Haven is a recently invented safe-harbor name that appeals to an increasing number of parents who don't want to voyage quite as far as Heaven.
Its choice by Jessica Alba for her second daughter has already inspired other baby namers—in 2014 it ranked at Number 333, the highest it's been since entering the list in 1996.
Haven Kimmel is the author of the bestselling memoir A Girl Named Zippy, and Haven Denney is a medal-winning skater. There was also a supernatural TV series called Haven.
