"I've always liked this name and luckily my partner too so we named our first son Kevin. It really suits him. He's very sweet and funny <3" Apr. 20, 2017:
"The name Kevin is one that works for all age groups, old or young. However, my brothers name is Kevin, my dads name is Kevin, my uncles name is Kevin, my ex-boyfriends name is Kevin, and I work with two Kevins. Sooo, it is definitely overused (at least in my area). Great name though!" Mar. 31, 2015:
"My son's name is Kevin. He's an identical twin. I wasn't sold on the name until I decided he "looked" like a Kevin..lol. Many times we call him "Kev". I think that is an affectionate and masculine nickname for the name Kevin. I was right though. His name suits him well." May. 30, 2013:
"Such a strong name that suits a boy well from childhood to adulthood. Cute for a little boy, yet strong sounding for when he grows to be a man. Not super trendy or popular, yet not bizzare. A perfect name really :)" Aug. 14, 2011:
"i really like the name Kevin. i have for like forever. it sounds really nice. and all the Kevin's that i know are hilarious!" Jun. 24, 2011:
"I named my son Kevin Andrew(he was born in 2006). I love the name Kevin and I've loved it since I was in grade school. I think it's a strong, male name and it has actually decreased in popularity. People will know how to spell it and say it but you won't have to worry about having 4 other Kevin's in your son's class. I'm sorry, but I'm not the type of mom who wants her kid to be Forrest of Leaf or Cameron. Let's bring back the "boring" names!!!" Jul. 19, 2009:
"HI. My name is Kevin. I love my name because it's not Kevon or Keven. I know lots of Kevins, but it's still a cool name. GO LEAFS, GO!" Sep. 11, 2007:
"my ex-neighbor (but still great friend)s name is kevin. he's funny and i love him. he does have a habit of eating out of my fridge though...but i dont think that's common among kevins. --livi b. bev,MA :)" Jun. 5, 2007:
"My name is Kevin and I think it's a great name. It's common enough that people know how to spell and pronounce it but it's unique enough where you're not always running into situations where there's lots of Kevins in the same class/office/team, etc.
Stick with the classic spelling though. If you go with "Keven" or "Kevon" people will always get it wrong and you'll never find personalized pencils or mugs at the store ;)" Apr. 16, 2007:
"I am 35 yrs old and know by the name Kev, I like my name and when I strumble across Kevin name sakes in life they all seem good characters like myself! Who said 'it's in the name'!!" Jun. 23, 2006:

"Kevin! There's something about men named with the letter,"K." It just doesn't seem manly to me. Kevin sounds like a guy with clunky glasses who wears too much aftershave lotion." Dec. 7, 2008:

"After writing out a long list of favorite boys names, my husband quickly chose Kevin from the list, I'm thrilled - it makes me think of Kevin on The Wonder Years, and we love Kevin Nealan - also thrilled because we don't seem to have any little Kevins in our church group yet :))" Jun. 13, 2013:

"I didn't like my name to much when I was in grade school. There was a popular local children's show then called JP Patches in which he had a rubber Turkey that he always refered to as Kevin Turkey. Got razzed by that for quite awile. I do however like the name Kev. I would also tend to agree that most other Kevin's I meet seem to be pretty nice guys." Dec. 18, 2008:
"my brother's name is kevin and it fits him. it means handsome and i guess he's not that bad looking (: but what he and i hate about that name is that so many people are named Kevin. several times he had to go by Kevin (intial of last name) and that's annoying." Sep. 3, 2008:
