Personal experiences with the name Devin: | Edit

I know a boy with this spelling, but I prefer Devon, otherwise it reminds me of Devil!

My husband's name is Devin, and I've known many boys through out my life named Devin. Never once associated it with "Devil." My husband (mostly), and I find it annoying when people spell his name with an O.

I agree, both my husband and our first son names are Devin and devil is something that WILL NEVER be associated with the two of them. And I, too hate when people spell their names with an "O"
