Gender: M Meaning of Neville: "new town" Origin of Neville: French

More often used in Britain than here, where most names ending in ville fall into the unthinkable class, this might make an exception via fans of the musical Neville Brothers.

Charles Dickens used the name for a character in his unfinished novel The Mystery of Edwin Drood.
