  • "My son is soon to be 4, his name is Devon and I love it! Yes, I get the occasional Dev-ON. Long O, which is very annoying but even the simplest names can have someone butcher it! He is also the only Devon we have encountered, which was my main reasoning for naming him the name. Uncommon is better for me, I remember school with like 10 Dustin's in my graduating class.."

  • "my husbands name is devon and our son to peopple are always spelling it wrong and or saying it wrong our other son is devonte big jah rastafari" Jan. 14, 2008: Report as inappropriate

  • "A lot of people will pronounce it Dev-ON, with a long O(should be pronounced Devin, no matter the spelling) Kind of annoying. Or people will spell it Devin, or Devan, or even Deven. If you are going to name a male child Devon, make sure to use an O, as it will allude to the masculine in romantic languages. I do not meet that many Devo/a/e/i/ns in my day to day life." Oct. 10, 2007: Report as inappropriate
