My 9 year old is named Nevan, we also call him Nev or Nevy....and he's the only one in his school with his name!

I love this, and Nev would make a cute nickname, but not keen on the Neville association, as don't like Neville much as a name, and also, know someone with that as a last name...! (Enough said.) I do like the sound of Nevin though, as it is similar to Kevin.

Unique Irish name that I would think should be more popular than it is- I've only met one person named Nevin. It fits right into the Kevin-Aidan type that's really popular.

I love this name and how it's the perfect mixture of Neville and Nolan. Same great sound as Evan but made more interesting and has the nn availability of Nev.
