Devon, spelled like the lovely seaside county in Britain that inspired the name, is the Number 2 spelling for boys -- far behind Devin -- and is sinking faster in popularity, probably because of its somewhat feminine feel. But both versions of the name are far more popular for boys these days than for girls.

This spelling of Devon, as opposed to Devin or Devan, makes it a pretty and popular British place-name, evoking the beautiful county of farmlands and dramatic seascapes and moors in southwest England. A stylish ambi-gender name particularly well used in the early nineties, Devon remains an attractive option.
