"friend of the people"

Arvin Origin and Meaning

The name Arvin is a boy's name of German origin meaning "friend of the people".
This name's popularity peaked in the 1930s in the mid 600s - but we think it is time for a reconsideration. Arvin feels more modern than similar names like Marvin and Alvin. It also boasts a beautiful meaning and defies easy shortening (which is an asset to many parents who choose a name because they want it to be used!).
