Gender: M Meaning of Kevin: "handsome" Origin of Kevin: Irish Kevin's Popularity in 2014: #70

Kevin, even though it is almost as popular as it was fifteen years ago (there were almost six thousand of them born last year), definitely seems more a young man's--even a dad's-- than a baby's name these days. (Think Kevin Bacon, Kevin Costner, Kevin Spacey, Kevin James).

Kevin was first popularized by the seventh century Saint Kevin, who founded a scholastic monastry near Dublin and was rewarded by being made one of that city's patron saints. In America, the Irish Kevin has had an impressive forty-plus years of popularity.
