- Comments and insights on the name Draven: | Edit
My son's name is Drevan LeStat from the crow and queen of the damned. This dark name suits him so well I changed the spelling up since this name is growing in popularity. I considered the name for him as a gender nutural name. If he had been a girl it would have been Dravynn or drayvin. The reasearch i have done on his spelling say the meaning is ancient the normal spelling is avenger or protector. Which fit my son beautifully he is a wise soul and the oldest and only boy of 9 grandchildren. He sure is protective of all his younger sisters and cousins. LeStat the most comical meaning I get is spoiled Prince. Which is the best for him being the only boy he is a very spoiled little Prince,even all our little girls spoil him.
- Personal experiences with the name Draven: | Edit
Draven is a dark name but it also sounds sophisticated and mysterious. My son is 5 years old and I recently met a little girl with the same name. Her mother was expecting and saw a photo of my son in the local small town newspaper and loved the name. Our children are less than 1 year apart and possibly will be in the same class in school. I never thought such an obviously dark and MALE name would create the "are you referring to boy Draven or girl Draven" question. Just goes to show that as parents, we should choose our babies names wisely.
- Nicknames for Draven: | Edit
I would be cautions with abbreviating the name because it could quickly be associated in a direction you might not want to head in.
My name is and I come from Indiana so I get some hickish nicknames such as, d or dre or drav but I've been called things I don't like. But it's nice for me to know that other people have my name. I also got it from the movie "Crow" I'm also glad because you have seen that movie XD. But I'm fourteen and couldn't see myself with a different name. My middle name is Cain and I've looked that up too. But I know about the DrAvEn shoes company and I haven't bought and merchandise but I soon plan too.
- Meanings and history of the name Draven: | Edit
Could mean "child of beautiful shadows", "The Raven", or "Avenger".
Given the connection to the storyline of "The Crow", Draven, or d'raven may simply literally translate to "Of the raven".

- Draven in song, story & screen: | Edit
My nephew's name is Draven. He is 16 years old, my sister got the name from the movie "The Crow", Brandon Lee's characters name was Eric Draven. It is a very powerful name and I cannot imagine my nephew with any other name. His middle name is Lee after a family memeber. We call him Dra or Drav for short. Not sure if anyone else knows this but there is a company by the name of Draven Shoes and we order clothes and shoes from them all the time just so we can have his name on clothes. They do stickers to so we all have a Draven Shoes sticker on our car's. :)
