My nine year old step daughters name. Right now she claims she hates her name. I tell her one day, she will love it. Its a unique name, its a nature name, but its not fluffy, it has a bit or darkness and mystery to it, probably due to the poem 'the raven' Its also fun to say, ray-ven! Its beautiful just like her.

Haha, I love the name Raven. It's my nickname~ :o Then it got shortened to Rae. Some how. Then my friend started calling me Raemund. Whoo!

I love the name Raven, personally. It's a beautiful and unique name to own and live with forever. It's cute for a little girl, I think..and when she's a teenager/adult it'll still fit, instead of one of my daughter's, Paislee May. I also have another daughter Anacaren but I think that it didn't suit her as a little girl, but now she's 9 and It's better. Raven is inter'sting and I am pregnant with ANOTHER girl. We plan to name her Violet or Raven!

We named our son Seth (now 5), in England people either love it or hate it. Considering its such an old name, I am often surprised how many people ask how It's spelt. It'sometimes get confused with Steph. We still absolutely love the name and It'suits him perfectly and he is the only Seth in his school.

Though i've only heard of two more people who i've met that have the'same name, it actually makes me feel unique- I'm proud of my name,proud of the fact that It's not exceedingkly common and,in a strange way, exotic. Also, after finding out about its origin and definition in Hebrew, it has become even more meaningful to me.
