I really like the name Kevin! I think that it is okay to have some girls have boys’ names, but I think Kevin is going a little far. It is a nice, classic, and very masculine name. It seems almost a little strange and confusing to be named Kevin, as a girl. All the Kevin’s I have met have been super nice.
Ridiculous as a girl's name- what is wrong with *actual* girl names? It isn't "yooneek" or "cre8ive" to give a girl a masculine name, it's just silly.

Kevin Baird is the bassist for the band Two Door Cinema Club.
I have this name, and I've never really been a fan of it. It sounds so pompous, elitist, and boring, like this guy is the killjoy at every social gathering, bragging about his 6 figure salary. The kind of guy who wears a suit at home and at bars he drinks some sort of exotic crud with eight different types of fruit and very little alcohol.
Kevin from The Office!
I think the reason I never liked this name is because I don't think it "feels" masculine at all. I never imagined it as a girls name until I actually heard it used for a girl. It was like an "Oh!" moment.

After watching Pixar's latest film, "Up," I've decided that Kevin can, under some circumstances, be a feminine name. Such as when you name a weird bird on the spur of the moment, and later find out that the avian you christened is, in fact, a female with a nest of hatchlings. Do you change the name, or leave it as is? Needless to say, Kevin stuck, and I now find myself able to say "Kevin" and "she" while referring to the same individual.

Although I've known plenty of nice guys with this name, I still hate it. It sounds like the name of the son of a stereotypical white suburban family. And for some odd reason, some Europeans have been using this name to try to be "exotic". Yuck. And the worst of all is the association with Kevin Federline, aka "K-Fed", Britney Spears' ex-husband.
I do not like this name. It sounds like a guy who would be a jerk. I don't know why I think this because I have never known one who was.
It's not such a bad name per se, but it always manages to make me think of really dumb jocks, frat boys, and such. I suppose watching Daria may have given me this impression for good, as the character Kevin was a dumb jock.

You have to be careful around the caring "Kevin's". They're always very caring and usually know the right thing to say. I know a very nice guy named Kevin. Isn't it odd about how it seems like depending on what name a person has how their personality is similar to the name.

I am married to a Kevin and what I have found in life is that no matter what Kevin's get a bad rap. They always seem to be in the wrong place at the wrong time and get in trouble even if they're not guilty. They have a quick temper and feel that they are not taken seriously. Every one I have ever encountered has been handsome with that cute child-like appearance. They always seem up to something. I think they are great and need extra special attention.
My name is Kevin and I don't exactly require special attention. I just favor it. Boyish good looks and a bad habit of being in the wrong place at the wrong time do seem to be symptoms I suffer from though.
I think this name is too boring.
Honestly, @KylieXxX you have nothing to say on this topic. Your name is quite literally KYLIE, so don't even be chatting.
It's a great name: friendly, traditional yet also modern.... its virtues are endless.
