- Personal experiences with the name Trevor: | Edit
I have two brothers named Trevor & Travis.
Sometimes it gets confusing talking to them your like "Hey travi- I mean trev- wait no Travis!" Lol
There was a little boy at a school I worked at named Trevor and he was one of the sweetest little boys I ever met. He always wanted to hug people.
My brother's real Hebrew name is Evyatar (like Pat Benatar), so when we tried to Englify it we couldn't find anything even close to it but Trevor (Which is a cool name :D)
I named my son Trevor. He's 9 and a very sweet and caring little boy. I love that his name is easy to spell, easy to speak, and ISN'T easy to demean.
I knew a Trevor in 9th grade who was practically a genious. I can remember pouring over a biology project in the library with him next to me helping me. Also I remember him wanting to be a linguist and learning Chinese. I think it's a great name for an outgoing and sweet personalities
