I think Deborah is way prettier, too. I can see why people think of this as a fresh alternative, but I just can't love it somehow.

It's pronounced exactly like Deborah, but with a "V" sound - Dev instead of Deb.

How is this name pronounced? Does it rhyme with Deborah/Debra but with a "v"? Is there a different original pronunciation?
