  • "I love the name Devin for a girl! I plan to gift it to my daughter one day, especially since I just found out Devin means "poet". Beautiful." Mar. 5, 2017: Report as inappropriate

  • "I love the name! It's very different and unique! And yes I do agree with some; I hate when people refer to my name as a boys!" Jan. 2, 2016: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Devin and I am a female. I believe my name fits me well since I'm more of a tomboy. Its like my mom knew me before well when I was born. I get asked all the time why my mom named me Devin. But personally I don't see why anyone would really care about someone's name. There are plenty of unisex names out there, what makes this one different. That's when that old saying comes in "Don't judge a book by its cover"." May. 20, 2015: Report as inappropriate

  • "My daughter's name is Deviin. Spell really different from the others. I have always love this name since I saw the movie Casper with Devon Sawa. I know it then i will name my kid that either a boy or a girl. At first my daughter did not like her name. She was always made fun of because kids say its a boys name. I told her shes special to me and shes name after a famous actor since then she did not care who made fun of her name. She loves her name but she just hate that they spell it wrong and pronounce it wrong. I love my daughter's name and i love how i spell it too.. DEVIIN!!" Mar. 24, 2015: Report as inappropriate

  • "My names Devyn I agree Devyn is beautiful and unique we are thoughtful people who are proud to be a rare named person! I sware I am the only girl named Devyn in my school I think it is funny the way you say it! It's so special and if you haven't met any Devyns I'll tell you you will I live in VA I'll see you around" Oct. 17, 2014: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Devin and I'm a girl :) I hate when people say its a boy name! I love my name though but everyone spells my name wrong they spell it Devon or Devyn I would really like to meet a girl named Devin but most Devins are boys but I feel special bc I'm the only girl devin in my school so no one has my name in the school" Apr. 21, 2014: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is "Devyn" and i am a girl. said the same way as devin just spelled differently and I love it! My mom spelled it with a Y instead of a I bc she thought it was more feminine that way :)" May. 31, 2013: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Devin! I like it, most people tend to think its a boys name though. The reactions I get from people can be entertaining/ annoying. I wear a name-tag at work and people are always saying things like "Is that your name-tag or someone elses?" Sometimes I feel like I have to convince them that Devin is my real name! =] People spell it wrong a lot too or when they first meet me they always expect a boy. I've only met a hand full of other girls with this name but its always exciting when I do meet them." Jun. 24, 2012: Report as inappropriate

  • "My daughter is DEVYN. I LOVE her name. She would rather have a traditional girls' name. I say no way, you're too beautiful to have an ordinary name! I hope she grows to love it as much as I do." Mar. 23, 2012: Report as inappropriate

  • "I love my name (Devin)!! I agree with the post that Devin as a woman's name is powerful & unique. After a recent trip to Devon, England & I was very proud to have such a beautiful place as my namesake (although spelled a little differently)! As for nicknames, some people will call me Dev, Dev Dev or Captain ( my middle name is Tennille). And yes I do get the occasional "I was expecting a guy when I saw your name" but there's usually a quick apology from that person that follows! I hope everyone enjoys the name Devin too. :)" Sep. 16, 2011: Report as inappropriate

  • "My Name is Devin, i am a guy and I always hear that Devin is a more popular girls name, but in my little town there is five guys named Devin, Four of them are a twin in a set of twins, I am a Twin, so i think it is a popular name for twins." May. 10, 2011: Report as inappropriate

  • "My daughter's name is Devinne. I love it but was also told by many it was a boys' name or I had misspelled it although I got it out of a baby book. It is mispronounced in so many ways but I don't regret spelling it this way. It seems more girly to me and she is fine with it." Dec. 13, 2010: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Devin. I have met two other people with the same name and same spelling but they were both boys. It gets me really mad when people think its only a boys name. People almost always spell it right but somethimes they ask if it's devan. I'm a rather shy person so the name doesn't really fit. I really wish i had a nickname i have always been just Devin and i would love a nickname. But i wouln't change my name for all the money in the world." Jun. 1, 2010: Report as inappropriate

  • "This is my daughter's name. I absolutely love this name. I first heard it on a Billy Idol video "The Cradle of Love" where the girl introduces herself as Devin. Since then I swore I'd name my daughter Devin and now right about 20yrs later I did. :D" Apr. 16, 2010: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Devin and people spell in wrong all the time even my family i just hate it but i love my name i never knew anyone who has the same name so i think it is a rare name" Feb. 11, 2010: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Devin too and I absolutely love it! I haven't met many other girls with the same name and spelling (I've met a Devan, a Devyn, a Devon, etc.) so I like to think it's pretty rare and what makes me unique. Of course people tend to assume I'm a boy when they first hear my name, but I've just learned to laugh and shrug it off. They can obviously tell I'm a girl when they meet me so it doesn't really matter. The name Devin for girls is definitely becoming more popular, though." May. 29, 2008: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Devin and I am a very girly-girl. When I was growing up and now people always assume its a boys name. I love my name and no one I really know has my name. When people bring up my name everyone knows that they are talking about me. It could be a good and a bad thing, but I dont care I LOVE MY NAME!!!" Apr. 16, 2008: Report as inappropriate

  • "My identical twin sister's name is devin, but we spell it with an a, like devan. My name is kara and when we were babies people used to think that we were boy/girl twins because devan can be a boys name. They also thought that we were boy/girl because kara is such a girly name and so is grace (my older sister's name) so people thought that devan would have a girlier name. we are 8 now and grace is 9 and people always get devan and me mixed up but they know we are both girls."

  • "Devin is my name! People almost always spell it wrong, even my family. I like my name sometimes, because it is original for a girl but maybe I will grow to like it more. Most people think that I am a boy though until I meet them.

  • "well first off my name is spellt, D-e-v-y-n. it has been vary hard have this name at some points in my life. In kindergarden through 5th grade there was another Devan in my classes. So when ever the teacher would call on one of us we would'nt know who they were talking to. Now Devan is not in my classes any more but he still goes to the same school as me, so its somewhat still hard. Also, people would joke around saying tht it would be weird if we got married then we would be Devyn and Devan Warner. (Warner is his last name)elementery school was h-e double hockey sticks for me!!!" Feb. 1, 2008: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Devin and people ALWAYS spell it with an "o" I always introduce myself and say "I know its a boys name." I like the name because if someone says it I know they're talking to me unless I'm with a Kevin or Evan." Jan. 8, 2008: Report as inappropriate

  • "Devin is my name. People often spell it wrong, most commonly being, Devon, or Deven. Many people automatically assume that I am a guy and I haven't met too many people with the same name.
