This is a fairly recent one: Dave is the name of Satina's father in the recent web series "Satina". Satina is a half-breed, as Dave is a human and her mother, Lucia, is a demon.

Dave (his last name was never revealed) was one of the main characters in the popular CBC radio show "The Vinyl Cafe", hosted by Stuart McLean. The show was a telling of stories about Dave, his wife Morley, and children Stephanie and Sam (sometimes the stories don't feature them but they are definitely the main people). Dave owns a record store by the same name and is always getting in trouble (he once filled the school playground with frogs, etc). He is an awful liar (but he loves pranks) and probably has anxiety. The show ended after host Stuart McLean was diagnosed with cancer in 2015.

It's a weird position where people are named David but don't have Dave as a nickname. I feel like I'm supposed to know someone who goes by Dave but I jUsT DoN'T. Also I don't recommend naming your tiny heathen this if you're wondering, just have them be David.

I think Dave is a pretty awesome name! It's rather informal, sure, but I think it is a bit of a time saver to call someone Dave instead of David. Also, I mostly think it's cool because it's my name. And I'm cool.

I think it's a cool name, but sounds too insubstantial as a legal name, which is why I only like it it's short for David.

I feel that this name is of someone that is cool. Someone needs to name something that they feel is cool this name, like a car of something.
