Trevor has always seemed like the classic misbehaving 5-year-old boy's name. When I see it, I hear some poor mother screaming "TREVOR, NO!!" at the top of her lungs. Maybe it's a regional thing.

I've always associated the name Trevor with a Trevor the Tractor cartoon character- though I don't know where it came from, or if it's even an actual cartoon. Either that, or Neville Longbottom's toad Trevor from the Harry Potter series :b
