Meaning of Devin

Our research has shown various etymological origins of the Irish name Devin. Firstly, the name is derived from the Gaelic surname “O Damháin” - 'tawny' descended from Damhan, a personal nickname from the word for Secondly, the name could have developed from the Celtic “Dan” meaning ' gift' or “Dána” which means 'fearless, bold.' Third, the name came to Ireland via the Normans and carries with it an Old French origin meaning 'divine, perfect, divine.' In medieval France, Devin was given as a nickname to the highest of kings, as a title conveying a sense of perfection and excellence.


While the name is considered unisex in the United States, Devin fell off the women's charts in 2005 (after a relatively short 27-year stint) and appears to be exclusively for boys now. Devin debuted on the US charts for children in 1957 and enjoyed a slow and uneventful rise up the charts. He has carried the name for about 30 years, but finally reached a spot on the Top 100 list of most favored boy names in 1987 and saw most of his success in the 1990s. Devin never achieved a higher rank than #58 in America and eventually falling off the Top 100 list in 2007. The name has been in decline for 15 years and shows no signs of reversing. Nevertheless, Devin is a solid choice for parents interested in Irish Gaelic or sounding names. It still sounds very androgynous despite the fact that it is rarely used for girls. Devin is a confident female-sounding name reserved for parents who don't need to follow trends other than up-to-the-minute naming. This one stands out from the crowd.
