
( *SANKE > YEN>-ANK>-�G, -AN-)

In both Sumerian and FinnUgor the original sky god often delegates to the air god various tasks of creation and in many examples we see that the air/weather god replaces the old sky god in importance over time, substituting his original name for the generic word for god at times.

3)Dravidian _an=upper part, an-ar=ascend, vin=sky

http://users.cwnet.com/millenia/FUgods.htm

Sumerian is older than the standard French 'chauvin' This supports the earliest known use of the components that arrive at the given name. The standard French 'chauvin' therefore is incorrect in that it is a more recent compound.

I think it sounds dumb and low-class, and of course there's the association with religious extremist John Calvin. Not to mention there's that annoying, trashy, binge-drinking DJ Calvin Harris (can't stand that guy at all).

In 2009, Harris released his second studio album Ready for the Weekend, which debuted at number one on the UK Albums Chart and was later certified gold by the British Phonographic Industry within two months of its release.

From my research on the internet, this is the ONLY site that lists the spelling of the ORIGIN of this French surname as Chauvin. All other sites state the French spelling of this surname is Cauvin, derived from the Latin word for "bald." [noted -ed]

Reminds me of Calvin and Hobbes! If a kid was named this, they might get references to those comics, but probably not very often since most people their age won't know what they are. I really like this name, cal isn't too bad of a nickname either.

I hate this name. I don't like the -vin at the end, and knowing who the evil John Calvin was makes this name ridiculous.

This is my favorite name for a boy. It's a classic that isn't overly common and ages well, working for a little boy (thanks to Calvin and Hobbes) or an adult. It fits whatever your son grows up to be because it is both masculine but can also work for someone who's sort of indie. I love it.

My name is Calvin and I like it very much. It is actually a pretty rare name where I live (Brazil) though it always reminds people of Calvin and Hobbes.

Suddenly I'm totally in love with this name. It's so cool and masculine, and I love love love the nickname Cal. I'm not a religious person, but the so-called religious connotations of this name don't bother me, as I don't think such connotations are that strong at all. If I had a baby boy to name at this minute, I'd call him Calvin.

The religious history of the name, Calvin Klein, and the fact that this is Snoop Dogg's name are all contributing factors as to why I don't like the name.

Calvin and Hobbes was my favorite comic strip of all time. Calvin was an over-hyper little boy whose best friend was his stuffed tiger, Hobbes.
