    Gavin

    I have loved the name Gavin for a long time, and it was at the top of my list for a boy. I stopped considering it because a co-worker announced she was using it on her son (who was due two days ago and still hasn't made an appearance). I was sad that she picked it but also happy that she picked such a great name. And I just found out via Facebook that she's spelling it Gavyn. So disappointing. Anyone have other suggestions to replace Gavin on my list? And anyone have similar stories to share?

    That's a pity your co-worker is using your favorite and spelling such a wonderful name with "y". I am so sorry but it happens.

    I love the meaning and origins and that it's not too popular for me.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I know too many Garretts and Kevin is my cousin's name. I always go back and forth about Calvin. I love the nn Cal but I can't seem to picture it on a baby.
